I am currently a nanny for 3 children under 6 years old. I have been witht this family for 4 yrs and have enjoyed it.I was also a nanny for a three yr. old and a 10 month old. They decided to put them in a daycare so that they could interact more with other children. I worked in Arkansas for a six year old. While she was in school I would tidy up the house, wash dishes, run errands, and start cooking supper. I would pick her up from the bus stop and then we would do homework and then play for a while. I have been babysitting children for over 10 years. I truly love working with kids. I enjoy taking them to the library, parks, zoo, and museums. Kids are very smart and pick up on everything. I am a very happy go person, fun, patient, and energetic. I love laughing and meeting new people.
Additional information: I'm looking for a nice and loving family where the parents back you up on the decisions you have made unless they don't agree and then we should talk about it. I'm willing to clean up after the childen, cook their meals, and do light housekeeping. I'm here to look after and care for the kids first and foremost.
Candidate's challenges of position: Children are children, they are going to cry, act out, be silly, do things to see how far they can push you until you budge and that is something you have to deal with. I like to use timeout because I feel they work, but I would do what ever the parents thought would be better. I think it is challenging when the parents do not back you up and then they let the kids walk all over you and that is something I can not support.
Candidate's rewards of position: I find the things that make me proud, is when I can teach them something and I see them using or showing what I have taught them. Like with toddlers helping them walk, saying their a,b,c's, showing their manners, and anything else I see I have taught them. It shows me that I am doing my job.
