I am a career nanny with over 20 years’ experience in private homes and I have worked with a variety of families in NYC. I cared for infants, toddlers and school-age children. Childcare is my passion and I love interacting with children and watch them grow. I am adaptable, accommodating, energetic, friendly, good listener, honest, neat, organized, patient, physically fit, reliable, and intelligent. I am also very discreet, considerate and respectful. As a nanny I teach good manners and gently reinforce polite behavior. I engage children in various social, educational and playful activities. I teach them the alphabet, colors, numbers, and shapes, and together we practice reading, spelling, counting, and work on school projects. I am enthusiastic about taking children to the library and helping them pick age-appropriate books to read. I engage them in reading and storytelling, and music and arts, knowing how vitally important the intellectual motivation is to a child’s growth and development. I encourage their imagination and nurture their self-esteem, and promote their social development by scheduling and hosting playdates, picnics in the park, and friendly interaction on the playground. I give praise generously, as well as lots of hugs and kisses, especially when they are sad and need extra care and attention. I set an example of tidiness by encouraging them to clean up the toys and books together at the end of the day. We have special songs for brushing teeth and combing hair, bath time and bed time. The day ends with a great feeling that I help parents raise bright, happy, healthy, intelligent and well-mannered children who will grow into accomplished, responsible and confident individuals. I work with parents as a team by adopting their childcare philosophy as my own. I offer my expertise and opinion when asked, and take and follow directions well to maintain balance and consistency at all times. Communication is very important to me, and you will often find the photos of the children and updates on their daily activities, as well as any issues that may arise during the day, on your phone. I hope this give you an idea on what kind of nanny I am and how I can benefit your family. I look forward to meeting you!
