The first family I nannied for the kids were 2 and 5 when I started. I watched them for 3 summers and enjoyed every minute of it. I did some minor cleaning of the house and made the kids breakfast, lunch and snacks. I watched them Monday through Friday from 7-4. Usually we would go to the beach, park or try to be outside as much as possible. They would also do some school work books and when they finished a section for the week we would go to a movie or get ice cream as a treat. I stopped nanny for this family because the oldest girl moved up a grade in school and needed a teacher/nanny to help her with the new curriculum. I still babysit for this family on a regular basis. The second family I nannied for was a family of two girls 4 and 8. I watched them throughout the summer 3 days a we'll for about 8 hours each day. We would do day trips to the museums, lake Harriet, or even the zoo. Like before I did minor house cleaning and made breakfast, lunch and snacks for the girls.

I have extensive experience caring for children from birth to age five. I offer a structured child based environment, that is both fun and educational. I enjoy watching children challenge themselves and be successful. Tuning into a child's needs or abilities has always been a great gift of mine. I have an extremely high level of patience, which allows me to calmly address many "hiccups" that come and go with watching young children. I honestly feel that I was put on this earth with a gift to help children learn, play, and grow.

Although I've never gotten paid to be a professional 'nanny', I'm a very fit gramma of 5 (2-13), the oldest of 7 siblings (also had foster care children in our home), and 5 children (2 of my own), my childcare experience of all ages is vast.

I have been babysitting children since I was 13 years old. I love taking care of children of all ages. I have been nannying for the past three summers. I nannied for 3 kids (4, 7, 10) 3 days a weeks, but last summer was when I really decided to tackle a full-time nanny job. I cared for 2 boys (7, 11) 5 days a week. I drove them to practice, made them lunch, went grocery shopping, and took care of other household responsibilities. All in all, the most important job was entertaining them--which is my favorite part.

I was a nanny for a family with two little energetic boys ages 5 and 7 along with their 2 year old Yorkie, but unfortunately their mom quit her job so they no longer needed me.
