Hi I'm Amber! I have 5 years of nannying experience and 2 years as a child swim instructor. I love my job and take pride in making it fun, encouraging, and educational. I have worked with ages ranging from new born to 9 years. I enjoy outings, science and art projects, and sports with the kids.

I just can't say enough about how wonderful Amber is with kids. We have a rambunctious 4 year old and the first week she found a board game that incorporates running around - he learns sit still skills but gets to be energetic. Our 15 month old is pretty stubborn and Amber handles him with grace and patience.
Amber kept the kids busy with outdoor and museum play dates as well as promptly drove them to classes.
She is flexible and receptive to changes in routine/care style.
Unfortunately we live too far away to justify the part time position vs. travel. My kids don't want anyone else to come stay with them because Amber forms genuine bonds based on respect and time spent playing.
I cannot recommend Amber enough and know she can help your family flourish.
