I’m a nanny because I would love to be a nanny because I think it is so important for children to have someone they can count on. I love being around kids and I've learned quickly that kids need routine and they need someone who can be there for them in so many different aspects. I could not imagine a better job then to be able to look after children and help out a family. It is not easy to raise a family, and being able to lend that helping hand is something that I love.
My past childcare experience Hello, my name is Emily and I am 20 years old. I am a junior in college and studying Speech Language and Hearing Sciences. I plan on getting a doctorate in Audiology. I am one of eight children so I am very comfortable with children. I also have two dogs at home, so pets are not a problem. I spent last summer working at a seven week summer camp for children with disabilities. The children I worked with had been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and Spina Bifida. I have experience with maneuvering both power and manual wheel chairs, administering a feeding through a g-tube, and doing basic exercises. I was assigned two campers who were under my 24 hour care for seven weeks. Prior to working at the camp for children with special needs, I worked at a day camp in the Chicago suburbs. I was a counselor for 4-6 year old girls. We did everyday summer activities where I also taught swimming lessons. If you would like to know more about me, I can answer any questions you have!
