The most important part about being a nanny…What matters to me about being nanny is making the kids feel as comfortable and safe as possible around me. I want them to see me as someone they can trust and have fun with. I don't want to feel like am outsider and "worker", I want them to feel like I am a part of the family.
My experience with special needs children…Worked as a special needs swim instructor for children aged 4 months - 15 years
My favorite nanny moment…My favourite nanny moment is when a 9 month old I was watching took his first steps. I had been constantly having him practice standing and moving his feet for him and finally he took his first steps, that was a very special and unforgettable moment.
