I will be dedicated in assisting you in meeting the long term goal of parenting: to raise your children to be happy, secure, and successful adults who make healthy choices on their own. But above all, I will keep your little ones safe. Hi! My name is Renee G. I've nannied, tutored and home schooled a family's 4 children, for 7 years and their fifth child, for 3 years. At the start of my employment, they were aged newborn, preemie twins, 2 & 4 years. They are now 1 month (also a preemie), 7, 9, & 11 years. The parents attribute my home schooling and tutoring to the children reading and doing math facts before reaching the standard school age. Three of the four children attend 'Top 10 Schools' in Chicago, being a gifted center, ranked #1 statewide and the 4th attends an International School, ranking #2 statewide. Last year, Read more all 4 attended a classical school, ranking #3 statewide. When tested, they scored significantly above age/grade level. I have 9+ years of experience caring for, tutoring, and home schooling children age infant to 13 years. I have education and work experience in both the Social Service and Early Childhood Education fields. I've served as Preschool and School Age Director, (children ages 3 - 12) and Master Teacher of a preschool, (children ages 6 weeks - 6 years). Also, I previously taught with the Chicago Public Schools as Team Teacher. My nanny duties include but are not exclusive to the following: I'm completely responsible for safety monitoring, home schooling and tutoring, children's schedule, children's care including food choices, medical conditions, clothing choices, disciplinary methods, initiated and implemented use of award charts, potty training, personal habits and restrictions. I assist with school assignments & projects, prepare children's meals and snacks, bottle feedings, devised & implemented daily schedule that meet the physical & emotional needs of the children, assists in enhancing children's emotional, physical, social, cognitive and language development & growth as well as developmental milestones & goals. I provide stimulating & age appropriate interactive activities, plan play dates & fun excursions, initiated and implement daily, positive self imaging activities, books, movies and plays, initiate and emphasize daily, the connection and importance of positiveness, inspiration, success and meditating. I create a positive childcare climate by avoidance of and effectively handling sibling rivilry.
