Hi! I am a professional nanny with many years of experience. I have worked with all ages-am great with babies-love working with preschoolers-and enjoy helping with the varied needs of the grade school age child. I have worked in other countries in child care and have taken graduate level child development classes as well as parent-support courses. I am a Christian grandmother with a deep love and care for children and families. I enjoy supporting families and trying to be a big help and also striving to be a kind, loving, and balanced role model for children I enjoy making the demanding and vital work of raising a family just a little bit (or hopefully a lot) easier for parents. I am responsible, and committed but have lots of lighter side to me-I love music, arts and crafts, helping with homework and making routines turn into fun activities. I love Read more making friends and helping children to feel loved and secure. I have been now with a family with two children for almost a year and a half since their little girl was seven months old. She just recently had her second birthday. The mother unexpectedly lost her job when her company downsized. It was hard to leave this family and the two children I had grown so close to but I am glad that the mother now can spend some needed time with her family and I am looking for another wonderful family to work with! All of the best! Thanks-Martha
