My name is Jamie, and I am a 30 year old Chicago native who is looking for a full time nanny position. For the past 5 years I have worked as a Developmental Therapist in small group and individual settings.
I earned my Undergraduate Degree in Psychology from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst in 2007 and obtained my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from DePaul University, as well as my Type 04 certification in 2010.
The majority of my previous work experience has been with preschool age children. As an educator and developmental therapist I have worked with a number of children and families with a range of developmental needs. I am a strong believer that play is essential in the development of young children. I have seen, first hand, how expanding children’s play correlates with learning and symbolic thinking. I have gained a wealth of knowledge around supporting children’s social-emotional, physical/motor, and language development through a developmental, play-based approach.
As a nanny, I look forward to using my experience in both early childhood education and therapeutic intervention as a foundation.
