I have 6 years experience as a full-time nanny with two different families. With one family I was taking care of 3 amazing children ranging in ages, newborn to 5 years old, and with the second family I was taking care of 2 very adventurous boys, ages 7 & 9. I loved every minute of caring for all them. Going along with the regular daily routine, I tried to keep them as engaged & stimulated as possible by doing different activities both indoors & outdoors. I also enjoyed taking them to different places and seeing them experience new things, such as the library, the zoo, children's museum, different parks, and so on. I feel that growth and learning are important as well as a regular routine. I hope to find another family as wonderful as the two I've worked with before.
