  About Me
 
Hello families. Caring for youth is a passion and something I thoroughly enjoy. I most enjoy caring for infants to preschool-aged children. I have worked with youth and children since I can remember in a number of capacities. I have two years experience as a full-time nanny for children between 14 weeks and 4 years old, a lifeguard, a camp counselor and an after-school teacher. Most recently, I worked in a foster care facility where I cared for four teenage and special needs males with cognitive deficiencies.

I so enjoy spending time with little ones by watching them grow, learn and exercise curiosity. I come prepared for the day with creative activities even toddlers will enjoy. My philosophy is to make time away from mom and dad as fun as possible. I insist on carrying out the routine the parents have set in place. I have found that structure is a key. Also, I like to give choices and offer space. I practice positive talk. Overcoming children's behavior hurdles is something I am familiar with.

At the age of 33, I bring a level of maturity, experience and excitement. I am punctual, reliable (rarely sick), and flexible. I am creative, educated, and qualified (CPR/First Aid) with excellent communication skills, as I once taught English in Thailand. I have a BA in English/Creative Writing. I come prepared with crafts, songs, games and activities--we'll never be bored (or watching TV).

Additionally, I have a clean driving record. I am happy to help with typical household duties such as laundry, dishes and helping the children clean up. I am happy to help care for pets too.

A family seeking the following will be the best fit:
- Seeks a care provider 2-4 days each week (20-32 hours/week with Fridays and Sundays always off).
- Offers a minimum of $12. 50 per hour.
- Gives the nanny a Summer break from mid-June to mid/late July

Thank you for the interest. I look forward to hearing from you. Have a beautiful day.
