I haven't had the oppurtunity to nanny before now but I have plenty of babysitting experience for time periods of time (up to and including 12 hours). I've cared for children aged 6 mos. to 12 yrs. in my 8 years of babysitting experience. I love kids and don't mind getting down and dirty to play with them! And I'm good with animals, too. At least, my dog and two cats seem to think so :)
In addition to babysitting, I have volunteered at my church for a number of years doing various things, all involving child care. I've worked in the nursery and let me tell you, I can sympathize with mothers of multiple infants now! I was a Bible Camp counselor three or four summers as well as a preschool enrichment program craft teacher/general helping hand for one year.
My child care style is to keep them actve and engaged in something. I don't like to let kids do too much TV, videogame, or computer time because I think playing outside or games that use imagination are so much better for a child. That's not to say that I don't ever let the kids I watch play on the computer or watch Spongebob but I much prefer non-technological games for the kids. I never had that kind of stuff and it was great!
I can cook and do light cleaning, if that is something your family needs.
I have taken courses on child care and child development.
I'm in college persuing a psychology degree right now but I would love to be a summer nanny for your family!
