Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…I recently started working as a private nanny for a local family, and while I love the job and kids unfortunately this particular position isn't a fit for me.
I worked as a teachers aide at a YMCA Child Development Center for a little over 9 months and loved every minute spent the kids. I have experience and am comfortable with children of all ages, as young as 6 weeks.
Activities I enjoy doing with children…I grew up in the country and love hands-on outdoors activities! If there is a park nearby we will definitely be visiting on nice days, looking for insects and hidden treasure. My favorite indoor activity has always been story time, nothing beats hearing a good book right before going down for a nap.
The most important part about being a nanny…Forming a bond with the child/ren, allowing them to trust and not only see me as a figure of authority, but one of comfort and homeliness.
My experience with special needs children…Children ages 7+ with autism
My favorite nanny moment…“Miss Kimberly, why do you have polka dots on your face?” (referring to my acne)
