Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…I have worked in a nursery, grew up babysitting, have been apart of a middle school group staff, as well as High School. I have been a camp counselor for 6th grade science camp, middle school camp, and high school camp. I was a camp nanny, for staff kids, over several summers. Lastly, I have created and been in charge of two different moms groups. We met for playdates, as well as parent nights out!
Activities I enjoy doing with children…I love being outside! I love going on kid friendly hikes, swimming, visiting parks, and places like the zoo. Another favorite is reading children's books. I have so many favorites, I started a list to share with my families!
The most important part about being a nanny…Feeling apart of the family!
My experience with special needs children…One of our sons dealt with Sensory disorder, and auditory processing disorder. He spent many years in speech, and occupational therapy. Another of our kids dealt with ADHD. I have also watched a little one who was diagnosed autistic, at a very young age.
My favorite nanny moment…It's what we like to call the "ah-ha" moments. When you've been teaching a child something, and you end up seeing it pay off. You see the child, connect the dots, get so excited, and you feel the same. I love that. I also love bringing home artwork that was made for me!
