I’m a nanny because I have loved caring for others since I was five years old. I enjoy watching children learn (the "aw-ha" moment). I believe that children are our most prized resource, and if we don't help them become successful adults then the fate of our future is doomed.
My past childcare experience I have worked with many different types of families. I am open to new experiences and people. I cared for an autistic boy, a paraplegic mother, premature twins, a vegetarian family, an elderly woman with Alzheimer, and more. I never discriminate; I am a people person. I worked with my first family for about 7 years. This family beleived in me enough to pay my way through college. I have experience with lots of different pets as well.
Additional comments My personal approach to childcare is to establish clear limits and expectations but allow children considerable self-determination within these boundaries. I try to be flexible to the needs of the family. I nurture and facilitate learning through constructive play.I prefer to take directions from the family for one week. I am a very swift learner, so it usually doesn't take that long, after being orientated to the family, I am self-driven/ motivated to complete all tasks promptly. I've had some accounting training in QuickBooks and Residential Appartment Management training.
