I have worked as a full time nanny with children ranging in age from infants to five years old. My first nanny experience, over ten years ago, was with triplets who were three months premature! During my time with them I not only worked the basics, feeding, diaper changing, stimulating but also helped administer physical therapy, as shown by the therapist, on a daily basis in order to help them with their physical developments. I learned how to massage and help them position their knees correctly so that they crawled the right way among other things. As they grew, it was a great joy to entertain, educate and interact with them. Our days were spent at the park, adventures while riding the Boston subway, making great music and so on. My experience with this family was wonderful and laid a solid foundation for me. I realized how much fun and learning there is in caring for children and also how rewarding it all is. Subsequent years were spent with two different sets of twins, single children, and siblings of various ages where I continued to add on to my extensive experience.
I decided to start Vacation Nanny in the Spring of 2001 after I had taken care of two beautiful children as a vacation nanny while their parents were on vacation. The ten days spent with the children were a blast, played together, grocery shopped, rolled around in the snow, cooked, read, made arts and crafts, dropped and picked up the older one from school and had fun all around. When the parents returned and it was time for me to leave, the older one gave me a hug and told me he'd had a good time with me, I replied ditto and thought to myself "I could do this all the time."
Since starting Vacation Nanny I met parents who asked if I could cater to their various childcare needs and thus added other dimensions to Vacation Nanny, baby-sitter, day/night nanny, backup nanny and travel nanny too. As the Vacation Nanny I have worked with children ranging in ages 0 to 13 years old. I am as comfortable with a newborn as with a teenager.
