My name is Jeni and I am an experienced, caring, calm and playful nanny seeking a family or families to work with in empowerment and play! I have an advanced degree in Montessori Education, with 4 years Montessori classroom experience(2 years 1st to 3rd and 2 years working in environments with children ages 1-13), 6 years experience teaching music to youth, 4 years teaching meditation and conflict resolution to youth, most recently leading the children’s program at Insight Meditation Center and also working as a daytime foster friend for children with special needs for the state. I have a car, am in the process of getting re-certified in CPR and First Aid, have my food handlers permit, great references and am registered as a childcare worker with the state. I began nannying last fall and have loved helping foster a fun, safe and warm environments for children and their families.
I love outdoor play, games, integrating learning into crafts, science and art projects, singing and sharing music(I have a stockpile of child friendly instruments), sharing stories and simple snacks. Communication is very important to me, both with parents and the children. I love to work with children on developing skills to embrace and control their emotions in positive ways, helping empower children to “help them help themselves”- Maria Montessori. My ideal family would be a mix of primary and elementary age children. I’m a confident cook, firm believer in structure with flexibility and clear and open communication. I hope to hear from you soon to get to know your young ones and see if we are a good fit!!
