Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…When I was in high school, my friend and I volunteered at our church and did Bible study for kindergartners and preschoolers.
Activities I enjoy doing with children…I love interacting with children in indoor and outdoor play! Whether it’s going on a scavenger hunt or playing a board game.
The most important part about being a nanny…Having a close relationship with both the children and the parents. I think it’s super important to have a trusting relationship with the children, but also the parents so they feel safe that I’m in their home taking care of their children.
My experience with special needs children…In high school, I job shadowed in a classroom with special needs children. This included blind children, children with Down syndrome, and children on the autism spectrum. I don’t have much experience in that area, but love all children and would be eager to get to know your child and their needs if you would have me.
My favorite nanny moment…I used to watch these two boys who were 5, and 3, who had a poster of all the states in their room. Every time I woke them up from a nap they wanted me to sing “the state song” where I would list all the states in a song. They got a kick out of it and had me do it every single day.
