I'm a experienced nanny who ha over 7 years of experience with children and I love what I do. I've been working as a live-in nanny in Upper Saddle River/NJ but the family wont need me anymore since the grandmother will be living with them and taking care of their children. MY LAST DAY OF WORK WILL BE THE 21ST. I current take care of three children (2yo, 7yo, 9yo). They have a busy schedule so there is a lot of driving. I drive them to school and activities, I cook for them, do light housekeeping, take them to playdates, parks, museums, zos, theaters, etc. Its been a great experience. I've also worked for a family in Hackettstown for about a year taking care of a baby who was 6 months old. I had to feed him, gve hm bath, make his bottles, light housekeeping, take him for walks, etc. They also didnt need me anymore since they were able to get a spot at the army USA daycare which cost only $50. 00/year (yes, 50 dollars a year) because the parents both work for the Army. Before I move to USA I worked as a nanny for about four years back in my country and I also worked as a volunteer in a children hospital on sundays. In brazil I had experience with infants-13yo children and twins. Here I learned how to work with special needs and I can tell I learned pretty fast. I have many years of experience driving with a clean record, I have a valid driver license, I have a college degree and I speak two languages (portuguese and english) and i'm current learning other two (spanish and chinese/mandarim), I do practice a lot of sports and i'm very active, I do know how to swim since I was 4/5 years old and I don't smoke. I'm looking for a full time position which can be either live-out or live-in during the week/days of work. I do have wonderful references to provide, I have even a recommendation letter from my current boss that I can e-mail if you think you may be interested. I'm a very responsible, educated, kind, caring, fun and reliable person. I know im great with kids and i'm great on what do. I hope to hear form you soon :) Thank you, Giovanna
