Full-time hours

Hello! My name is Samantha. I am looking for a long-term/full-time position. I am looking for a family who is maybe just starting their family, who has a newborn or young infant/toddler, and they are looking for someone who will grow with their family and stay with them long term. I have over 10 years of experience working in the childcare field, 4 years of being a professional full-time nanny. I have worked for two great families. My last position, I was a nanny for infant triplets full time, so I do have excellent experience with multiples. I started with them when they were 3 weeks old and ended in fall 2014, when they were 8 months old. My position with them ended due to the family relocating. Besides being a full-time nanny, I have also worked at a child care center as a lead infant/toddler teacher for 6 weeks to 24-month-olds. I have a lot of experience with infant/toddler feeding and nap schedules, and getting them on a good routine if mom and dad need help with that. I also know a lot about their development and celebrating big milestones. I have three years of education towards my bachelor's degree in child development, as well as numerous training courses. My ultimate goal is to provide a safe and secure environment for the children and make life easier for mom and dad. I love to be active with the kids and go on fun adventures to the park and beach or even just taking walks around the neighborhood. I am an animal lover and do not mind taking care of the family pets as well. I am a non-smoker with a clean driving record and my own vehicle. My background check, driving abstract and references are available upon request.
