Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…-AZDCS (Arizona Department of Child Safety) as a Parent Aid
-Childcare Department at Seville Golf and Country Club (daycare and summer camp work)
-Occasional babysitting 10+ years
Activities I enjoy doing with children…Arts & crafts, music/dancing, walks, park, bike rides (if applicable), board games/card games.
The most important part about being a nanny…Creating a bond with both the children and parents. It's important to me that it's a mutual "good fit" with any family that I work with
My experience with special needs children…I assistant coached a special needs cheerleading team for 2 years. I've also had experience babysitting and from working in a daycare with special needs children. (ADHD, Asperger's, Autism, Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy)
My favorite nanny moment…The little moments- random hugs from the kids, "I love you" 's... makes the more challenging moments all worth it.
