  About Me
 
Hi. I have fun watching the children discover and learn things. I like to take them for walks around the neighborhood, to the library and the park. We talk about the things we see and what they did in school. I like reading them books and playing with flash-cards. I am into health and fitness so I encourage the children to eat more healthfully and I want them to get exercise. I like animals. I like music. I sing and whistle. I am dependable, loving, kind, helpful, hardworking and intelligent. I like arts and crafts. I want the children to have challenging activities so they can gain motor skills and feel good about themselves. I will play games with them and help them with their homework. I can cook or do housework. I don't have a car but I have a driver's license with a clean driving record. I could be a live-in nanny or live out if you are near by. I currently live in Van Nuys, Ca. and am 55 years old. I am physically fit and can play catch with a football or run right next to the bicycle. I am ready, willing and able.

  Work Experience & Education Background
 
5 years experience, 0 references
As a teen-ager I did a lot of babysitting but I am not going to list all that. After moving to L. A., I worked in the nursery at a gym for 5 months so I cared for a lot of children there as well but not counting those children either. As a mother's helper, I cared for one 2 year old boy & helped with his 9 month old brother. As a full-time nanny, I lived for a year and a half with a single father who had 3 children, age 4, 6 & 8 when I started. He worked long hours and with no Mom around I did everything, cooking, cleaning, making Halloween costumes and then some. We lived thru a flood and moved to a new house. I packed & unpacked every box. I also was a nanny for two girls aged 2 & 4 while their Mom went thru cancer treatments. I nannied a 4 year old blind child who had epileptic seizures and was un-able to speak and during that time the parent took a trip to France so I was there for him. There was another family that had two girls age 10 & 12 that I was a live in nanny for. My last experience was with a family that had two boys who were 2 & 3. I only worked one day a week for them but it would be a long day, & sometimes 8 loads of laundry when the kids were in pre-school. I had a key to clean the house before picking them up from school. I miss them a lot. I love children.
