I want to become a Nanny because I have a passion for working with children. I strongly feel that children keep you feeling young. We as adults have the responsibility to bring children up in a loving and safe environment. I want to add to the stability in a child's life by being there for them when they need me. When children first meet a new person it can be a scary experience for them. I like to earn the child''s trust by proving to them that I am safe. When a child is very shy, it is best to start out slow. I enjoy doing arts and crafts, I start on a little project and invite the child to join. Children love working with their hands and when they have someone else to work with it makes it much more exciting. I try to incorporate games that will stimulate learning. Educational play like learning, colors, shapes, animals, numbers, letters, and suggestions made by the parents. If the child is a baby, showing affection and having a smile on my face let''s the baby know that I am a friendly person. Babies might not be able to talk, but they can sense when a person is nice or mean. When I work with children, the best part of my job is when I can make a difference in a child's life.
