I’m a nanny because Babies are my heartsong… being a nanny is the most joyful work I’ve ever done! I just love infants; they are so curious and loving, growing and changing all the time. My heart melts every time I see a baby. I specialize in infants because I delight in nurturing, caring for and playing with them; I enjoy weaving reading, music, language and imagination into our day.
My past childcare experience As a mom, nanny, home provider, step- and foster mother, I have participated in raising 37 children and have cared for 23 babies in their homes, day care and my home. I am educated in and have worked in early childhood development for 15 years, am a certified Newborn Specialist and certified in CPR and Infant First Aid. I have a reliable car and am a safe driver, a non-smoker, and am comfortable with light housekeeping. I can say confidently that I know the ages of children I most enjoy because I have worked with infants and children all my life. My 60+ early-childhood workshops and college courses have given me the background to track children’s milestones and create activities which engage them to their next levels of development by enriching and stimulating them to learn, sing, think, and love books. What fun!
Additional comments If you are interested, I teach baby sign; it is an outstanding bridge to speech. I also cook baby food and teach swimming. My daily journal is informative for parents, fun to read to your child in later years, and great for them when they have their own children. I also like to knit, sew, and mend if any of these would be helpful. My references will verify that I am warm, energetic, reliable and loving, and creative in my activities with children, ever mindful of current and emergent milestones. I look forward to getting to know you, and seeing if we are a good match!
