Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…I have worked long term with two families, both for over two years, ages ranging from 4 months to 11 years old. I am good at paying attention to the details of the home and children that may be different family to family.
Activities I enjoy doing with children…I love to do little art projects. My Nana was a teacher, and growing up she always had unique arts and crafts ideas. (always cleaning up after of course.) Kids have the best imagination, so usually it turns into a game of their creation. I give close attention, games, words of affirmation, books, if there is homework to be done, we can make that fun too believe it or not! Outdoors if allowed I love to take the kiddos to a park or on a walk, Holding hands and always safe practices.
I'm aware with children who've learned how to run, there will be games of tag in the yard or house if allowed!
The most important part about being a nanny…The most important part about being a nanny is to simply understand. Children think with emotion. I listen sympathetically, and am very good at helping kids to be healthy mentally, emotionally, and physically.
My favorite nanny moment…For one family, I made breakfast and lunch every day for kids, we would eat and talk about all the things going on in their mind and i Loved the little moments of talking while eating. Also I can't get over how many games of hide and seek I've played.
