My past childcare experience: My name is Nadia (rhymes with Maria.) I am a California native and love this beautiful state! I have one sister with whom I have a close relationship... and who also is a professional nanny. Being a first generation German/Georgian American (that's Gerogia / Sakartvelo the country... not the state) I grew up with a great appreciation of the various cultures from around the world. My parents were proud to be American citizens and instilled this patriotism in my sister and I. My family means the world to me and I enjoy keeping in touch with all my relatives here in the U.S., as well as England, Germany, Switzerland, and the Republic of Georgia. I was brought up appreciating the beauty of California visiting ranches on Sonoma County Farm Trails, beaches, Napa & Sonoma wineries, snow in the Sierras, camping, fishing, boating on Clearlake, or just visiting local neighborhood parks. Even a walk around the block after a holiday feast has always been a way our family enjoys spending time together as we laugh, talk, stretch our legs, and get some fresh air. I have been working the past year for an OB/GYN & RN looking after their daughter from the age of 12 to now 26 months. Unfortunately due to big changes coming about with their careers/needs we are sadly parting ways the beginning of December 2015. My background in childcare started in junior high at my mother's home daycare center where I would assist her after school. The children ranged in age from infant - early elementary years. I helped with snack time, arts & crafts, games, songs, story time and general playtime. I also worked weekends and evenings as a very busy neighborhood babysitter all throughout high school. During high school I was also a paid Sitter for xx weekly choir practices. The children ranged in age from infant - 3 years. During the summer my sister and I provided childcare at our home which included swimming lessons. While at Santa Rosa Junior College I was a xx camp counselor at xx in the summer and the xx during school holidays. After Junior College I was a nanny to 2 Sonoma County families through xx. Both families were business owners with 2 boys. We enjoyed outings to Sonoma County points of interest, neighborhood parks, state parks, events, festivals, the library, museums, etc. along with appreciating a wide variety of music and the arts. Over the years I've also cared numerous times for my 3 nephews and friends children from infancy - early teens, including overnight, weekend, and week long care, looking after the pets and house as well. As mentioned previously I'm currently a full-time, live-out nanny who's searching for a new situation and am able to make a 1-5 year commitment to the right family. I also fill in occasional weekends providing "Nanny/Sitter For The Day" services to Sonoma County families and visitors to the wine country. It can be anything from looking after 1 toddler for an evening to 6 tweens at the pool while their parents tour the wineries for the day. I am TrustLine Certified xx & International Nanny Association Member I accept jobs within walking distance of a bus stop as I rely on public transportation. I do however have a valid CA Driver's License, clean driving record and am able to operate ANY type of manual or automatic vehicle (if a family vehicle is provided and/or required for the day.) PDF files of my Resume, Recommendations, California DMV Record, Background Check & Rates can be readily e-mailed for your review.
Additional Comments: I enjoy an eclectic array of music, theater, the arts, dance, foods & cultures of people around the world, bird feeding, amusement parks, folk & fairy tales from around the world, collecting seashells, art glass, and had a pet dwarf hotot house-rabbit for over 10 years. I enjoy visiting the library as well as introducing children to the wonder of books. I love encouraging kids to step away from their TV & computer (the exception - educational and/or PBS shows) to instead entertain themselves with arts, crafts, games, hobbies, sports, and just general outside play. I am an avid walker. In my free time I have volunteered with the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life, as well as helping with my high school's Alumni Association. I understand the requirements of families with busy careers and social obligations who's desire is to spend maximum quality time with their children, but need a little assistance in order to bring that about. So, if you can use someone who is hard working, reliable, punctual, levelheaded and calm under pressure. Who has the maturity to fully appreciate the hardest job there is; child care. Who has experience from potty training through the teen years. Who will encourage young minds to grow, little bodies to be active, appetites to appreciate healthy food, and characters to strive to be honest and true. Who is more than just a sitter, who with my receptionist/administrative skills can act as a fabulous family/personal assistant, Girl-Friday, or household manager. Who is neat and organized, enabling you to come home to a tidy house after a long day. Who is fun-loving, upbeat and always sees the beauty in day-to-day life. Enjoys travel and is willing/able to accompany your family anywhere desired. Who is able to operate any type of manual or automatic vehicle to transport your children. Who is creative, enjoys music, the arts, books, the outdoors, wildlife, walking, crafts, cultures and foods of other countries, and is always open to learning something new, then I'm your gal. I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry. I would appreciate the opportunity to interview as I am certain that a face-to-face meeting would more fully reveal my positive attitude and ability to meet your expectations. For your convenience in meeting me I can be reached via Skype. Thank you for your time and consideration. I eagerly look forward to speaking with you!
