Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…Public Children’s Library Volunteer (Summer), Summer Theater Camp Volunteer, Boys & Girls Club Volunteer, Performing Arts Workshop Aide, Volunteer for Daycare (Children with Special Needs and Exceptionalities), Beginner Singing & Piano Instructor for children
Activities I enjoy doing with children…Arts & Crafts, Baking, Dance Parties, Cooking, Singing and playing instruments, playing pretend and with dolls, finding new adventures and playing outside or going on walks!
The most important part about being a nanny…keeping the child safe, happy and healthy :)
My experience with special needs children…I have over 5 years of experience with children and adults with special needs including children on the autism spectrum (from high functioning to severe), down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and neurological disorders NOS.
My favorite nanny moment…One of my clients’ children yelled at me from the bathroom after he ran away saying he had to go potty. He had an accident all over the bathroom floor and when I got to the door, he quietly said to me “Sorry, I couldn’t make it to the potty.” Poor thing felt so bad and started crying but I laughed it off and said it’s okay, when you gotta go, you gotta go!
