Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…I have been babysitting for several years. I also frequently tutor children ages 7 to 17 and have been an after-school arts instructor.
Activities I enjoy doing with children…arts & crafts, make-believe, looking for cool rocks and insects, reading picture books, singing and dancing to music
The most important part about being a nanny…Patience, empathy, and respect! As a nanny, I view my purpose as providing a safe, positive environment for kids to learn, play, and grow as individuals.
My experience with special needs children…A few years ago, I volunteered regularly for a recurring community play-time event for special needs children. This involved playing with the children, socializing them, and mediating conflict.
My favorite nanny moment…When I accidentally matched Batman t-shirts with the 3-year-old I was sitting -- we were excited to learn the other was a fan!
