Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…I worked as a tutor my last year in high school for ages 2nd- 5th, as an extended learning group leader and as an RBT with behavioral innovations.
Activities I enjoy doing with children…Making meals/snacks and any crafts I find that are in theme with the season !
The most important part about being a nanny…This is a very important time in their development and I will be a person they see constantly and should trust, rely and enjoy seeing so I want to make it as fun and mentally stimulating as possible
My experience with special needs children…I’ve worked with kiddos with ADHD, ADD, Autism spectrum disorder and PICA so I’m familiar the constant attention needed and willing to give the necessary attention. I’m also comfortable with working through problem behaviors with antecedent strategies.
My favorite nanny moment…One of the autistic kiddos was not on a potty schedule but keeping him on one during my session allowed him to void in the toilet for the first time ! Mom was so excited to hear the news and it made my day to see them both smile
