Hi there! My name is Franny, nice to meet all of you. Just a little about me, I'm 24 years old, newly retired dental assistant working with kids, bookworm, gardener, painter and I'm a fibro warrior. I love working with children.
Although I do not have very much experience, I did work in the dental field helping kids of all ages get through procedures, including two and three year olds up to teens. I especially enjoyed working with kids with special needs as well, and interacting with infants.

I may not have the years of experience under my belt, but I do have some perks of my own. I am cpr certified, arts and crafts are my bread and butter, kids take to me very well, I do have a liscense and a vehicle, I'm very weary about the amount of tech time, so you can be sure with me that screen time will be limited. As a kid myself I struggled in school especially in reading, I understand first hand how frustrating it feels to be behind. I have a lot of patience, but I have even more patience to help the children get through assignments because I know that that's exactly what I needed to get through tough times elementary school.

When I first started working in pediatric dentistry, I was incredibly nervous since I hadn't worked with children before, however I found out it's my calling. I look forward to meeting you and caring for your family.

With nanny since date2 years with nanny

I am looking for 1 or 2 families who want to share my son’s nanny. I live in Cambrian Park, South San Jose, CA.

I have a six and half month-old son who is at the moment cared for by our amazing full time nanny. We are very happy with her, that's why we wanted to share her care with other kids too as well as and share the cost.

More about our nanny: She was a preschool teacher before starting employment with us with excellent references. She has been with us for the past 3 months and from our experience she is very competent in all-things-babies. Starting from making baby food, to playing with him, participating in development activities, encouraging him to crawl, doing baby's laundry etc, she takes care of all these and more.

I can share my experience in more details, and her curriculum she follows with my son if you're interested. Looking forward to hearing from some wonderful families :)
