Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…- I was a swim instructor for several years, babysat for 8 years, lived with a family abroad (with two young children) this past summer, and volunteered at Special Olympics events with children
Activities I enjoy doing with children…Hiking, running, biking, art projects, environmental science experiments, piano, and baking/cooking.
The most important part about being a nanny…Nurturing children by making sure to validate their emotions. It is essential to provide them with the tools to be the best version of themselves, while also learning to respect and care for others.
My experience with special needs children…I volunteered with Special Olympics for 3 years, working with a range of children with physical and intellectual disabilities.
My favorite nanny moment…My favorite nanny moment has always been taking children to a zoo/aquarium. Allowing kids to unlock their natural curiosity is always so fun to see! Anytime we came home from the zoo they would have so many questions and things to talk about. It was always a blast researching different animals and countries; it is truly a great way to promote interactive learning.
