I’m a nanny because I want to be a nanny because: I enjoy doing the fun stuff with kids such as art projects, learning activities, and field trips to fun places (library, zoo, museums, parks, etc). At heart, I am big kid and love to be around that fun spirit that children hold. I like getting to know children and being part of their family. Being a nanny is like being part of a whole different family and I find that fun and interesting. I love the opportunity to meet new people, to travel, and experience new things.
My past childcare experience In my work experience, I was a Nanny for about five years. As a nanny, I watched a little girl, took her to school, co-oped at her school, made her lunches and snacks, set up play dates with her friends, did crafts with her, took her to fun places like the museum, zoo, library, beaches, etc. Currently, I work at a childcare center. In this position, I oversee the safety of 30+ children, transport children to and from school, & facilitate the on-site enrichment activities and curriculum. At the childcare site, I also work with many diversities such as foster children, special needs, twins, multicultural families, DSHS families, etc. In my volunteer experience, I have been a Sunday School Teacher, helped at Vacation Bible School at my church, been a Youth Leader for Junior High and Highschool group at church, been a Checkin Director for Sunday School, helped co-op at a Preschool (assisted teacher/helped with crafts) and I went on a mission trip were I was a Teacher`s Aid for a school in Brazil. I have five nieces (2 months old,2yr old, 5yr old,7yr old,9yr old)and I`ve done alot of babysitting for friends and family.
