I am a proud mother of 5 girls, ages 21-31, so between them I have a lot of childcare experience. With that many children of my own, it's like a daycare center/preschool/school at my house. I did everything by myself from childcare to housekeeping/ cooking. In time I had enough experience at all these that I can offer services as a nanny, a tutor, house manager/personal assistant, and cook, in that order.
After having been a stay-at-home mom for 21 years, I took on a nanny position 9 years ago and have cared for 10 infants/toddlers since then. Responsibilities included everything that’s expected from an excellent nanny: care of the baby (toddler, later), bathing, feeding, walks, playground trips, reading, music class, singing, dancing, play at home, and everything related to baby care.
I believe that it is very good to give children a headstart for school by teaching them their alphabets early. (Of course, before this, I already teach them the colors, shapes, etc, in a fun way). I am proud to say that I taught my children to read before they went to kindergarten. Basically, their pre-school was at home. All of my girls have now graduated from college and gainfully employed, and we are empty nesters. Although I hold degrees in Biology and Medicine, I did not pursue them as careers, but my background in these fields helped me tremendously as I cared for my children and later when I became a nanny.
I pride myself in the fact that I dote on the children I care for. Parents can be rest assured that their children are safe, active, happy and healthy while they are under my care. Most importantly, I defer to, respect and follow parents’ instructions on childcare.
I also tutor elementary-age children in all subjects, but reading is my specialty.
I do have other interests which I can share with the children, namely, music ( singing, playing guitar, listening to music), the arts, athletics ( most sports that involve a ball), hiking, nature walks, reading, etc.
