I have a life-long passion for children and would love to get back into nannying. I am experienced with all ages from newborn on up and have always been able to connect with children very naturally.
I am a very well-rounded caregiver -- nurturing and compassionate, but firm when needed; respectful of all parenting styles; genuinely enjoy sharing children's activities with them; can expose them to sign language and later on basic Spanish... I just really put my heart into the time I spend with little ones!
I have two teens of my own and I can well remember how exhausting those early years of raising children can be, so I'm willing to pitch in with other things like errands, cooking, laundry, etc. I have a great work ethic and am extremely reliable because I hardly ever get sick.
Let's see, what else... I am easy-going and adaptable, can get along with just about any kind of parents. It's your home, your children, and your way of life -- I totally respect and support that. I try my best to be what you are looking for, whether you are a new parent and perhaps need to gain a little confidence or an experienced parent just needing someone in the trenches with you.
I should also mention that professionalism is very important to me and I prefer to work with families who use a contract to guide our working relationship -- you can use the one I have as a starting point if you need to.

We interviewed Mary for a nanny position and were VERY impressed by her. She was extremely personable and responsible and genuinely enjoyed children. While we weren't able to use her for ourselves, we would definitely recommend her to anyone else considering a nanny. She's worth an interview for sure!
