I’m a nanny because Now that my children are older (ages 8 to 19 years old), I am able to help my family financially. I thought why not do what I'm best at and what I love :)
My past childcare experience I'm a married, stay-at-home mom of 5 with 19+ years experience. I have my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education and Linguistics from CUNY Queens College. When I was engaged/first married, I was a nanny for a 3 month old boy. When he was 18 months his mom had another baby and was able to stay home with him. I have been a catechist (religion teacher) for 14 years, a girl scout leader for 4 years and have volunteered at my children's elementary school in various positions. I've had an infant, toddler, preschool child and school aged child all at the same time and every combination in between. I've always managed to keep house, cook, assist with homework, etc. My children were never late for school, all maintained a B+ or better average and were happy along the way :) I've never had a discipline "problem" and believe in positive reinforcement and avoiding meltdowns primarily by giving plenty of warnings before a shift in activity.
Additional comments Although I haven't had a paying job in so many years, I have impeccable personal references including teachers, church staff, girl scout parents, etc.
