I’m a nanny because I seek part-time or occasional work that is engaging, challenging, and fulfilling. Caring for children requires a special set of skills ranging from organization and communication, not to mention the ability to switch gears at a moment's notice to accommodate the needs of the child/ren and family without getting grumpy or frustrated. I enjoy the challenges and joys that come from confidently and responsibly ushering a child/ren through another wonderful day.
My past childcare experience I am a mother of three fabulous children (college junior down to 14 years old), and I have loved every minute of it. I would like to share my deep caring for infants and kids of all ages. I am gentle yet firm and consistent, very outgoing and athletic, and an "easy" personality in any home.
Additional comments Your parenting style is unique. I am able to mirror your "philosophy" so that your child/ren receive consistent messages/vocabulary around all issues. Finding ways to say "yes" to children is appropriate for building self-esteem and confidence, as well as teaching when it's necessary to make compromises; however, I stand firm when the answer is "no". Hobbies that I enjoy and would be happy to share with youngsters include music and movement (I used to teach a class for 1- to 5-year olds), as well as any kind of sport (I used to teach acrobatics, trampoline, and swimming and diving, and I have experience playing and coaching other sports such as volleyball, soccer, lacrosse, and tennis). On a quiet or rainy day, I can oversee art and sewing projects or the building of castles and train sets. I have tutored many academic subjects at all levels and am happy to help with homework, essay writing, special assignments, and test prep. I am a great cook and can include children in the design, shopping, and creation of delicious meals for the whole family. In short, I am a Jill of all trades and will bring warmth and a high level of energy and communication to our working and personal relationship.
