Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…-Babysitting multiple families for 6 consecutive years
-Academy 360 Volunteer (working with special needs childrent)
-Sunflower Daycare volunteer
Activities I enjoy doing with children…I am a whole hearted believer of children being active instead of being glued to an iPad all day! As a lifeguard and swim teacher, I love swimming with the kids I babysit and playing games with them in the pool!
The most important part about being a nanny…After taking multiple child development courses, I think the most important part about being a nanny is to create an environment that is highly interactive while also being educational. Moreover, it is important to make sure children know their feelings are valid.
My experience with special needs children…I do have experience with special needs children from my time volunteering at Academy360
My favorite nanny moment…I was playing Moana at a children's party and the children loved me so much that a mom asked me to babysit for the 4-year-old girl. When I babysat her for the first time she was convinced Moana was babysitting her!
