For the past four and half years I have been the nanny of two wonderful little girls, age 7 and 5. As of the fall they will both be attending school full time, so I will no longer be needed. Sadly I must find a new family, however I am excited for a new adventure! During my time with the family I have watched up to four children at a time and I have been a trusted sitter for their friends. I preformed many duties for the family that include but are not limited to: Grocery shopping, laundry, housekeeping, cooked every meal including dinner, errands, bathing children, homeschooling (both girls learned to read and write at an early age), transportation to all camps, classes and activities, organized play date, and many more. We do lots of crafts, games, outside adventures and we go many places like the zoo and kids museums. I have cared and loved these girls as if they were family and I hope to have the chance to do that again. I believe that a child should learn through love and compassion about how to be responsible and compassionate themselves. I hold the children responsible for all positive and negative behavior with the appropriate rewards and consequences. I believe that the best way to achieve this is through constant practice, structure and keeping a routine. I look forward to working with you and your parenting style to help your child grow and develop into a beautiful young person!
