I am DEPENDABLE, CONSCENTIOUS,ORGANIZED,PRO-ACTIVE, STRONG WORK ETHIC, LOVING,GENTLE,PATIENT, CREATIVE, AND PROFESSIONAL. Every child that has been in my care as nanny, has been such a joy to cherish and see grow. I have 10 years working as a nanny to professional parents working outside of the home. During that time I have worked with parents in areas of feeding, routines, developmental charting. As their children have moved through infancy and toddler-hood into their preschool years, I have shifted my attention to more in-depth activity plans as they demand more challenging games, toys, and projects. I truly believe that Communication is the key to a good parent-nanny working relationship. Providing clear commication helps to establish seamless transtions for a child. From sleep schedules, feeding routines and decipline. Making sure in all aspects of learning to respect, value and celebrate a child's individuality. I am seeking a nanny position in which I can support and facilitate a family's values and parenting philosophy. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration in your search for quality INFANT/toddler care.

I've been caring for children as long as I can remember. I have two younger siblings, brother and sister, who are now 11 and 14. As early as 9-10 years old I was helping to raise them. Their mother was not much of a parent. Therefore, much of the care giving fell onto my older sisters (year older than I) and my self. All throughout junior high and high school, I babysat for a number of families. I graduated high school in 2011 at the age of 16. That summer, I took a 6 week nanny position caring for two small children (ages 1 and 2 - boy and girl). I cared for them 40 hours during the work week and a few hours on the weekends. Those two children really brightened my days and I was very sad to see them move to London after the six weeks were over. I myself have no children, but I am the proud God Mother of two beautiful little boys. I was very close with both of the mothers through their pregnancies and remain close with them and their families today. I absolutely adore children.

I love working with kids of all ages but my favorite age to work with are infants through kindergarten. I love spending time with the children outside doing such things as playing sports, swimming and sidewalk chalk when the weather permits.

I am currently working part-time at xx daycare. I generally care for kids who are between the ages of 2 and 5 but I am comfortable with pretty much any age. I enjoy reading to kids, playing games, doing arts and crafts, and singing songs with them. In the past I have babysat for a family who were friends of my father pretty regularly. They were 2 girls who were 1 and 3 when I met them and a little boy who was 7. I watched them for about 2 years. I also used to babysit my best friends little brother when he was really young. I'm comfortable preparing meals that are needed and I am good with animals as well. I do have a slight allergy to cats but I am perfectly okay being around them or feeding them. I just can't play with them unfortunately.

I've had years of experience caring for my four nieces and nephews throughout their lifetimes. The oldest is currently 13 and the youngest is 5. I was a full-time nanny to them over the summer, and I also help babysit over the school year. In addition, I've babysat for many other different families with children of all ages. Caring for children is by far the most enjoyable job I've had.
