I’m a lot of fun. Veteran professional nanny for 20 years. I love reading, gardening, arts and crafts. Experience with all ages and expertise with special needs. Autism, ADHD, blindness, cerebral palsy, learning disorders, sensory disorders, etc. I love my job because I get to play with and teach kids everyday. I’m a very active nanny; I detest screen time as I find it incredibly boring. You will not find me on my phone, you will find me building forts, doing arts and crafts, gardening and reading to your children. I’m very democratic in my approach: if your kids don’t feel like doing one activity, they can choose one of their own. I’m big on imaginative play and teaching while playing. Great at both homework help AND tutoring, you’ll come home to homework understood and completed. Because of my college degrees, and my decades of experience, I am a top Read more of the line nanny and am priced as such. I took many classes in college including human growth and development, psychology for children, behavioral psychology, and teaching at the elementary level. My biggest compliment is that child psychologists and child psychiatrists have hired me, trusted me with their children, and given me stunning reviews when my time to move on came. I’m available for part time and full time permanent gigs, temporary gigs for vacationers and other situations and one time date nights. I cook, clean, do dishes, drive (clean record) and can run errands on request. I’ve also served as a household manager and stocked the fridge, made and kept appointments for contractors and conducted heavy duty cleaning. You will be 100% satisfied with my work.
