Nancy H. - Seeking Work in Stafford

14.28 / hour

Most recently I worked for a family for 3+ years; their two children were 6 mos and 3 yrs old when I started. I truly believe we enhance our children's abilities to learn and grow through the daily activities and learning experiences we provide for them. I introduced these children to Library programs and reading; participated with them in Gymboree programs, nature programs and swimming. I also provided transportation for rec center activities/programs they were registered for. We spent much time outdoors when weather permitted, going to local parks for walks, hikes, picnics and playground time. I teach about nature (work weekends for a state park) that is age appropriate introducing them to all facets of nature. I believe in a child being given time for imaginary play so encouraged making up of stories, singing silly songs, and participating in make believe adventures. I have raised five children of my own, and currently have two granddaughters so am well experienced in parenting and guiding children through the different developmental stages. I am also a certified Bradley childbirth educator teaching expectant parents and have worked as both a birth and postpartum doula, guiding expectant parents into parenthood. My past experience also includes teaching a xx Camp program and similar program for pre-school aged children for xx. I am a former EMT-A, CPR and First Aid Instructor and have current CPR and FA training. You can be assurred that your child will be well cared for and that I know what care to provide in the event of an emergency.

I was raised in a family of nine children (four being younger than myself). I raised my twin younger sisters from infancy until ages ten, on my own, as our parents weren't in the picture and so I am fully capable of watching multiple children while keeping the house in order and cooking if need be. I have been babysitting for neighbors as a side job for the past five years as well.

I have been taking care of children since I was 12. By myself and with others. I have taken care of infants up to teenagers. There has been many different families over the years I have watched on weekends. For the past few months I have been a nanny for two different families, because one family only needed me for a short time. I am currently still caring for one family of three children. I Work Monday-Thursday for them. I can care for another families children at the children's home (where I live during the week). On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays I can work day or night at your home. 7:00 p.m. or later I can come to your home on Monday-Thursday. Before that time your children can come to me.

I've been taking care of children for about 5 years now. I took a childcare class in highschool which also made me a teacher as well. I did that for 2 years straight and that's where the love of taking care of kids became something huge to me. I continued to take care of children working at xx. I was an assistant teacher for the infants/todflers. I learned so much being a teacher at a daycare. Making lesson plans weekly and having the childreb engage in physical/social activities were fun! I treated each child as they were my own and formed close bonds with the parents. Probably my best jobs I've ever had in my entire life. Kids bring me joy everyday!
