Compassionate, Fun, And Attentive Part-Time Nanny In Woodinville
Top two comments from families and friends are that I have a maternal nature and that I am passionate about caring for children and helping them grow up in a nurturing and fun environment. Children have been my passion from the time I was old enough to hold a baby. I have journeyed through life finding opportunities to care for children and advance my knowledge and understanding of how to nurture them. These opportunities have included being a nanny for 5 families, running summer camps, working as a teacher's aide in a preschool, and caring for children from infants through 3-years-old.
For infants (ages 3 months to 16 months), my responsibilities include changing diapers, providing nurturing and protective care, feedings (bottle to first foods), cooking and serving healthy meals, age appropriate play, singing songs, reading books, playing with children's toys, daily walks to a pond, and checking in with the parents during the day (including e-mailing parents pictures of our outings).
For ages18 months to 3-years-old, my responsibilities include the same as above just more age appropriate; more physical activities, running around outside, feeding the ducks, arts and crafts, building forts, etc.
For ages 4 and 6-years-old, I let their imagination guide our play (within limits of course), and bake cookies.
For ages 7 to 12-years-old, my duties include role modeling good communication, dispelling arguments between children with non violent communication, homework help, light housekeeping, and cooking family dinners.
I love bringing a great attitude to work. I seek to develop great communication with the family and am open to feedback. I am punctual, responsible, mature and come with great experience.
Thank you for taking the time to read through my profile. I would be happy to hear from you and answer any questions you might have.
