I nannied a 8 month old little girl for the last 8 months. And before that I was a nanny to a set of twins, I was their nanny from the time they were 3 months old to 6 years old. One of the twins was medically fragile and needed constant care. With the need of constant care I accompanied the family to doctors appointments, administered medication and other medical treatments. Before that I was a nanny for two girls ages 18-month-old and a 4-year-old, I nannied the girls for 6 years. With all the children I have worked with I focused on their learning such as- art, basic education, cooking, and cleaning. While working for the families I also ran errands, cleaned, organized, cooked, and shopped for the house.
