I am an experienced hands-on 33-year old with a great sense of humor who loves children. I believe in engaging with children and the importance of stimulating their minds, whether it be through play, music, reading, museum visits or interaction with others.
I value cleanliness & am highly organized; you’ll never come home to a dirty dish, counter, article of clothing, floor or room! :)
Ihave extensive experience with children 3 weeks – 12 years.
I currently live in the Gramercy area & have most days free until September as I am exploring new career options after having the same position for 12+ years.
EDUCATION: I graduated from Syracuse University in 2007 with a B.A., Psychology. I especially enjoyed my Child Development & Early Learning studies.
– I was employed at two different day cares, which means that my background was verified and I went through a rigorous interview process. I worked in the both the infant and toddler rooms.
– I spent a summer as a nanny for a family of 5; I began babysitting their first child when she was 5 months old & was a nanny for her & her two brothers later down the road when she was 5 1/2 years old. Her brothers were 3 WEEKS & 1 1/2 years old at the time.
– I was an after-school mentor/tutor at MacArthur Elementary School in Waltham, MA two days a week.
– I also volunteered at a women’s shelter in Syracuse, NY, where I was responsible for looking after & teaching children of all ages (2 months – 10 years) when their were unable.
I am very hands-on & love interacting with the children whether it be playing games, reading or helping with homework.
I have cared for 5 different families in Manhattan & Brooklyn as a result of this website;
UES – 3 boys; 6, 3 & 1.
UES – 1 girl; 3 months.
UWS – 2 girls (11, 8) & 1 boy (4) (and 1 huge dog!)
Brooklyn – 2 boys; 1 & 3 (and 2 large dogs)
..as well as for my friends!
I also LOVE animals so if you have a dog(s) or cat(s), it’s not a problem — it’s a welcome bonus!
