Hello! My name is Monica K. I have a master’s in Education and have taught middle school for 8 years. I love kids and especially like to work with them in a mentoring capacity. As your child’s nanny, I would be a caring, nurturing presence, as well as a role model who would challenge them to form good habits and to grow into the very best version of themselves. My child care philosophy: Encourage healthy communication; it’s great for kids to learn to articulate their needs and frustrations in a respectful manner. Encourage independence; it’s good for the kids to do as much for themselves as possible. Encourage kindness and generosity: help kids empathize with others and act accordingly. Encourage responsibility: work before play; clean up right away, etc… Encourage imaginative play; kids grow cognitively, emotionally, and socially when they are free to create their own play scenarios Encourage outdoor Read more play as much as possible: because nature is good for us! Encourage reading books that portray the beauty, truth, and goodness of human nature: because we all need inspiration to reach high! (I love reading to kids!) A few more specifics: I would love to be a nanny for kids of any age, from infants to the teen years. Ideally, I’m looking for about 30 hours a week I’m the 3rd out of 6 kids so I’m used to a little chaos and definitely think “the more the merrier!” I am willing to do just about anything you would find helpful, from carpool to cooking, to tutoring and mentoring, to help organizing closets, kitchens and more! I am ready to start as soon as I find a good fit! I look forward to meeting you! Please feel free to message me with questions. Take Care! ~Monica
