I’m a nanny because Children have always been the most important part of my life.
My past childcare experience I am 25 years old and have nannied for five different families over the last seven years. I have experience with all ages, through babysitting, working at childcare centers with ages infant through 12 years, accompanying choirs with children ages 3 through 18, and student teaching in a third-grade class. I spent a year and a half working at an emergency foster care center where I cared for children ages 2-12 with various special needs, including behavioral, emotional, cognitive, and physical challenges. I have worked with children who are terminally ill, autistic, non-verbal, tube-fed, and wheelchair-bound. I play piano and speak Spanish, so music and language are part of my everyday interactions. Experience with children with autism, ADD/ADHD, speech delays, anxiety, PTSD, cerebral palsy, brain damage, organ transplants, g-tubes, limited mobility, and eating disorders. I am competent and confident in my ability to handle any situation that arises. I am certified in First Aid and CPR. Overall, after working with literally hundreds of children, the most important thing I have learned is that each child has unique needs and I must constantly adjust my methods to create the best environment for each individual child.
