  • keeping the kitchen, playroom, and children’s bedrooms tidy

My Responsibilities
I am responsible for full care of the twins.  That includes the basics like meal planning, online grocery shopping, cooking healthy and tasty kid meals, and eating lunch and dinner with the boys; children’s laundry, keeping the kitchen, playroom, and their bedrooms tidy, rotating clothes, organizing closets, and driving to/from preschool and other activities.  I was also responsible for their whole child development including developing a home-based forest education program, planning and engaging them in child-inspired school-readiness activities, and working closely with their therapists and implementing therapy plans at home.

Ages I Cared For
I care for twin boys; they were 18 months when I started and are now almost 5. 

Special Needs or Circumstances
Both boys have special needs.  One is on the autism spectrum and one has a language delay.

A Sampling of My Accomplishments from this Position
The parents and I have accomplished a lot working together. 

I’m particularly proud that I was able to do the majority of the potty training of both boys even though each was reluctant and had their challenges. 

I’ve also helped them come out of their shell and learn the social skills needed to make new friends and feel confident in groups. 

The parents and I have developed a great working relationship and I’ve supported them through learning about and tackling the boys’ diagnoses.  They’ve often said how much they appreciate the observations journal I keep to help everyone stay on the same page around the boys’ therapies, progress, and challenges.

Why I’m Leaving the Position
The boys are entering a full day kindergarten program starting in the fall so I won’t be needed for a full-time position.

A Few Interview FAQs

I’m crazy about my dog, Daisy, I’m a friendly-introvert, independent, a great communicator, have a dry sense of humor, all about raising emotionally capable kids, and a to be honest, a not-so-great cook.  Although I do great with kid food!    

I’m passionate about creating a safe space where kids feel loved, secure, and accepted for who they are.  Where they can learn the skills of high emotional intelligence and connected communication.  Where curiosity, kindness, belief in yourself, and respect for others are valued and nurtured.  I believe when kids don’t follow rules or they blow past limits, it’s because they’re trying to get their needs met in inappropriate and ineffective ways. I believe my job is to help them figure out what those needs are, learn how to process and manage the big emotions that come with them, and then do things differently in the future or in other words, “make good choices”.  So my discipline approach is really the same as my big picture approach.  Challenging behaviors are just another learning opportunity.

Top Things I Bring to My Job

Child-Related Skills

I took a deep dive into baby led weaning when I was caring for a 6 month old in a previous nanny job.  We had transitioned into solids but the baby wasn’t thrilled with the homemade purees.  Both the mom and I had heard a little bit about baby led weaning so we decided to give it a try.  I jumped in and read multiple books, listened to podcasts, took an online course, participated in discussion groups, and started experimenting with presenting foods that appealed to his taste buds and also engaged him in the experience of eating.  Through my research and hands-on experience, I learned all the dos and don’ts and lots of tricks along the way.  I’ve introduced BLW to 2 additional nanny families and to several of my friends that have infants.  Here’s a great article if you’d like to learn more about it.
