*2010
I have been a Nanny for the Mothercraft employee agency since 2007 and have worked for numerous families with children under the age of 5. I am willing to work with families of children with Special Needs, especially, those with Autism. I have gained some insight and strategies through my employment at Giant Steps (A leading school for children with Autism). However, working with developing children is my preference. My enthusiasm for children is highlighted by my willingness to aide parents in assisting, organizing and running children’s birthday parties for the families I have been employed by.
