Hello, We would appreciate it if you could take a moment to look at our profile and give us a call if you find that you are interested in what we have to offer your family. . We have lengthy and in depth knowledge with more than 20 yrs experience caring for children of all ages. These children have varied widely in age, social, intellectual, physical, emotional and psychological developments. We love all children and every phase that they go through as they grow bigger and older. We have always felt children teach us about the joy , discovery and wonder that life brings us. We love seeing the world through their eyes. We love getting on their level on the floor to see how the infants and babies view the world. Just taking in life as it comes at them and they just seem to have a greater sense of awareness that we as adults have lost touch with. With being a Maternity Nurse, a Career Nanny and Estate/House Manager, we can spend our time doing what we love the most, this includes: nurturing, loving, teaching, laughing, play games with, traveling with, doing arts and crafts, reading, snuggling, singing, dancing and going on new adventures with Children and do it all in the same way we would as if they are our own children and family.
As a nurse & nanny, estate & house managers and the former co-owners of one of the higher end infant child care centers (it is still open and running (we sold it in March of 2008), We are very confident that we can not only meet your job requirements but, can surpass your expectations. We need virtually no direction as long as the lines of communication are always a priority and that they stay open mutually with everyone involved. Consistency and open communications make things operate much smoother.
We are well educated & diverse individuals who have traveled to Europe, the Caribbean, and many wonderful destinations in the US. We are confident, outgoing, honest & loyal. We are seeking a specific type of position with a family that only wants the best care for their children and the family as a whole. We are interested in securing a position as either Nannies, Newborn Nurse and/or Estate Managers/Caretakers. We would also be very happy to have the positions combined! We take our profession as nannies seriously & intend to use all of our skills & education to enrich your children/child‘s lives. We have extensive experience with newborns and multiples as well as having experience with older kids up to age 21 living in the home. What we are looking for is a family that is willing to take us on as full time nannies or newborn nurse with full Estate/house management duties or as a “Couple” who can assist you in the care for your estate whether you are home or away.
It is imperative for us to become part of the family to the point where we blend in so well you forget we are your Nanny/Estate/House Managers or Caretakers.
We put every effort into our work to help with anything that is needed as things come up in every family situation. We want you to feel secure enough in knowing that We will love and care for your entire family as if they are our own family. In return we only ask for communication, mutual respect, honesty and a trustworthy bond between us all. We are looking for a long term commitment. We want to be there with you, and to share in the joys of watching your children grow and to also have the opportunity to watch your family grow! We love starting with a new family and watching the children grow into healthy, strong and fantastic young people.
We live by a strong and moral code of ethics and when we are working with children, we work even harder to live by that code because they take in everything: what we do, the inflection in our voices, how we behave in public, what we wear, our over all appearance, how we speak, the words that we use, how we respect and treat others and their belongings and so on. Our priority at all times is the best interest of the children. When we come into a family we become a team working to raise strong, loving, compassionate, confident, and spiritual individuals who have strong moral character and are not just who they are as people in the universe but also who they represent as a reflection of the people who are building their moral character and guiding them towards that path that has been cleared for them to attain their life choices and dreams. As an adult and as role models we have a personal responsibility to seize on those important teaching moments in life to explain the lesson as it applies to the rules of life and to be accountable for one's own actions. We all have lessons to learn from and things to work on and for us the best thing that keeps us in check and humble is that we are blessed with the opportunity to make a positive impact or to change the course of a child's life and if we do not take it at the right moment, the results can be devastating for a child and family.
Our job is such that it is a lifetime commitment because we try to make ourselves available at all times so that there is trust and consistency. If we can help a child tap into that part of themselves where they have an Ah-Ha moment and have realized that they and only they have the power to change their own behaviors and that they are in control of their future, then we want to be there to help them and provide them with the appropriate tools and coping mechanisms that we know they have in them to deal with those difficult situations, changes and moral issues . That is why we make ourselves available to the children we work with and also remain involved with these kids to offer support and guidance even after we have moved on to a new family.
It is a mission of ours to send the message to parents, grandparents, friends, teachers, counselors, religious counsel and extended family to support all children as they grow to become the people they dream themselves to be. We are confident that this is what every parent wants for their children. Our work is our life. We are ferociously protective of all the children we work with and any child that we see being treated poorly and with disrespect we take an active approach to protect that child and change the inappropriate and negative dynamic in the family setting.
Our work: It is a spiritual, joyful & emotional journey. We love that we can be observers & participants in any child’s growth & development & we are blessed to have the opportunity make a positive impact on both the parents and children's lives and their future.
We are willing to work around a family’s schedule if it is the right fit for both of us. Of course, on special occasions or vacations we would be happy to stay for weekends or extended hours as long as we have advance notice and we are available. We also understand that things come up unexpectedly and would do all that we can to accommodate your needs. We are very flexible with our time & enjoy being an extended part of the families we work with. We are also open to traveling at any time. We enjoy working with other people and being part of a team. We are very organized, clean and fastidious about most everything. We adjust well to new situations and schedules. We would love to have the opportunity to work with your family as your Nannies/Newborn Nurses/Estate Managers or Caretakers and grow with you. We love being able to work closely with children & families and enjoy being able to use our skills to provide a nurturing, supportive, safe and educational environment for children in a family setting. We look forward to speaking with you very soon! Warmest Regards, Chris M. Nickerson, RN
