Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…I am obtaining a psychology degree with a minor in child and family development. I have also been a professional nanny for two families.
Activities I enjoy doing with children…I love planning developmentally engaging activities for kids such as sensory bins, color sorting, discovery baskets, etc… I also like to get the kids outdoors as much as possible and let their imaginations run free!
The most important part about being a nanny…Being a nanny is so much more than being a babysitter. It is such a personal job that allows you to grow deep connections to not only the kids but the entire family. I think the most important part is helping kids realize how important they are and to grow their self esteem. I also think giving them mental tools to help develop emotional intelligence and independence is so important! They should also feel unconditionally loved and supported!
My favorite nanny moment…I love whenever the kids give me big squishy hugs.
