I am a loving, caring, and reliable caregiver with 15+ years experience in Early Child Care. Caring for children has been the joy of my life. I have build so many wonderful friendships with the families that I have worked for over the years.
I began my child care experience teaching vacation bible school at the age of 17 as part of a summer camp program. While attending college, I taught for several years in a preschool setting with children ages 3 months to school age. For the past 8 years I have been employed as a full-time and part-time nanny for six wonderful families. My first nanny job was with a loving family with two boys ages 3 months and and 5. The eldest of the two boys was a student in my class and a pleasure to have. My second nanny position was a part-time after school care for a little girl 8 years of age. She enjoyed music as much as I did. I continued on as a full-time nanny for a little girl 4 years of age. I was with this family for a short period of time, this position was temporary. My last two nanny positions where with two great families. I looked after two girls ages 4 and 6 and two boys ages 9 months and 2.
I am currently a part-time student at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. My field of study is Massage therapy in pediatric care. I hope to work for a children's hospital as a massage therapist/ physical therapist. Choosing to specialize and become trained in pediatric massage therapy can truly change a child's life through the power of touch.
I have a true talent as a singer. I started as a soprano singer in my church choir at the age of 14. I have also competed in several talent competitions over the years, as well as sing in the gospel choir. I enjoyed playing the guitar while singing educational and enjoyable songs for my preschool classes. As a nanny I also sing songs and play age appropriate music throughout the day, I find music to be very therapeutic. Music releases happy endorphins and puts a smile on a child's face.
I am a fun and energetic caregiver who enjoys planning stimulating activities that are educational and age appropriate, especially music and singing! I love interacting with children of all ages and I enjoy keeping a home tidy and organized. It has been a very fulfilling experience to be a positive influence in a child's life. I have enjoyed being a full- time/ part-time nanny for the wonderful families that took me into their home and treated me as a respected employee and part of the family.
