Hi! I'm Samantha. I'm a loving, playful, experienced nanny who wants very much to help give your child(ren) the full love and care they need, physically, mentally and emotionally, so that they can be happy, healthy and successful individuals. For 2 years before college, I worked as a mother's helper and babysitter for 2 families, the children ranging in age from 3 weeks to 9 years. I nurtured them physically, emotionally and mentally through providing meals and snacks, baths and dressing, diaper changing, indoor and outdoor play, music and art time and help with homework. I also did numerous housekeeping tasks. I recently worked as a teacher at an early learning center for 3 years, working with children ages 6 months to 5 years. I provided full physical care and taught baby signs, starting Spanish, beginning math, reading and writing skills, motor skills, art, music, science, nature, shapes and colors. I also taught manners and respectful peer interaction. I'm a loving, cheerful, hands-on caregiver and love to teach children about birds and animals, nature and music. I'm a big believer in helping children build up their imaginations and its importance in their lives. I believe in reading with them everyday to promote good cognitive and speech development. I believe in letting them discover art and their personal creativity by letting them enjoy the process rather than focusing on the outcome. And I believe in fostering childrens' independence and teaching them about diversity, kindness and empathy toward others. I hope that you will consider me in your search for a nanny! Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you might have. I look forward very much to hearing from you and providing care for your child(ren)!

I am a stay at home mom of four kiddos, two of which are school age, and 1 in headstart so its just me and my two year old most of the day. I have lots of experience with children since my oldest is 13 and I have been babysitting most my life. I babysat a 1 year old girl for almost a year and then a 2 year old boy for several months full time, but now only on a need be basis. I also have a couple other children I babysit on a need be basis ages ranging king from 6 months to 5 years. So I have excellent references and I am available to start right away. I am looking for 1 child, maybe 2. I am open to all ages, I charge very reasonable rates and will work with your budget. I am available most anytime and am very flexible. Since I have kiddos of my own I prefer to provide the care out of my home. We have a big back yard to run and play and plenty of room for another little one. Plus a play mate for my two little ones is another reason I enjoy doing it. Let me know if you'd like to meet.
