I’m a nanny because I have quite a bit of free time, and I miss working with children!
My past childcare experience For the last five years, I have worked as a Lead Staff at an extremely specialized summer camp for people of all ages with special needs. Working as a paid counselor (I was one of three selected from a pool of over 800 experienced volunteer counselors), I have cared for people with varying diagnoses and gained firsthand experience in all aspects of caregiving, including behavior management, hygiene, and medical needs. I am CPR, First Aid, and G-Tube certified, I am trained through CPI for nonviolent crisis prevention, I am a member of CERT, and I am fluent in both American Sign Language and Classical Latin. For the last year, I gained additional caregiving experience by being a special-needs caretaker, a part-time nanny, and a regular babysitter at various periods throughout the year. In caring for people with varying diagnoses (including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Intellectual Disability, and Epilepsy to name a few), I have become an extremely patient caregiver. I will take the time to provide anything that your children may need without hesitation, all while keeping up a positive and energetic attitude! While I may only be eighteen years old, I have been faced with more responsibility than most caregivers that are years older. I have been a Girl Scout assistant troop leader for the last three years, and before that I was a troop aide for four years. Being a Girl Scout for the last twelve years has given me the resources and knowledge to provide children with a safe, nurturing, fun, and encouraging environment.
