Full-time hours

I have a little over 17 years of professional child care experience. I also have 10 nieces and nephews, so I'm tested (and tested and re-tested) and resoundingly kid-approved. I have experience caring for children of all ages, from infant to young teens. I am CPR and First Aid certified, with a good head on my shoulders. I am patient, competent, creative, kind, intelligent, and take my occupation to heart. I love to sing, read and do arts and crafts with kids. I enjoy taking field trips with children to museums, aquarium, libraries, and various play spaces. In nicer weather, I prefer to spend as much time as possible outdoors, exploring the parks and any other fresh air venue that NYC has to offer. In the past, I have worked in Park Slope, Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill, Ft. Greene/Clinton Hill, and Red Hook, as well as in Staten Island, and am familiar with all of these neighborhoods and the extracurricular activities and opportunities for enrichment available to children in the area. I have also made regular trips into the city for events and classes, and am comfortable both driving and navigating public transportation.

I have over six years of childcare experience now, four of them being a nanny. Before I decided to become a nanny I worked for two schools being head teacher for both classes after that I worked for a daycare for almost 2 years, My title was daycare provider/assistant. While working at the daycare I decided todo part time nanny jobs and weekend nanny jobs so I had a few short term nanny jobs during that time. After being one on one with children and parents it made me realize being a nanny is what I wanted todo full time. I decided to become a nanny in 2013 and it was the best choice I've ever made. My first real nanny job I worked with 3 children full time, The children were aged 1,2,&3 when I started. I handled everything from cooking breakfast,lunch,dinner & any snacks. I got all the children dressed and fed and had the oldest ready for school by 745, I arrived everyday at 6:50am. While the oldest went to school until 4pm, I had both girls all day. I did activities such as coloring and book time and work time consisted of writing and singing the numbers and letters. I brought the kids to the park and libraries even the beach and pool during the summer. I traveled with the family pretty much everywhere, I also went to parent teacher conference for the oldest. I cared for their dog and was available at any time they needed me! I was apart of their family and I wish to have another job similar to this.
