Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…I am an experienced teacher of the Reggio teaching style, I like to implement this knowledge into my childcare practice but have interests in Montessori as well! Overall though, I prefer the unschooling method when it comes to education. I love open ended play!
Activities I enjoy doing with children…As a bread baker, I love to teach through baking, arts and crafts, building, sensory play, quiet time to read and I also admire independent play to see how these little ones observe and use the world on their own :-) i love outdoor time too where we can take in the world around us and interact with new senses.
The most important part about being a nanny…I prioritize uplifting the child's preferred way of learning, and allowing them to lead me in their education. I also love to facilitate that enlightenment and gently help them along the way.
My favorite nanny moment…As a teacher, I remember my mornings being my favorite part of the day. I loved being able to gently enter the day with the child and set the mood for how the day will turn out! This showed me that having extended one on one time is what I prefer, as opposed to classes and high ratios of teachers to children. This was lovely time to get to know the kids before the day took off and got busy :-)
