I’m a nanny because I have worked in Higher Education for many years and feel too young to retire, so now I would like to go back to what made me the happiest... caring for infants and young children. It will allow me to continue to be and educator in a different manner.
My past childcare experience I come from a big family, and I am the oldest of five children; my Mom taught me very early to care for my siblings since I was so much older than they were, and I am so happy for the training she gave me. I have two children of my own (who are now professional adults) and chose to be an at home stay Mom to care for my children until they started nursery school. I have a Masters Degree in Education, and while my children were young, I was very involved with young children planning events and conducting Spanish classes at my home for children ages 3-6 exposing them to the language through games and music. I have always been around young children and have a great rapport with them. Caring for young children comes naturally to me and being a teacher has also given me the opportunity to teach the children while I cared for them..."once a teacher...always a teacher." Privately,I have also cared for newborns through two years of age. My most recent experience has been with a boy since he was two months old and he is now 16 months; it's amazing to watch the great and happy personality he has developed. I have a very open, easy-going,cheerful and happy personality; children feel very comfortable in my presence. I am very creative and love to get them involved in many areas of development through play, games, books, art and music. I believe in creating a structured environment to include good manners while still being loving and nurturing. I am very energetic and enjoy planning activities and events for the children. I love to sing and dance...the kids love it! I would like to add that while I am a mature woman in age, I have the stamina, looks and energy of a much younger person. I live a very healthy life ,and I am a non-smoker.
Additional comments I am very reliable and trustworthy and would like to have the opportunity to personally meet with the parents, so they can better understand my qualifications,personality and love for children.
