I’m a nanny because I love children, I love to be around them and watch them grow. It's always been a joy of mind to be surrounded by kids and playing. To me there is something about children's laughter that will always make you smile. I believe I could be a great nanny and look forward to meeting a new family and growing with them.
My past childcare experience I began babysitting the kids next door to me at the age of 12. They were two boys; who were 4 and 6. It started off as an after school job for a few hours and over the years progressed to watching them for full nights/weekends. The second family I babysat for were my dad's family friend. They were two girls. At the time they were 4 and 5, and I baby sat them until they were about 11. After them I babysat at my local community center which ranged from 1- 8 children at a time with age ranges from infant to 12. Depending on the age we would watch educational programs, play with toys, or go out to the playground. I also was a summer camp counselor for 4 years and primarily cared for children in the 11-13 age group but also worked with the younger children as well. A normal work week would consist of : 35-40 Children with 3 counselors. We would do various physical activities during the morning,Arts and crafts toward the afternoon, lunch, swimming, and then another physical activity. On tuesdays we would attend field trips which ranged from a trip to the zoo, aquarium, please touch museum, bowling, roller skating, laser tag, and even a phillies game! Nannied three children for a year ages 4mos, 3y, and 5y at the time.
