I’m a nanny because I absolutely adore my work with children. Parenting, in my opinion, is the most important job in the world. Childcare is a close second. I have fond memories of the many people who raised me outside of my immediate family. Through my work, I hope to instill a similar feeling of trust, security and inspiration in those children that I care for.
My past childcare experience DEAR PARENTS, I am 32 years old and I’m CPR and First Aid Certified. Therefore I am recently just finished Nursing at Truman College and currently working on my BSN. I would like to pursue as specialize in Pediatric nursing and that leaves me comfortable with children of all ages including infants, twins and multiples. THOUGHTS ON CHILDCARE For children, opportunities for discovery are everywhere. Actively engaging them with their surroundings allows them a better understanding of their own, growing perspective. I am invested in being a trusted friend and helping children to positively engage their own minds, bodies and feelings. I am receptive to a child’s needs and will respond to them without overpowering their creative thinking or taking the reigns. I feel that play is a child’s job, and my job is to help them develop that play with confidence, offering gentle insight and guidance where needed. I have a holistically minded philosophy when it comes to care. Children are a whole person, and I treat them as such. They are smart and receptive, often hearing and learning more than we realize. Environment, therefore, is critical. Stress on a child can yield a subtle, but destructive impact, creating a sense of unrest and often insinuating so-called “behavioral issues”. Placing children in a playful, positive, encouraging, creative, mindful environment is a number-one priority of mine. I am not a fan of television and I do not like to sit children in front of one for the sake of a break. Instead, I promote creative play, encouraging children to be self-imaginative, and pre-made games to keep oneself busy. I enjoy going outside for walks and making up stories and songs. It behooves me to let children lead the play, without being prompted by the questionable agenda of a mass-produced, battery-operated toy. I seek age-appropriate ways to safely engage children in everyday adult activities like baking, cooking, gardening, recycling and cleaning up.I find that activities like this provide children with an immense feeling of accomplishment, helping to build self-esteem.
