I’m a nanny because . I love working with kids and I feel that it is very important for every child to have somebody they know loves them, that they can trust and look up to as a very respected role model, mentor besides Mom and Dad. No I can't accomplish that for every child, but I know I do everything I can for each and every child I work with.I want to have my children learn with other children.
My past childcare experience I’ve been around kids my whole life. I am 23 years old. I have been a nanny for about 5 years off and on for 6 different families with children ages 3 months to 7 years old. For my last family I worked at least 55 hours a week, they had 3 boys ages 11 months, three, and six years old. I was with that family for about a year and a half. I spent a lot of time helping my cousin who had two sets of multiples, and I take care of my nephew all the time. I grew up with my adopted mother running an in home daycare. I was a mother’s helper; I started babysitting when I was 10. At 11 I worked in the church nursery and with the Sunday school. I was there for about 5 years and in that time I worked with ages 1 to 14. I have worked with children who had special needs or who developed slower and different from most children. When I moved to a new church, I worked in the nursery in the toddler room for 4 1/2 years. I started coaching gymnastics for kids ages 2-9 where we would actually go to different schools, set up the equipment and teach for 1 hour. I have been junior camp counselor for a number school aged kids. I can help with homework, cook and I can help make sure children understand what they are learning; I love arts and crafts, and holiday projects. I always have ideas for fun activities that work on early childhood development like counting, alphabets, shapes, colors, animals, etc. I’ve made hundreds of crafts with all ages. I love taking kids outside on fun outings anywhere, nature walks, or going to the park and just enjoying the fresh air. I have 4 nieces and nephews ages 2 to 8. I have 2 children that are 1 and almost 4.
