I started nannying over eight years ago. My favorite part of nannying is watching the kids grow and learn. I have nannied for single families. I have also participated in nanny shares (caring for the children of two families at once). I have cared for up to six children at a time. I am skilled at multitasking and time management. I believe that that it is very important for children to have time to be silly, active, loved and explore the world. I enjoy exploring new libraries, parks, museums, zoos and walking paths. It is important for children to see the world. I consider myself a silly, loving, creative and busy person. Previously I worked in a day care setting for two years. I have experience working in the infant room. With nine babies and three teachers it is a very busy and fun room to be in. I have learned many important things from being challenged in that environment. I am very familiar with baby sign (signs babies may use to communicate before they are able to talk). I will teach your children colors, animals, and numbers. I also can teach some helpful words such as milk, sleep, potty, more, please and thank you. These are helpful to break the communication barrier for children who are just learning to communicate. I have also potty trained five children.

Childcare has been one of the most exciting, rewarding, and insightful experiences that I have engaged in during my 25 years. It has been exciting teaching the children new games and activities which bring laughter and learning together. Rewarding, in providing help for both the children and their parents, which creates trusting relationships and friendships. It has also been insightful in the sense that childcare has taught me more about myself and the beauty that surrounds this precious world.

My childcare experience comprises of babysitting the neighborhood children from the age of 12. My childcare experience continued when I was in high school working for a preschool that the principal owned/ran for high school credit while helping to teach the children. My childcare experience than continued with taking care of young family members, friends children and most currently my niece. She is now about 1-1/2 years old. I also have experience with being a mediator/childcare advocate as during a friends divorce I brought her 5 year old daughter to visit her father and supervised the visitation. My first concern is always for the child they they are healthy, happy and in a good learning environment. Although I may not have official nanny experience I can assure you that my experience with children is very thorough and engaging.
