Denise G. - Seeking Work in Valley Stream

Dear Mrs. I’m a trustworthy, reliable, energetic, fun and well organized woman who is seeking for long term position as a Nanny. I’m looking for a family who will utilize my current nanny skills and will allow me to bring positive influence to the home. I’m very dedicated to my duties and very friendly. I have eight to nine years experience as a Nanny and seventeen as an aunt, older sister and godmother. I worked in a day care teaching and taking care of children from ages one and a half to six years old. As a nanny, I have looked after babies and I have been responsible from caring two children age one and a newborn for six years. This job required me to care for both babies, to feed them at the right time, to play games, read books, lots of interaction and provide a safe and clean environment. As both children are now at school full-time, my job as a full-time Nanny has come to an end. I am currently working as a nanny for a eighteen month old baby girl five days a week, from 8am to 6:30pm for almost a year. Since her parents are soon going to enroll her into a daycare full time once again my job as a nanny will come to an end. I love children and enjoy working with them, taking my responsibilities very seriously. I assure you of my honesty and integrity. The children’s health and safety it's my number one priority. If you require any further information, please don't hesitate to contact me I look forward to speaking with you soon. I believe I have all the necessary skills and qualities that you need for your family. Sincerely, Denise P.S. CPR & First Aid certified. I am Fluent in English and Spanish.

I worked with a wonderful baby boy (since he was 3 mos.)and his family for over a year. We shared many exciting milestones. At the same time, I also worked with a little boy in the mornings before going to school. We worked on specific skills for his independence and bravery. We were quite sucessful. Prior to this I cared for a child from the time he was born until the family moved, just prior to his third birthday. Presently I've been working with two children in the mornings for seven years; ages 13 & 9. I wake them and get them ready for school. My late afternoons are spent with a 12 year old girl, also for the last seven years. I supervise all activities, feed and bathe and provide academic support.
