Dear Family, Hello. I have worked as a professional nanny for 18 years and am currently seeking a full time position.
Currently, I am a nanny for a family in Nyack and take care of 8 year old and 4 year old boys. Prior to this family, I worked with two families and started with the families when their children were newborns.
I believe that my love of working with children was born from helping my mother with the children she took care of at our home when I was growing up. I began babysitting at the age of 12 and eventually became known as our neighborhood babysitter. I had watched children that were newborn to age 12. At the age of 22, I continued my love of childcare and became a professional nanny. It is my belief that all children deserve to be loved, protected, and respected as individuals. I feel that my most important job is to teach them to make good choices for themselves. I think that this is most effectively accomplished by working with the parents as a team to provide clear boundaries and rules of acceptable behavior. Communication and consistency are vital components in this relationship. As a nanny, I would be part of the family team providing for child's emotional, physical, educational, social and recreational needs.
Being a nanny is not something taken lightly: it is a profession unlike any other. I started my journey in the field 18 years ago and have had the privilege of working with two wonderful families in upstate New York and currently, the family in Nyack I have taken college classes in early childhood. I stay up to date with the latest childhood developmental theories, educational toys and by reading relevant books and magazines. I belong to the Nanny Alliance of New York and New Jersey. Through this group I have had the opportunity to attend seminars and also network. The nanny profession is most perfectly suited to my interests, abilities and temperament. I hope this letter has given you a better insight to who I am. I am sincerely looking forward to speaking to you.
