Are you a family who currently has personal issues that make finding a nanny difficult (separations, foster care, addiction recovery, etc.) 

Then you have stumbled across the right nanny page!

My Services Include:

Quality child care 

· A well-rounded, fun, age appropriate schedule for the child (emphasis on fun and educational!). Focus in life skills, social skills, parallel and cooperative play;  engagement through reading and storytelling will occur. Your child’s  abilities will be highlighted and deficiencies strengthened.

·  Communication style will encourage respect and growth. 

· Celebrating the child for who they are  (stimming included)

· Unconditional love and nurturing.   

· Behavioral/Discipline:
· Spanking, yelling and other  punishments are forbidden. Even time outs are usually forbidden. I use alternative methods (redirection, planned ignoring of negative behavior when applicable, teaching coping techniques, etc.).

· If I am being hired specifically to work with a child or children who have behavioral concerns due to my experience, education and training,  there is an expectation that I will be taking the lead on the behavioral issues (i.e. finding out the function of the behaviors, etc.)  I WILL keep the parents informed of what I am doing and why at all times.

· I will also provide “teaching” sessions for the family upon request to ensure everyone can implement the same strategies. 

· Personal Care:  
· Personal hygiene (hand washing, etc.), Dressing, bathing

· Potty training if applicable

· I will handle the child’s meals when on duty, as well as the child's laundry, and keep toy/child's areas picked up and organized

· I will keep my infant/child CPR and First Aid /AED certifications up to date, and will get the Flu shot when available.

· Will provide any other care the parents request, as long as it relates directly to the child or is in the child's best interest. 

What I will not do:

· I will not judge the family nor its members. 

· I will not judge the child or children.

· I will not spread personal family information outside of the house (and am willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement as part of my contract.)

· I will not eavesdrop, or in any way violate the privacy of the family I work for. 

What I will do:

· I will provide quality care for your child/children and your family

· I will provide support, or find the resources to accommodate the needs of the child and family

· I will provide stability and love to your child/children and family

· I will make a positive difference in the lives of your children and your family.
