I have been babysitting for over 13 years and have nannied for 5 different families over the past 11 years. I have experience caring for boys and girls, from infants to age 14. I have degrees in music education and percussion and have experience teaching/interacting with children of all ages.
I am currently with a family in Utah working as a live-out nanny/household manager. They have 4 beautiful children, two boys and two girls, ages 9, 8, 5, and 2. I have been with them for 1 year and have enjoyed helping them keep their lives organized! I take care of the children, driving to/from activities, maintaining the house schedule, cleaning the house, laundry, and grocery shopping. In addition, I do whatever tasks are asked of me such as cooking or car maintenance!
A recent live-in nanny/household manager job outside of Philadelphia, PA was for a family with 3 elementary-aged children. I assisted the family with scheduling and organization, driving children to/from appointments and activities, meal preparation for the family, household laundry, family grocery shopping, and light housekeeping. I was always looking for tasks to ease the responsibilities of the parents!
During graduate school, I cared part-time for children of many ages. I babysat a family with 6-year old twins and an 8-year old before school (getting them ready and to the bus stop), watched a 2-year old boy and 4-year old girl for date nights or on afternoons (playing, reading, bed-time routine), cared for a 15-month old with Down syndrome twice a week and worked with her physical therapist, and some other families as well.
I have had two full-time summer nanny jobs with elementary-aged children. These jobs included a lot of meal preparation, driving to and from activities, setting up and supervising play dates, and encouraging both inside and outside play.
One family I consider myself a nanny for is a family I babysat occasionally for almost 5 years. It was never full-time, but I feel like I played an important role in the girls' lives (started at ages 1 and 4).
