About me

I'm a nanny that loves to work with both parents and children. I have been working with children all my life. Even volunteering when I graduated from high school to teach at my local pre-k. Now that I am a mother and have a full-time career as a nanny I have little time to volunteer but still try my best to help my community anyway I can. Over the years I've developed a passion for dancing and performed at various events. I love bringing this side of me when working. A dance party can make everyone a little more happy. Being a nanny is just my lifestyle, when I'm not working I catered to my nieces and nephews. I've worked with kids professionally from newborn to teens.

I love to help mothers / new mothers transition into full-time work. Over the years I've gained the knowledge and the skill on how to sleep train a new born and how to negotiate and gain the attention from toddlers. Stimulating the mind of toddlers and reading to babies are just some of my favorite things to do.

Because I don't like sitting around much, I like going for walks, going to the playground, libraries, classes etc. I have a little over 10 yrs of experience! I'm pretty laid back, but fun, lovable, caring and can be stern when needed. I try my best to help my family throughout the day with errands and light chores. I also try to keep up with the latest gadgets and apps to help with the daily routine. I look forward to meeting a great family soon!

l would like to have my qualification in being a baby nurse. I am always trying to improve myself as a nanny.

Activities & skills I love to teach & share with children...

When taking care of a baby I always love to read to them, reading everyday to them are very important to me. Just taking them outside helps to stimulate their minds. As the babies gets older we start naming body parts, playing color, shapes, numbers, letters games or puzzles etc. I love teaching them manners, respect, independence and having fun!!!
