Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…I am BLS CPR certified, and I have volunteered in a hospital setting for over 138 hours. I have been a summer camp counselor for 2 years for ages 6-18 y/o! I was previously a babysitter in high school on and off, and just graduated from UCLA. I love kids!!
Activities I enjoy doing with children…Going to the beach! Swimming! Hanging outside playing house, or in the grass. I have a lot of games that come to mind with being a camp counselor!
The most important part about being a nanny…Loving the child you work with. I have seen too many caregivers that aren't fully in it for the right reasons. I love to have fun, and be with kids! I am hoping to one day become an RN and I have experience in the hospital setting!
My experience with special needs children…I have done a summer camp for special needs where you are a direct caregiver called, Camp Recreation. I also volunteered with Special Needs as an aide for all ages for almost two years.
My favorite nanny moment…Oh my goodness, so this one was at camp. We had a camper who was in my cabin, and her name was Punkin. The campers get to pick their name during the week and this was her third one. She was so fun loving and kind.
