Amy’s Bio

Thank you for taking a moment to view my Bio. My name is Amy and I have been providing childcare for over 20 years. I am a mom to two school aged children. I do not need to bring my children with me.

I genuinely enjoy being a Nanny because it gives me an opportunity to work closely with parents. As a Nanny I feel that I am able to be more invested in the needs of your child because we have a smaller ratio than you would see in a daycare setting. I genuinely love getting to know the in's and out's of the routine, emotional, and physical well being of your child/children. It is important for us to have a open dialogue so that I can provide the absolute best care.

I have cared for children of all ages & and all backgrounds. I could go on and on talking about my previous experience but honestly your child is an individual and they need to be loved and cared for in that way. My experience has taught me to never say never. Keeping a positive attitude because being positive has gotten me further than any amount of negativity. You will tell me what your child likes, what they need, and I will give it 100% to achieve that.

We lead a very active lifestyle and you will find me on the side-lines most weekends cheering my son on at a soccer game. We enjoy swimming at the local pool, as well as hiking, and playing basketball. With my daughter we are exploring horseback riding. We also love to bake & read together.

In my free time I love to cook, and explore new ingredients. Recently I have been working on more Gluten Free recipes and learning about Gluten sensitivity. I also experimented and perfected making baby foods, and also homemade healthier chicken nuggets for my family.

I am also the current Home & School President & I also volunteer one morning a week assisting 5th graders with reading in small groups. That is something that I will be able to give up upon obtaining a Full or Part-time Nanny position.

I am hoping to find family that is looking for someone long term, or for the whole summer. While I do not need to bring my children they make me a better Nanny because it has given me hands on knowledge. I can be flexible with my schedule but would prefer to have guaranteed minimum of hours.

Thank you again for taking time to read through my information!
