I’m a nanny because I love being around children and fostering their need to grow through play and learning. I believe that children are truly the foundation to our futures and love being apart of the experience in nurturing and raising them.
My past childcare experience I have been working with and caring for children since I was 14 as a job; but not only have I been a babysitter and nanny, I have helped care for my younger siblings. There are 7 years between my brother & I and 8 1/2 between my sister & I. With such an age difference growing up with them fostered a different role in the sibling dynamics of our family. Every move I made was watched, as I set the best example possible to be an amazing role model to their growing minds. In my 12 years of working with children I have learned to adapt to each child, as every child is different. I have experience working with kids anywhere from newborns to Pre-Teens, and up to 4 children at a time. I worked with one family from the age of 14 to 21, of which 3 years I spent as their sitter and 4 years as their nanny. I have also worked with other families, both relatives and not, throughout the years.
Additional comments I have always been told that I work wonderfully with children even from a young age; some just have the natural maternal instinct from a younger age. Watching a child learn and grow is one of the most outstanding things you can witness. They become sponges from an early age and their minds are ever expanding. I believe that when working with children you must be patient, enthusiastic, energetic, kind, and caring. As for discipline, I believe that you must be on their level and make sure they understand what they are being corrected on. Yelling does not help most situations, it only causes chaos. Also I am available to relocate to most any location, and am willing to travel with families.
