Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…I volunteered at a summer camp for special needs children. I aided them in horseback riding and barn hand activities. I have also been a volunteer for church vacation bible school, being a group leader in the kids activities.
Activities I enjoy doing with children…Indoor I love to play barbies or legos, make playdoh, and do arts and crafts. Outdoor we play make believe and stay out as long as we can, we also have chalk drawing competitions on the driveway and go swimming at the local pool. The zoo is also a great way to spend the day!
The most important part about being a nanny…The most important part of being a nanny is keeping the environment stress free and enriching!
My experience with special needs children…As I previously stated I worked at a camp for special needs children, also my mother has always worked in special education so when my summer would begin before hers I would volunteer in her classroom with students who are blind, deaf, have autism, and other developmental delays. I enjoying workin with them one on one and trying to see things through their eyes.
My favorite nanny moment…The young boy I nanny for has difficulties reading and one night I actually got him to read one chapter of his book to me with no complaints or confusion! It was such and awesome moment for him and I to share and his parents were overjoyed with his success.
