I’m a nanny because I've always loved children and recognize the great importance to nurture their growing spirits. Caregivers should enable an environment in which growth, exploration and age appropriate discipline unite with maintaining an enchanted and peaceful environment.
My past childcare experience I started babysitting while in highschool and haven't stopped since. I've incorporated Child Psychology as well as Early Childhood education courses throughout my college education. I majored however with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting, sculpting, photography, etc. and graduated with my degree in 2003. I find my experience and love for children, art & psychology combine very well. For example, having studied developmental milestones as well as the understanding of how children think and learn gives me the confidence to guide them. Also, giving them structured and unstructured art classes allows the children expression and exploration of themselves, their capabilities and not to mention what they’ll learn with colors shapes and numbers, etc.
Additional comments I have worked as a Pre-k 3 teacher and art instructor from preschool to 8th Graders. I find that I prefer to work within a family, so that I can give an infant or child, one on one attention. Thinking back, apart from the children I've taught, I've counted about 30 children, in 18 years, that I've cared for personally as Nanny or Babysitter, both. Out of the 30, 10 were Newborns. Out of the 30, 4 were Autism Spectrum. And out of the 10 Newborns, one was a Preemie. Please call me to meet me, for more personal information.
