My childcare experience started in the 4th grade with two toddlers! I have truly loved children my entire life. I continued babysitting through high school; then in college had a couple live in nanny jobs. For one and a half years, I lived with a family full time - at first there was a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old; followed by a newborn. So, yes, I have had experience with infants and "multiples". After college I began my working career with the State of WA but continued in my helping fashion. I married; we got into foster care; and followed that with adoption. I also did respite care for other foster families needing a "respite". This was usually weekends. My focus has been working with special needs populations. So, I've truly done all there is. I am also a guardian to an adult with developmental disabilities.
In January of 2012 I accepted a full time nanny position with a family with a newly adopted infant. I worked for them through 2012 and due to divorce, dad and baby relocated to DC. I finished out my one year contract with them, accompanied dad and baby to DC as well. We maintain contact and plan to visit this summer! I have been with another family since January 2013 and the child is now just turning three years old. I was just informed he is be now attending preschool fulltime.
I am also a grandma to a 3 year old granddaughter who lives in Vancouver, WA. She was born six weeks early and weighed 4 pounds. She is perfectly fine now. I also recently became a grandma to a newborn boy this past November. He is currently eight months old and I had custody of him from two months through six months. I continue to have him on weekends or the occasional week day if I am free or my job allows.
I love babies and toddlers as well as pre-school ages. It is so fun to help them learn and look for fun, new, creative ways to engage their learning! I always get along with all ages of kids. I'm fun and silly all the time. I play on the floor and am interested in what they are doing and thinking.
I have tons of professional references as well as child related. I believe in being out and about experiencing what the community and world has to offer. I also LOVE dogs. I have a Havanese puppy named Jax. He is my spoiled baby. Previously I had two diabetic dogs and I gave them insulin shots for 11 years. I am now a member of the International Nanny Association.
I would love to speak with you about your needs.
