Activities I enjoy doing with children…I'm super inventive when it comes to activities. I'm great at making up games on the fly and keeping kids engaged.
I'm really into craft projects, science projects, and I really love plant identification.
I'm also a patient tutor who is always up for reading, writing, math and science homework.
The most important part about being a nanny…Establishing a trusting relationship between child and parents is an important part of child care, and I think building that trust comes with taking the time to really get to know each individual child, not just their needs but their interests and motivations.
I believe in setting clear boundaries with kids and reinforcing those rules so that it's fun for everyone.
I think my favorite part of being a nanny is the opportunity to create fun, experiential ways for kids to explore their own world.
My experience with special needs children…+ I grew up in a household with a sibling with autism spectrum disorder
+ I have experience working with kids with ADHD and sensory processing disorders
My favorite nanny moment…I often think about a little boy named Max who would ask me to sing him to sleep and I felt so nervous about singing out loud and so I started to trail off, but he asked me to keep going and just so sweetly said the song was beautiful. Sooo precious.
