Hi! My name is Maggie. I'm an active and outgoing 28-year-old. I've been a nanny for 9 years and it has been a rewarding and exciting adventure so far. I have been a nanny for 5 different families with children ages newborn-5. I am currently in the search for a new family. The saddest part of my job: babies grow up, and I'm not needed anymore! I would consider myself to be a calm, patient, reliable, firm person while still allowing for silly fun, imaginative play, even organized chaos! I do believe in structure and routine. I believe those are amazing gifts you give yourself and your child. I strive to create a nurturing, stimulating and safe environment for your child so they can learn, experiment, and grow the way each child should! I will give you some insight as to what my day's look like as a nanny: I write daily logs, which include: Feeding times, changing times, naps, activities, medication, and any special notes for the parents. I prepare a healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the child(ren) with food provided by the parents. I strive to teach age appropriate developmental skills and fine motor skills. I ensure a proper nap/sleep schedule- since sleep is a very important factor in a child's day. I ensure household maintenance, which includes daily cleaning of living areas to provide a healthy and proper living space for the child(ren) and will do light laundry; children's laundry and household towels, kitchen towels, Etc. I run errands for the parents/ pick-up/drop-off at school and any other activities (little gym, swim, soccer, etc.) Weekly outings to museums, aquariums, library, park, etc. I ensure firm guidance and encourage speech and personality development All play-time is supervised and the child(ren) will never be left unattended. But I do encourage quiet/independent play for a small time during the day. I organize the schedule according to the parents request and follow all of the household rules. And most importantly, I will give your child nothing but the best care and all the love and attention children need and deserve. I am an extremely reliable and dependable person. I have a safe vehicle (2011 Honda pilot), with a clean driving record. I am CPR certified and highly experienced with newborns. I am looking for a family that needs someone full-time. Minimum of 40 hours, and I'm willing to work 50. My preference would be a family with younger children who could commit to a nanny for a min. of a year.
