I’m a nanny because I would like the experience of watching a baby grow from infancy, as I haven't done that in my life. At age 33, I decided to adopt later in life, but then decided not to in my 40's, no regrets although I've always enjoyed children. I enjoy teaching, sharing the growth experience and bringing an enriched environment to them. The work is often fun and always rewarding and a natural cause I can support.
My past childcare experience 5 years live in nanny for ages 2-13. Some of my successes on these jobs were: 6mos for 4.5yr old boy (while also caring for his mother who had paralytic MS & was completely physically disabled). Successfully administered behavior modification reward program to encourage him to quiet bedtime. 1 year with kindergartner (girl) 1/2 days. Encouraged her independence in inviting friends to come visit. In my first babysitting jobs in my early 20's, I studied Dr. Haim Gnott's books on listening effectively to children and was pleasently shocked at the difference his techniques made within a day of starting to use them! The kids really felt appreciative of being heard and that was a joy.
Additional comments Fun loving, mature, I look,feel, act 10 years younger than my age with plenty of energy, good health and attitude. Experienced in working alone and as a team as a domestic worker.
