I’m a nanny because Additional source of income.
My past childcare experience I was employed for 5+ years in various positions at a large childcare center: Assistant Director, Lead Teacher from infants to 12 years,Health and Safety Coordinator,Van Driver, and also served as the cook when necessary. I have been a single working parent of one daughter, now 24, since she was 4 and have had many challenges working with special needs. I am a WSI certified swim instructor and have been teaching children's swim lessons for 1-1/2 yrs. I am also a Red Cross certified instructor of CPR/AED/First Aid. I am currently employed at a Human Services agency and work with families of children receiving mental health services.
Additional comments I am an active member and volunteer with my local chapter of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). I am certified to teach 3 of their education courses - two are for parents/caregivers of children and adolescents with brain disorders. I am also certified as a support group facilitator. I have gained more empathy and patience through this work and my own experiences.
