I’m a nanny because I love children and being around them. It is a passion of mine. I believe adults have a lot to learn from children, and they bring much joy to the world. I enjoy having the responsibility of taking care of children, and being the best I can be in order to meet whatever needs they may have. I wouldn't see this as a "job", but rather an experience for both me and the child. It is enjoyable to watch a child grow, learn, and develop, and therefore a privilege and honor to take part in this process with any child.
My past childcare experience In 2008 I worked at a child care center for the winter and early spring season in a toddler room, as a teacher's assistant. I helped with various learning activities, played and read with the children, helped with meal time, etc. This was a class of about 12 kids. In the summer of 2009 I worked at a child care center in Colorado and was one of two teachers in a classroom of fifteen 2 and 3 year olds. We made lesson plans, played and read, sang songs, had meal time, etc. In 2010 I again worked at the center in the toddler room. Just recently I visited a school in Haiti where we worked with the pre-schoolers and did various crafts and learning activities with them. I have also helped baby sit for various friends and family through-out my life since the age of around 16. My most recent job as a youth counselor for troubled high school aged youth has provided me with more skill/ability to connect with kids of all ages.
