I’m a nanny because I love teaching children as I find I learn just as much from them. After working in a daycare it seemed that it would be easier to give more support and attention to a child in a one-on-one situation, and working in a home allowed extra flexibility to tend to things like illnesses, outings, play-dates, and extra curricular activities. Each child is unique and I believe it's important to adapt to a child's specific needs in order to foster a sense of security. With that in place, their development can flourish. I am very dependable and punctual, and with 8 years under my belt I am very easily adaptable. I take my job seriously and it is important to me to meet not only the needs of the child but the needs of the parents as well.
My past childcare experience I began my training at xx Center in the Early Care and Education of Children class (a 2-year-program) where we spent time in the classroom learning about child development and care, and would also work in the daycare facility on site with ages 2-5. After I completed my training I worked in the daycare at xx as a lead teacher in the 3-year-old room. I decided to become a nanny and worked for my first family from January 2008 until August 2011 watching a (then) 6-month old boy. I also worked as a nanny for a different family (we had a nanny share) beginning in March of 2008 (a then 8-month old and her 4-year-old brother), and I am currently still working for this family. I was also a nanny for a newborn boy from October 2009 until July 2011 when I went to school for my bachelor's degree in Psychology. I graduated with my degree in May of 2015.
Additional comments My current kiddos have outgrown nanny care and when they will be starting school in August I will be in need of a full time position. My start date is somewhat flexible but I would prefer to begin around the time school starts. Thank you for your interest in my profile and I hope to hear from you soon!- Amanda
