I am an experienced nanny and have worked with children of all ages in many capacities. I have been baby-sitting for over half my life and was also an aupair in Germany for a year. That family had three kids at the time and I spent much of my time caring for the new baby, but I also spent time with their pre-school aged boys as well. I have worked at summer camps for 9 summers as cabin counselor, arts and crafts instructor, archery instructor, supervisory staff, nurses aide and (for my last 3 camp summers) as the Girls' Campus Head at a co-ed camp in Maine.
For three years, I worked as a nanny for a family with 3 children. As during my experience in Germany, I spent much of my time with the youngest child. I love working with babies and watching them grow and discover the world around them. I taught the baby some baby sign language and helped him to communicate his needs before he could even talk and took him to a music class and Gymboree as per his parent wishes. I would pick up his older siblings from school and also have them full-time during vacations and holidays. My time with them ended when their youngest entered pre-school. During my three years with them, their children ranged from newborn through 10 years old.
Currently, I work for a wonderful family with 3 girls, aged 6, 4, and 2. I have been with them a year and a half now, since the baby was about 6 months. During the school year I would help the oldest get ready for kindergatren and see her on the bus if her parents had already left for work. I would then take the middle to pre-school 3 times per week and spend lots of time with their youngest. Now that it is summer we have time to all play together. I love taking the kids to places for them to play and learn, including library storytime, the park, museums, and even the pet store to learn about animals. I structure our days around plenty of outside and active time as well as quiet crafts/drawing/journaling time. I also prepare breakfast, lunch, and 2 snacks per day and will occasionally start dinner for the whole family. They truly are a wonderful family and the only reason I am looking for a new job is because they are moving out of state and I rather like it here and don' want to move at this point.
As for me personally, I like to cook, read, bake, and crochet. I spend a lot of time outdoors and I think kids should spend more time playing outside (or inside, depending on the activity/weather) than in front of a TV.
I look forward to speaking with you and answering any questions you might have about me or my experiences.
Thanks for reading this!
