My name is DeBorah and I am offering on-call, back-up and temporary childcare.
I have exceptional references, 10+ years of experience working with children ranging from newborn to early teens, about 6 years of study in Child/Adolescent Development and Psychology and I absolutely love working with families! I have worked as a Live-In, Live-Out, Travel Nanny and Household Manager. Most positions I have worked included housekeeping and pet care along with transportation responsibilities. I have experience with special needs children (specifically Autism and Asperger's Syndrome), with cloth diapers, Elimination Communication, among other various "natural parenting" concepts and practices.
I'm also fluent in American Sign Language and can speak a bit of Spanish. I love making up stories, songs and games with children of all ages. I'm big into getting the kids involved in daily activities like cleaning and cooking so they learn important skills early on. I am compassionate, patient and feel the best way to support children in their journey through life is to not only be a stellar role model, but to also really get down on their level and take the time necessary to help the whole family work through the sometimes difficult to navigate stages.
While I am not available for long-term, regularly scheduled care, I am looking for families in need of a spectacular stand-in nanny, as I already work with other clients in this capacity. I am LCP certified with the state of Montana, CPR/First Aide certified, have an impeccable driving record and a clean background check. I also have a very agreeable little infant who comes along with me on every gig.
Please feel free to contact me!
