I have been a private nanny for eight years and have worked for four great families. While earning my degree in Early Childhood Education, I sought out my first job as a nanny and have not looked back. I truly enjoy my job because I get to work one-on-one with parents and their children. As part of my job, I assist with the children's daily schedules, pickup around the house or run household errands while children are at school/napping, prep and cook dinner for the entire family minimum 3 times a week and insist on the parents to take date nights frequently. Children are the number one priority in my job, but I am also here for you as a family as well. Below is just a short list of the daily things that I would do with the children and for the family: -Transport to school, play dates or other activities -Provide age appropriate educational games and tasks -Inspire children through art, music and sports -Guidance and encouragement through developmental stages -Cleaning child care related areas and light housework -Prepare/cook all meals for children and prep/cook dinner for family -Run errands for family -Manage 3rd party vendors
