Child care/Nanny, devoted to helping children think creatively, solve problems independently and respect themselves and others. Desires a role as a responsible child care giver/Nanny.
I am dependable and reliable, with personal experience of raising my own family, as well as a position as Nanny for three years for a single Mom, and two years for a teacher and her husband, a dentist. Both positions ended only when the parents moved.
I also have several years experience of teaching Sunday School and being the Nurture Chairperson of my previous church. Through that experience I learned how important it is to make EVERY SINGLE CHILD feel important and cared about.
I thoroughly enjoy engaging the children in reading, art, crafts, games, sports, etc., and am willing to care for your children/child in your home if that's best for you.
I also love pets, am currently not working, and therefore am available any days/hours.
In June, 1991, I learned that a young woman I had baby sat as a child was now not only an adult, but about to become a single Mom. I had just left working for a local Law Firm, (Hoffman & DiMuzio, of Woodbury NJ), to become a housewife, when I happened upon this position. I cared for Sean from age six weeks to almost four years, when his Mom decided he would benefit from daycare and socializing with other children. I cared for Sean in my home, even created a nursery for him, and then later a play room, since I knew his family personally. He was like my first grand child, and I'm very happy to say that at age 19, I still have contact with Sean today.
For approximately seven years I worked in the medical office for Dr. Carlino and Dr. Perin, who were Allergists and, more importantly, Pediatricians. It was a very rewarding experience because I had ample opportunity to interact with the children and their parents as well. I became known as the "Sticker Lady" because I got the idea of giving the children stickers before they left, so I had a very good rapport with both parents and children.
I began this position when Amy Barbieri was just 6 weeks old. I cared for her in my home as two of my children were then both in school and I thought it would be good for my youngest son to have a younger child in our home to help him feel less like a baby (being the only one of the siblings to not enter school yet), plus I desperately missed having more than one child at home. It worked marvelously, and the Barbieri's were happy with my ability to teach Amy, read to her, and have her interact with my four year old. It was a very good fit all around, and I grew to love her, as did my children. That position lasted for three years, and I was blessed to have the Barbieri's add a new baby boy to the mix about 18 months later. It was very difficult to say goodbye when they moved.
