I am a former preschool teacher turned professional nanny, looking to work 4 days a week. I have a strong love and respect for all children. I have 20+ years of experience. I have also had the pleasure to work and care for infants all the way up to school age children.
I believe children thrive on consistency and routine, and like to follow a schedule that caters to the child's and parents needs.
I always try to make the time I spend with a child as productive as possible. I love to teach children in any way possible, whether in a classroom, or privately in a home. I always bring a bag filled with books, crafts and things to do with the child. I like to call it "preschool in a bag". I use it as a tool to keep the child engaged, learning/growing and having fun. :) They teach me as much as I teach them.
When infants are in my care, I work to develop their senses, and apply what is developmentally appropriate for their age/and stage they are in life, (ie; tummy time, sitting up, rolling over, reading, playing, grasping, etc.) I also help to implement a routine.
I am extremely flexible with my hours. Having a degree in Psychology also gives me the tools to deal with all "types" of behaviors, which allows me to anticipate a child's wants and needs, to make for an easier day and a happier child.

I am CPR and 1st Aid certified, very reliable, dependable, and have formed lasting relationships with the families I have worked for in the past. I come with excellent references, and look forward to working with a family that can form a lasting relationship.
Thank you for your time.... :)
Ps. I am allergic to cats
