Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…Last 3.5 years worked as full time nanny for 2 children; a 9 yr old boy, and a 12 yr old girl. I have regularly baby-sat with several children over the years, and can offer those references, as well, per request. I raised two (now grown) sons as a stay-at-home mom. During all their elementary years, I was in charge of 20+ children, every morning before school. I also volunteered in several classrooms for reading time every afternoon.
The most important part about being a nanny…I believe the most important part of being a nanny is the relationship you develop with the children. They become so important in your life and you in theirs. I believe that relationship is lifetime. Quote on raising children that says ‘It takes a village’ is absolutely true!
My favorite nanny moment…When I pick up the kids, 12 and 9, in the afternoon, we are hurrying to get to our scheduled sports and horse-riding events, but it’s special time for all of us. We have so much fun just laughing with each other. Acting silly. Singing loudly together. Telling funny stories. Talking about our day(s). It’s the highlight of my day, every day and I believe it’s theirs, as well!
