For almost 5 yrs now, I've been a full time Nanny, working for a wonderful family. This job started out with a 4.5 month old baby girl. Two years ago, the family welcomed twin boys. For 2 yrs, I was a part time Nanny for a family who had an adopted 3 yr old girl. At the same time, I worked full time as a preschool teacher and teachers assistant for a state funded program. Prior to this, I worked in a non-profit hospital childcare center as a classroom aide. During these years from 2000 to current, I have worked with children with learning disabilities, normal learning children and also high risk infants and multiple births. I have worked closely with mothers regarding the care of their children, ranging from high risk preemies to preparing children for kindergarten. I have an AA in Early Childhood Education and I understand and implement age appropriate learning. I use the PIES approach in how I teach children. PIES meaning, Physical, Intellectual, Emotional and Social. I believe that play is how a child learns and I have frequent opportunities for a child to express and develop their creative talents thru art. Outdoor play is essential and weather permitting, I encourage it daily. I've even been known to put on our rain gear and go for a walk in the rain. Music is part of our world and I focus on teaching the songs that will help prepare children for kindergarten. They are fun and sometimes silly but, always a means for learning. As a full time Nanny, I've been responsible for the children's meals and keeping their laundry washed also. Their bedrooms and playroom has been my job to keep tidy also. In all these "chores" I have worked with the children in making them their "chores" as well. I've also had the opportunity to make life a bit easier for the family in doing other "chores" such as their laundry and dishes. I've been a bit of a household manager in coordinating life with 3 kiddos while housecleaners are there or construction men are painting or taking in the delivery of packages. I also arrange play times with the neighborhood children for the little girl who is 5. Working with young children is my passion. Having a great parental team to work with has been a huge plus for me. Accompanying the Mom to various doctor appointments, I've worked closely with her on medical needs for the children, ranging from giving timely doses of Advil to a teething little one to regular breathing treatments due to asthma. I hope you have enjoyed reading this. If you have any questions, please send a message my way and I'll be sure to answer any questions you might have.

I have plenty of experience working with children. As an older sibling, I have grown up taking care of my younger sisters. Throughout high school I interned at an elementary school in a first grade classroom. Through this experience I was able to work with children of all types, teaching math lessons and helping them perfect their reading skills. I have a certain passion when it comes to working with children and I am told that I do it very well. I'll teach, play, laugh and learn right along with them. In addition, last summer I nannied for an 18-month old little girl and absolutely loved it. I enjoyed getting her dressed each morning, doing her hair and taking her to the park or to get ice cream! Even watching her at the beach so her parents could have some time alone stress-free! I am currently a nanny for four kids ages 6,8, 11, and 13, and absolutely love it however I would like to find a nanny position during school to keep my occupied and provide me with that home away from home feeling. Overall my experience with childcare has been great. Any other questions feel free to ask!

My whole life has revolved around children in one way or another. I do not have children of my own, but I absolutely adore them. I work in child care at my church, watching over children ranging from infants through 7 years old. I cared for my half-sister's 2-year-old boy for the whole summer a few years ago on a daily basis. Whether cuddling, changing diapers, potty training, helping with homework, or playing sports outside, I have experience with it all! I have spent 2 years serving at a program called AWANA, where I have grown so close to many kids and love being around them. I have also worked with older children the past few years. I tutored a young girl with Down syndrome. As I taught her, I learned so much myself. I also tutored her brother. They were both teenagers around the ages of 15.

when I was a teen, during the Summer mo. I had live-in jobs caring for multipal children while their parents worked and numerous other date-night babysitting jobs. After I married and started my family of 3 children then I took courses to become a licensed daycare provider in my home. I did this for 2 years until I was able to work outside of the home in a different field. During this time I had 3 more children for a total of 6. My family has grown giving me 9 grandchildren. Being a grandma is such a joy! I recently cared for my youngest grandson in my home from birth to 3 yrs. while my son and daughter-in-law worked. Since my grandson is enrolled in monisory school near his home in Tacoma I no longer have the pleasure of his company on a daily basis. I miss having the little ones run around the house.

I have watched over many children within the past five years ranging from ages one-ten. I absolutely adore children so getting a job to watch kids is ideal. I had a summer job at a daycare watching kids everyday for most of the day. The job involved lots of cleaning up after the kids, playing with them, and most importantly building a relationship with them. To be specific with ages, I have worked with a 14month old one-on-one, a 7month old boy and his 4year old sister (I have developed tremendous skills to juggle two energetic kids at once), a 10year old and his 3year old sister, an 11year old boy (I babysat and tutored), and another 4year old and 11year old together.
