Pros: full-time with weekends off.
Cons: no healthcare.
A typical day is waking up and getting the children ready. They watch a little television, have breakfast, and play for a little while. The 4 year old gets ready for preschool, I bring her. The 2 year old and 6 1/2 year old and I get back home and throughout the day we play, read and write, do art and crafts, and get some exercise outdoors. We pick up the 4 year old at school, we go to swim lessons in the afternoons and then when we get home we prepare for dinner. After dinner they take a bath, watch a movie, brush teeth, go potty and off to bed.
I learned to have patience. Also different ways to go about certain situations like teaching them how to share and respect other bodies (I.E. no hitting). I learned to ask them what they want.
Sometimes the hardest part is that it can sometimes be stressful.
The parents are great they respect me, and I get paid on a scheduled date.
The most enjoyable part of the job is connecting with the children, doing the things they enjoy, doing what I love, and seeing their smiling faces.
I love the job as a nanny and sorry it has to end when summer does. Next time I rather be a live-out nanny, but the experience was great! :)
