Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…I have volunteered at AYSO soccer park community and have helped special needed children play soccer games and I was in charge as referee. I made sure they knew their part throughout the game, held their hand while running, cheered them on, helped them kick, etc. I have also nannied a special care needed child where I was able to entertain him with arts and crafts, be able to read his facial expressions since there wasn’t much talking from the child, and I have also came to become very good friends with them:)
Activities I enjoy doing with children…I like to ride my roller blades with my brothers as they skate, arts and crafts, I like to take walks, teaching children basic early education, playing imagination games, painting pictures, playing dress up, and pretending to play a certain character and making a whole new world with children is enjoyable.
The most important part about being a nanny…The most important part to being a nanny is accompanying the children you are taking care of 24/7 because it is important that you are doing your required job. I also find it very important to keep the child happy at all times since they are basically a reflection of your work. Tidinesses is also another thing I like to keep track of and introduce to the children if they aren’t so neat.
My experience with special needs children…Children with special needs require extra attention and specific care. You cannot temper them or else they will continue to dislike you from there on out. You must make sure you acquire to their needs immediately.
My favorite nanny moment…A funny memory I have had was with this 6 year old girl who loved to bake. She wanted to make a milkshake and cookies for herself and we both forgot to put the lid over and ended up being showered with ice cream and milk. We both ended up laughing on the floor and tasting the ice cream dripping from our faces.
