I have been a nanny for seven year,but my last job was by far my favourite,I took care of two little girls Stella who would be two in September and Ruby who is five.I worked full time with these two girls and spent a lot of time with them,and they became very dear to me. I had the full trust and confidence of their parents who accepted me as an extension of themselver where their girls were concern .They knew by the way the girls related to me that I loved them unconditionally and treated them as I knew their parents would. I took the girls to the park,we spent time at the library,Itook them to play dates and birthday parties.we read together coloured books and went for walks.I did laundry for the kids and some light housekeeping.It was very hard for me when I left. Sadly the mom lost her job and was unable to keep me on.We are still in contact ,and they have been helping me to find new employ,they are avalible as references for me at your request.

my past childcare experience was taking care of my cousins, aged 2 and 5. stayed with them for about 3 years. was in charge of taking them to school and bringing them back home, took them to any occasion that they needed to attend, made sure they did their home work and got to bed in the expected time.etc. they were kind of strong headed towards me at first though but love prevailed. it was fun being with them and watching them grow and i was able to add positively into their life's.

I believe that providing a warm and safe environment encourages each child to develop in their own unique way. I am a cheerful and nurturing person with a good sense of humor and I feel education can be engaging and play can be educational. Being a mother of two grown up children I have the innate ability to understand the child's needs, moods and interests. I work hard to communicate with the parents and follow instructions closely. I am a positive and energetic person with excellent communication skills who sincerely enjoys being a nanny. I have been a nanny/governess for 10 years. I am certified in First Aid and CPR for Adult, Children and Infants. I graduated from High School in Beechhurst NY. I have a Certificate of Proficiency in English from the University of Michigan - English language Institute and a BS in Business Administration and Economics from the University of La Verne California Athens campus. I look forward to hearing from you and welcome the opportunity for an interview.
