Full-time hours

I have been working with children for 18 years. 13 of those years I’ve been a full-time nanny for children ranging in age from 2yrs old up to 13yrs old. I’ve also cared for a number of younger children on a part-time or as needed basis. I enjoy teaching and guiding children in areas needed whether it be just basic stimulation, to potty training, to reading and writing, and up from there. I am very creative in many ways that I interact with children. I love taking children out to teach them of the world around us either by a walk in the park and other children’s activities.

I was an au pair for a year for a family in Germany and currently live with a family with 3 children (9,7,3) for whom I babysit when mom needs a break. I am respectful and trustworthy and a truly good person who would like to become a part of a caring family for years to come. I also have a lot of patience and a great sense of humor. I come from a stable home and remain close to my family ( I encourage you to talk to my parents and brothers, as well as my refrences). I have always worked well with children (and grown-ups)because I like learning, asking questions and building relationships. Plus, I'm an awesome Silly Song Singer.
