I’m a nanny because I have babysat since the 1970s and after my first try at college I became a Nanny in 1987. I love children and helping them learn through playing.
My past childcare experience I have written home based educational curriculum, home schooled, cut out 100 green 4 leaf clovers, played Barbie for hours on end, ate with pirates (they do not eat politely and burp as often as possible), ridden a camel in a book, been a camel in a book, made up stories, arranged play dates, answered doorbells, directed repairmen while escaping from the evil Prince Pain in the Broccoli and his mighty sidekick Princess Kitchen, held court with dignitaries of fairies, witnessed science at the sidewalk level, explained away Cinderella's evil step-family, softened The Phantom of the Opera's hard edges, sang opera, played on a jungle named Jim, read (almost) every book available at story time, driven race cars and chariots, and I have flown without ever leaving the ground .... What did you do today? :)
Additional comments I grew up on a farm so my first pets were BIG. I have also owned chinchillas and rats. I once owned and operated a pet sitting service. In families I have nannied for I have cared for tiny dogs, English Mastiffs, fish, rabbits, hamsters, and a schipperke as part of my job description. I was until recently the weekend horse help at an organic farm. I am also fond of rodents (guinea pigs, fancy rats, etc) but NOT snakes or lizards.
