I have over eighteen years of experience as a professional Nanny. By this point in my Nanny career I have worked with 3 day old newborn babies, on up to 12 year old pre-teens. I adore working with infants and toddlers, as it's so fun to get to help them learn, and watch the milestones in development, as they occur so quickly those first few years. I like to be very active with the children in my care, doing daily outings, going to the park, or swimming, to children's classes or museums and storytime. There are so many avenues to learning, and establishing comfortable schedules and routines, that I believe are integral to those first few years.

My experience in childcare began when I first reached an age my parents deemed old enough to stay home and care for my younger siblings. I am the second oldest in a family of seven so I have been babysitting and caring for my siblings for years. Around that same time I also began to babysit for families in my church. I cared for all ages from infants to 13 and up. Sometimes I was only caring for one child and other times I would be in charge of five children. A few summers back I was a live-out nanny for two children ages 9 and 11 just for the duration of the summer. I also helped nanny a family of five last summer. Besides just childcare I was in charge of transportation, laundry, cooking meals, feeding animals and pets, cleaning the house, and everything in between. I would be at the house before the children woke up in the morning and stay there until the parents arrived home later in the evening. Currently I am employed at a childcare center. The ages range from infants to kindergarten age and I have experience working with all ages there. Typically I am with one year olds but I have cared for all the other ages there as well.

My last child care experience was watching two children, a 7 year old and a 9 year old, every week day for the last two summers.I would go to their house around 7 am, the kids are usually still sleeping while I am there. When the kids wake up, I make them breakfast. After breakfast, I would help them pick out their outfits for the day or if they have swimming lessons/gymanstics help pack their bags for which ever sport. After taking them to their sport event, we would come back and do math and reading work. Every other day we would go to the library and get new books. They then would get a break and either play outside on their swingset or play downstairs in their basement. They had tons of toys, books, card games, etc. so every day was different. Then it would be lunch, so I would prepare lunch for them. After lunch depending on the weather we would go to the pool or park. Every Friday we would go do a special activity such as the zoo, movies, museums, etc. I would also watch them on the weekends from time to time when their parents wanted to go out. I really enjoyed working with the kids and sharing their summer with me.
