I’m a nanny because I love working and playing with kids. I can be firm to uphold rules but still enjoy sitting on the floor and playing with toys. I love taking kids to museums/zoos/aquariums and I think that kids shouldn't just sit at home all summer and watch tv.
My past childcare experience I was certified through a Red Cross class as a babysitter when I was 12 and have been babysitting ever since. For three consecutive summers, I served as a nanny for a family with three kids in my neighborhood (ages 1-3, 7-9, and 9-11). While working for them I have had up to 5 kids (ages 3-11) under my care at one time. I have also gone on vacations with that family so the parents could go out at night. I have been CPR and First Aid certified previously, and if asked I will update my certifications. I have also worked at two summer camps as a horseback riding instructor and camp counselor. I have had experience with newborn babies and feel very comfortable dealing with them.
