Childcare Philosophies: I believe that no two children in this world are alike. While they share similar developmental milestones, temperament and dispositions are never the same. To nurture children requires creating a caring environment which gains a child’s trust starting in infancy and continues throughout childhood. As a nanny I have had the wonderful opportunity to develop trust and self-esteem in the children that I care for by creating an environment that is safe, having established routines and having clear consequences for behavior. Even the youngest infant quickly gains comfort in a simple routine of bathing, bottle, massage, story, and being put down to bed. In day-to-day interactions with children, it is my responsibility to model appropriate manners, social interactions, and good values. It is imperative to be knowledgeable of child developmental stages and foster age appropriate activities to promote furthering of physical, emotional, intellectual, and social development. Through play children are able to express their fears, act out every day scenarios, develop and practice social skills, use receptive and expressive language, and explore the world around them.

I am a friendly and energetic nanny with over 20 years of extensive full-time and part-time experience. I am motivated to help children become happy, healthy and well-behaved. I have devoted and reliable experienced in creating schedules, following through on commitments and maintaining routines. My major in college was Early Childhood Education grades Pre-K through 5th grade and dual certification in children with disabilities CPR/First aid certified and criminal background check available. I could not finish at Kean university due to cost. Although I have taken care of children for over 10 years, I decided that becoming a full time nanny would give me the same joy.
