Hello! My name is Taylor! I am a responsible, non-smoking, clean driving record, loving nanny candidate for your family! I am a college graduate with two bachelor's degrees (German and Hospitality Management).
I have babysat on and off throughout my life and had many memorable experiences with wonderful families! I have cared for infants, toddlers and teens and I am proudly still a friend to my first charges who are now mature, well-rounded adults (19 and 20 years old!). I currently work as a full time nanny for a child under 1 and I care for 2 other infants, a 1 year old and 2 elementary school children in my "spare" time. I also have cared for children with special needs in the past and will be able and eager to learn about your child's special needs to provide safe and loving care.
I love pets! I have 2 cats of my own and am comfortable around all domestic animals regardless of breed. I volunteer regularly at Helping Paws Animal Shelter as a dog walker and cleaner. I love giving back to the organization from which I adopted my best friends!
My favorite activities with children include reading, crafts, listening to music (singing along and dancing), being outside (nature walks, picnics, park visits, leisurely strolls, flower collecting), swimming and visiting the library! I am constantly looking for new craft ideas and love introducing the child(ren) to enriching and engaging, age appropriate activities.
I am willing to take on a multitude of tasks in addition to childcare: laundry, dishes, tidying common areas, driving to appointments/lessons/school, preparing meals, shopping for the family. Other requests? Just ask!
I am interested in working for family that practices gentle parenting techniques, spanking-free household +++bonus points+++ if you're a "crunchy" family! I am experienced with nurturing infants and take a very baby-led approach. While I will happily assist in getting baby in a routine, I not comfortable with cry-it-out or ferber methods. I am willing enforce rules and boundaries at an age-appropriate level.
I am open to a live in situation if a guesthouse/in laws quarters is provided and my 2 cats are welcome. I am also open to the idea of relocating if we decide mutually that we would complement each other and for the ideal opportunity! Please don't hesitate to reach out if you are interested in learning more! My fabulous references are available upon request.
