Would you consider a Share a Nanny Situation:
The Nanny or Babysitter has the following experience:
I have a deep love for working with children and have over 7 years experience with ages 1 - 13. For the past two years I have been working for Nannies of the Rockies as a part-time and on call nanny for many families.Throughout my experience I have nannied in a variety of different scenarios and situations. I often watch multiple children of different ages at a time. I have done many last minute jobs where I meet the children and family the night of. I have also done long term nannying where I was able to develop a relationship with the children. The diversity of my experience has prepared me for any situation. Prior to moving to Colorado I worked at a children's museum in Philadelphia where I acted as the Dance/Movement specialist. Within this position I created and implemented dance and movement programming for children ages 2-12. I engaged children and parents in learning opportunities through play and encouraged creative and imaginative thinking. During this time I was also acting as a Nanny and babysitter as an independent contractor.
The Nanny or Babysitter has experience with the following age groups:
Infants, toddlers, preschool, kindergarten and middle schoolers.
The Nanny or Babysitter has the following interests and hobbies:
I am a singer, dancer and theater artist. I also teach somatic movement and voice and am a mediation practitioner. I have a deep passion for mind-body awareness in whatever I do in life. I love nature, any outdoor activities, animals, reading, writing, stories of any kind, working out, yoga and arts and crafts.
Level of education:
MFA from Naropa University in Contemporary Performance.
Do you have additional skills or certifications:
While working for EducationWorks I had to undergo a week of training before being permitted to work with the children. EW programs specifically target economically disadvantaged children who are typically more likely to have severe behavioral problems . The trainings involved how to manage children in escalated, violent situations and ways to redirect a child in order to avoid such outbreaks. I also attended a seminar at EW on the Hundred Book challenge and how to guide a child through various levels of reading.
Describe your childcare style:
As a performer I have a great deal of positive energy and love to play in a creative and active way. I am fun loving, goofy, compassionate and not afraid to play like a kid. I have a great deal of patience and love to listen. My warm and open-hearted nature puts children at ease and creates a familiar and comfortable environment.
What activities do you like to do with children:
I love to make up creative and imaginative games as well as singing and dancing. I enjoy playing indoor activities like board games, cooking or making arts and crafts. I'm always excited for anything outside from sports to hiking to regular old tag and am open to any new adventures that your child may love!
Why are you interested in working as a Nanny or Babysitter?
My foremost desire in life is to give back in some way and I believe working with children is one of the best ways I can do this. I have been so blessed in my life to have been influenced by so many great role models some through one time encounters, others much longer. My greatest hope is to be that role model for the children that I babysit and nanny for. On top of this passion, I feel I am very much a child at heart. I have a rooted passion for the imagination and a continuous desire to learn which is a huge part of why I love working with children so much.
What qualities are important in a Nanny or Babysitter?
I believe a nanny should have a great deal of positive energy, be caring and patient and have the ability to think on their feet. A nanny should have the leadership skills to give a child the structure they need but also have a creative and imaginative mind in order to engage with a child on their level. Most importantly a nanny should be passionate and conscious about the power they have to impact a child's life.
