I’m a nanny because I love being able to dedicate my time to helping children grow and learn. I believe that children need strong role models in their lives to grow into well-rounded, productive adults. Additionally, I think it is important for kids to have several adults in their lives that they can count on and go to for anything that they need. Lastly, I just really love children and enjoy being around them because they always keep life fun and interesting.
My past childcare experience I began babysitting at age 12 for families in my neighborhood and for my younger cousins. I spent two summers as a nanny for my two younger cousins who were 6 and 9 at the time. My responsibilities included making meals, doing light household chores, driving the kids to playdates, setting up playdates, and more. After that, I worked at the Childcare Center for 2 years working mostly with the two to four year olds. My responsibilities included helping to maintain the safety of the children as well as helping to implement the curriculum written by the classroom teacher. After that, I spent nearly three years as a nanny for a family with two girls, ages 7 and 13 when I began. My responsibilities included bringing the girls to activities, helping them with homework, setting up play dates for the younger girl, as well as some light household work. I was a part time nanny working about 25 hours during the school year and 40-50 hours in the summer. Additionally, I have also worked in a high school for the past three years, working with students with the special education label of emotional/behavioral disorders. I work with students ages 14-21.
Additional comments In addition to my experience, I also took several courses at St. Thomas in child, adolescent, and family psychology and sociology. I also took several health classes and was CPR and first aid certified in college. I would be willing to get re-certified if necessary. I am also a certified health education specialist and am certified in non-violent crisis intervention.
