I’m a nanny because I have been a nanny for 5 years, the last 3 spent with the same wonderful family. I love working with children and watching them blossom from newborns to smart, independent minded young individuals. I enjoy teaching and seeing them learn and figure out new things on a daily basis. It gives me a sense of achievement to see these young children become well-mannered and intelligent individuals as they grow. Being a nanny is fulfilling, more fulfilling than being in a classroom with 30 different children I cant give my undivided attention to. I’m a firm believer that it takes a village to raise children and I pride myself on being a big part of the tribe! Being a nanny gives me a sense of purpose, I don’t think of it as a job, more like a privilege to be in these little human’s lives!
My past childcare experience I have over 5 years of childcare, from children ranging from newborns to 13 year olds. Caring includes but not limited to diapering, tummy time, feeding, exercise, reading, playing and running outside at the park, swimming during the summer,snowmen and snow angels during the winter, play dates, various classes such as music and movement, gymnastics and dance, birthday parties, doctor visits, art projects, bathing, meal preps, daily walks, visits to the Norwalk Aquarium, Stepping Stones Children’s Museum and the Bronx Zoo. I’m a big stickler on manners and believe in teaching them early on, please, thank you and you’re welcome will always be used with me. I’ve come up with my own system of potty training that has so far worked on 3 children both girls and boys in a matter of months. I’ve mastered the art of juggling more than 1 child and their different nap schedules, sleep training doesn’t scare me! I have no problem managing more than 1 little rascal at different events and places, in fact I think it makes life a little more interesting.
Additional comments I know being a nanny is a "job" but I make it a point not to let the children think that they are just a paycheck to me, because they are anything but! When I leave for the day, I don't want there to be any dount in their minds that I will be back. I love and take of the kids as if they were my own. Being able to snuggle, hug and hold hands knowing I'm making their day better is what makes me happy.
