Hello Moms and Dads - I know many of you may be in a childcare crunch with the school strikes. I am available for short term care. I can do a share with 2 families (cuts down your expenses) All American Nanny with over 25 years experience long term checkable references are available. I am currently working as a travel nanny. I am looking for short term childcare jobs in between travel gigs. Why I babysit? That is a simple question. First off, being a childcare provider offers me a perk unique to this industry - the opportunity to do child stuff on a daily basis. To pack a picnic lunch and spend a autumn day kicking leaves in the park, to walk in the first snowfall exploring size and shapes of snowflakes, to explore the latest exhibit at local museum, to make chalk masterpieces on a sidewalk or pathway, Read more or to use ones imagination while visiting a zoo. You can not find that itinerary with any other job. Secondly and most important, I truly believe that there is nothing more fulfilling than helping a child grow into their full potential. Being a nanny offers me the opportunity to get paid to do what I love - develop a positive and rewarding relationship with a child, to have a real impact on the person that they become, to truly make a difference. I love the daily opportunity to view the world through a child's eye view on life. Giving a child the love, care and support they need to get a good start on life is my vocation. I believe that there is no task more important than to nurture a child. I feel that in my work as a caregiver that I am shaping a positive future for the world. Member of International Nanny Association, Coordinator for National Nanny Training Day. Current CPR/First Aid, vaccinated, t-dap, flu Attend Nannypalooza - nanny conference every fall, INA nanny conferences every spring, and National Nanny Training Day in Spring - these are all educational weekends for nannies.
