I'm currently working 34 hours a week in Silver Lake. I've been with this family both part-time & full time with their 2 children for the past 9 years (ages 4 mos-9 years old) I'm looking for some extra hours for the weekends or weekdays 10am-1ish. I am a Child Development major with over 1, 000 academic hours from L. A. Valley College & a certified One-on-One Para-Professional Shadow. ---------------------------------- My ideal situation is one in which the parent sees their nanny as part of the team. My background in child development & photography gives me a special talent in watching and interpreting the child. My main focus as a nanny is keeping the child safe, and then having the honor to describe their world to them. They have questions but are too young to know what to ask. That is where I excel. I watch what interests the child, Read more follow their eyes and what they're drawn to and I allow them to explore their environment with all their senses- but keeping them safe at all times.

Laurie watches my 9-month-old son once a week. She is very sweet and attentive, always takes him for walks and loves to get down on the floor and play with him. He's all smiles when I get home! We are so happy we found her.
