I started my childcare experience by volunteering at my church in 2005. I volunteered in the nursery and toddler rooms for three years, and soon after the first year, I was hired on at a nanny agency. I worked for them from 2006 to 2009 as an on-call nanny. The ages varied from babies all the way up to the teen years. Then I moved to San Diego to help plant a church and started working as a full time nanny there for a few years until I returned back to MN where I was born and raised. I have 10+ years of experience altogether. I have a lot of experience with babies, toddlers, and elementary age children. I am very warm, relational, reliable, loyal, hardworking, conscientious, down to earth, trustworthy, patient, loving, creative, organized, clean, flexible, safe and fun. My favorite part about being a nanny is developing relationships with the children I give care to by providing wonderful learning experiences with books, music, crafts, and various indoor/outdoor activities. I love the developmental process of teaching by helping them learn/growth with each phase of life. I believe one way of doing that is finding out what the children are passionate about so to motivate them and enhance their gifts and abilities. It's a very rewarding experience for me! I am seeking an easy going, down to earth family who are great communicators. Please respond back if you believe I would be a great fit. I would love to hear from you!
