I’m a nanny because I have loved being a "granny/nanny" for over eight years. It is so rewarding watching an infant grow through all of the different milestones to become an incredible little human being...with a great sense of humor and a fantastic imagination. I've especially loved teaching little children all about the basics such as numbers, A B Cs, colors, etc. and life skills like dressing and feeding themselves. But making it all a fun experience with songs and silliness.
My past childcare experience I have been Nanny to two awesome families for over the past eight years. I have two adult children of my own and also four wonderful little grandchildren that I care for from time to time. Through the years I have worked with children at Sunday school, in scouts and as a classroom assistant. I believe that a nanny should not simply babysit but be active in the child's emotional, social, physical, and educational growth.
Additional comments As a Nanny, I like to use the word "No" sparingly, usually just for dangerous situations, and instead divert attention to positive activities. As a child becomes older I like to let the child chose good behavior with "consequences" for bad such as having toys "put in time out", for example if they are thrown etc. When a child is old enough, I love taking them on strolls to local parks to play and on outings to the library for story time, or to local children's museums.
