Mary G. - Seeking Work in Burke

Full-time hours

I started my first full time nanny position with a ten month old boy who has CF. I took care of him for fourteen months as his full time nanny. Next I was a full time nanny to very active twin girls age two. I taught them to speak English and potty trained them. My next full time nanny job was for premature twin babies age three months. In between full time positions I babysit for children on an ongoing weekly basis. I love taking care of young children and spend a lot of time teaching them through activities that are age appropriate. I read to the children I care for rather than turning on the TV. I usually have a schedule and we go out to play or for a walk weather permitting. I would just like to add that I cook very healthy meals and keep a very tidy kitchen. Also I do help with the children's laundry and try and keep play area and nursery picked up!

Over the years I have had an extensive amount of experience working with children. I ran my own babysitting circuit from age 12 until I graduated high school and during my college years, I worked as a nanny for four different families over my summers. While working with them I took care of seven children ranging from ages 2 months to 15 years, both boys and girls. I also had the opportunity to look after twins. Through my experience I have learned how to discipline while still be a good friend to the children I am watching. I enjoy doing hands on activities with the children, which include a wide range of crafts, games, and outdoor activities. With my tutoring experience I am also there to help with studies the children may need to complete!

I have been a nanny for 12 years. My first job was working at a home daycare where took care of kids from the age of babies to 6 years old. There were around 12 kids and I also taught them spanish. My second job was working as a nanny for a family with 2 kids. I worked with them for 4 years. My 3rd job I also worked for 2 kids for 2 years. I worked there for 2 days a week. I worked for another family who had baby twins for 2 years and I occasionally babysit for them. I am now working for a family with 2 kids and it has been a year. Since the kids are going to school most of the day I am now looking for a full time job.
