I’m a nanny because I have always had a natural gravitation towards children.
My past childcare experience My name is Ashley and I have been a Professional Nanny for five years now. Prior to being a Nanny, I spent some time in two separate child development centers as an assistant teacher. I am CPR/First Aid/AED certified along with Blood Borne Pathogen certified. I have also acquired several infant/toddler developmental certifications that I would be more than happy to provide. I stay current on the latest child care strategies by attending local conferences throughout the year. I am a certified My Smart Hands Instructor and am able to teach Sign Language to infants and toddlers. I made the transition to becoming a nanny because I have more one on one interaction with the children and truly get to know their individual personalities. I provide healthy and safe environment for children to be creative and feel free to express themselves. I believe it is important to praise good behavior and give positive reinforcement when a child makes good choices. Alternatively, I find it best to re-direct distributive behavior allowing the child focus on being positive. I believe in giving affection as it creates love, respect with trust between the child and caregiver. I also encourage independence to children to help them feel self-worth and respect. While working side by side with parents in the development of their children, I find open communication to be invaluable. Feeling comfortable sharing and discussing the child's daily progress is a must to ensure the best possible care. My other qualifications include the following: *My Smart Hands certified instructor (baby sign language) *Brain Development, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, and Abusive *Head Trauma: Shaken baby Syndrome *Infant and Toddler Social emotional Development *Routines and Environments that Support Social Emotional *Development in Infants and Toddlers *Understanding Infant and Toddler Development *Establishing Positive Relationships with Families *Ensuring the Health and Safety of Infants and Toddlers in Child Care Healthy Eaters *Responding to Challenging Infant Toddler Behavior.
