Susie was with us for about 10 weeks from February - April 2009. The situation probably would have been better ...

Suzie’s Bio

 
 
 
I have been a nanny for over 14 years and in that time I have had several wonderful families and the most amazing children to love and help nurture.. and I hope to continue that journey with children.
 
My experience has shown me that children always want to explore and learn from birth, and even during pregnancy they are learning, so I feel as a care giver that to allow them and help them explore and create in an orderly environment in their formative years, will help them to become more diverse people as they get older, and help them to be able to look outside the box as life comes upon them with sometimes challenging problems.
 
During a childs infant stages I try to provide as much love and security as the parents, lots of singing, holding, laugh, reading, and outside walks. As they get in to toddlers stage they are learning their independence from us and so as they explore I help with sign language and other tools till the words come. At this stage stimulating all the senses is key for good development of their imagination. Laughing and playing with a child is best career I could ask for and to help a child enjoy and grow happy is a blessing
 
My goal with any family is always be a loving and safe extention of the parents and to keep good and open communication lines with you.

Susie was with us for about 10 weeks from February - April 2009. The situation probably would have been better had she been more forthcoming about wanting a full-time position, but we only needed someone part-time and started feeling as though she was just with us for the money until something more desirable with more hours came along. She was great at organizing and keeping things tidy. I was just about to ask her to work more hours for us when she called off on a Wednesday, one of my busiest days of the month. She'd called off 4 or 5 times in 10 weeks. Ironically enough, my husband happened to find her full-time nanny ad in a grocery store the same day she'd called off, so it made sense to end our working relationship that day. We wish her luck in the future.

Provider's Response

In references to Angela's review,this was a one time occurance in my nanny career all of my references will verify that I'm exteremly reliable.I would have loved more hours but I knew it was part time and that was fine because I had just moved to the area and had bought a used car that was a lemon to say the least.,and every times I had called out was because I got stuck somewhere with mechanical problems and once I'd fix one thing something else would go wrong.The last Wed I had worked I called to let her know I was stuck yet again .Then later that day she called and let me know she would n't need me anymore and she'd mail me my check .I truely felt horrible but I understood.I have a very reliable car now...My full time nanny signs were in all the store and had been since January.I truely loved her family and say a praire for them everynight.they have 2 beautiful children and even though it was a short time together they were a blessing in my life.
