I’m a nanny because I know there are many people in our area that have moved here and left their families and relatives behind. I believe I could be a great source of support, and if the fit is right everyone involved would win!
My past childcare experience Lots! I am a mother with a 30 and a 26 year old, and a beautiful grandson! I have taken care of plenty of their friends throughout the years as well. Sleepovers, parties, homework, after school activities, meals, sickness. You name it. I have experience in the classroom from preschool to middle school. In college I studied child development and elementary education. For 7 years I taught children ages 3 to 18 about making healthy lifestyle choices. I am extremely health-minded and believe in the "whole" picture of living life. We are spiritual, intellectual, physical and emotional beings. We need the balance!
Additional comments Trust in a relationship takes time. I believe the family and the nanny would need time to settle in and develop that trust. I know from experience we need to meet the children at their level and understanding to get the most positive relationship results. The greatest parental wisdom I have learned is to teach children they are responsible for their choices. They must experience the natural consequences of their behavior. This comes with consistency and follow through. Along with all the necessary teaching comes a love I have for each child and their unique talents. I encourage them to find their strengths and grow their confidence. P.S. I am CPR certified, First Aid certified, and taken GermBusters to keep us healthy!
