Amanda’s Bio

My name is Amanda Wyant and I am 28 years old. I have been working as a nanny for many years now. I love what I do and love enriching children’s lives. Ever since I was little, I grew up watching my younger cousins. In my church’s nursery, I was able to teach Sunday school. I knew I wanted my career to include helping children. I started my first nanny job in high school for my doctor’s family and learned so much and loved it! When I went to the women’s college in Missouri for 2 years, I received my associate’s degree. I took classes in child development and child psychology. I loved learning more and more about different childhood development techniques. I think being a nanny is a wonderful career and I love setting a good example for children.

I am a very hard working, compassionate, fun, active and loving nanny. I believe in helping children become more creative. I am always learning new and fun creative crafts to do with children. I like helping them learn new educational things for their age range. I am a very organized, safety conscious, and hard working person. I believe in positive reinforcement, consistency, and routine for the children. I have learned lots of different techniques and ideals from all the families that I have worked for. I value my job as a nanny and I believe I would be a great asset to your family.
