Skills & Abilities
Margaret has proven herself to be a remarkably responsible and nurturing caregiver and has truly become a part of our family. We are so sad to let her go and are only doing so to start our son in a preschool program.
Margaret is bright, reliable, nurturing, and responsive to feedback. She is also well-versed in child development, through her continuing education, past experiences as a nanny, and raising her own children. She has boundless energy and relates to our son in such a wonderful way, turning practically everything into a fun game that often includes an educational component as well. They are regularly at the park, playgroup, the library, singing and dancing around the house, reading, doing puzzles, and practicing the alphabet, numbers, and colors in a manner that is very engaging to our son. She knows how to structure time well, respects his schedule, but is also flexible and responsive to our son’s needs. Additionally, we prefer to restrict our son’s television viewing and Margaret has been very respectful of this.
She is also very diligent about giving our son his daily medicine and vitamins, preparing balanced meals and snacks, cleaning up his room, play areas, completing his laundry, and keeping a detailed nanny log of his intake, activities, any areas of concern, and leaving any notes for us.
Most important has been the love she shows our son. Our son misses her when she leaves and is eager for her return. They truly have formed a bond and we know Margaret is as concerned about his welfare as my husband and I are. This has been a tremendous source of comfort as we leave for work every morning.
We feel fortunate to have had Margaret in our home. Her approach to caring for our son has truly helped him develop into the amazingly loving and joyous child he is. Her style complements our parenting well, as she respects our personal philosophies while being confident enough to independently make day-to-day decisions regarding our son. We know she would be a wonderful additional to any family she works with.
