Joanne’s Bio Dear Potential Family, My name is JoAnne Ames of Weymouth Mass. I am seeking a part time nanny position with a family who wants an experienced, loving and resourceful nanny. I have worked as a full time nanny in Hingham for over twenty years. I have experience with children as young as four days (preemie twins) to seventeen years old. I have made childcare my life's work because I genuinely love children. They are my favorite people in the world and being a part of a child's growth and development is a major source of joy in my life. I am a high energy and self-motivated individual. I view each job as a partnership between parents and myself, communication being the key component of the working relationship. I offer a safe and fun environment to any child under my care, and I value honesty, affection and realistic and Read more understood goals for children. Instilling a love for reading, a sense of respect and the practice of manners are examples of behavior I teach my charges. I also possess a great sense of humor, which I feel is an asset with raising children. It is my absolute belief that my references will echo the qualities I have expressed here. For sixteen years I worked for the Pinto family, followed by five years with the Farley family. Both families live in Hingham and have multiple children, all of whom I consider to be my family and remain an important and cherished part of my life. If you would like to learn more about my qualifications and experience, please e-mail or phone. I look forward to seeing if we are a good fit and pursuing a mutually beneficial relationship. Thank you for your time and consideration. All the best to you and your little ones! Sincerely, JoAnne Ames
