I began at age 14 as a sitter for up to 5 children at a time, and cared for children ranging from six months through twelve years of age. My responsibilities grew as I got older, grew bonds with the children and families I worked for, and some of my jobs bordered on nannying. After graduating college, I spent two years doing work other than childcare, and decided that childcare is, indeed, my niche. At that point, I became an Infant Assistant Teacher and Art Teacher at Little Friends Daycare in Ossining, NY. From there, I moved back to NYC and joined a daycare near Wall Street where I began as an Infant Associate Teacher/ Floater and progressed to become an Infant Teacher and center Art Teacher. While working at the daycare center near Wall Street, I have worked nights and weekends with the families in my class, as a sitter. I am looking to transition to a full time nanny position, preferably caring for one to three infants. At the moment, I have a client interested in hiring me as a nanny for their 12 month old, and we are searching for another family so that we may create a nanny share position.

Since I was about 13 years old, I was a reliable and trustworthy babysitter that family and friends could always count on. When I was 17 in 2008, I started babysitting my newborn sister. I watched her part-time for 2 years while my mother worked. I would feed her when she woke up, put her down for naps, change her and give her baths. Throughout the day, I would closely supervise her and feed her at her feeding times. As she got older, I would play educational games with her and take her out for walks. She is now 5 years old and I am currently living at home with her. I spend a lot of time with her, helping my mother take care of her and helping her with her homework. I read to her and sometimes put her to bed. At 19, between 2009-2010, I was a nanny for a 4-month-old baby-girl for 6 months full-time and occasionally spent nights. I would feed her when she woke up, put her down for naps, bathe her, take her for walks in the stroller and keep her on a good schedule for her parent. I would occasionally watch a 7-year-old boy while the parents went out for date night's between fall 2011 and spring 2012. I would feed him dinner, watch movies with him, do arts and crafts and occasionally take him outside. In 2011, I started to watch a 10-year-old girl while her parents went out for the night and I continue to supervise her on an on-call basis. I would play with her and we would would watch TV and have snacks. As of summer 2013, I have been an on-call nanny for 2 little boys, an 8-year-old and a 3-year-old with autism. Typically 3 times a week, mostly during the evenings and sometimes mornings/afternoons. I would make sure that they are fed and that the 8-year-olds homework is done, assisting him if he needs help. I do educational activities with the 3-year-old, teaching him how to talk and understand things. I would play games with the 8-year-old as I kept a close eye on the 3-year-old, while he usually watches TV and plays with his toys. At 8 p.m. I would make sure the 3-year-old is in his pajamas with a clean diaper, and have both kids ready for bed. I also recently watched my older cousins 8-year-old step son. I went with him and his wife on their weekend getaway to care for the young boy while they went out for the night. I am also currently on call for them as well. I am currently babysitting my cousins 6-month-old every 3 weeks on Saturday afternoons. I give her my undivided attention, playing with her, feeding and changing her.

I can honestly say my child care jobs were pleasant. (my references can attest to that) I usually moved on because my job ended...The children and family have no need for a nanny or most recently, marriage and a change of address to another state. I'm still in contact with my former families. I've always started off working with babies. Giving baths, taking care of their umbilical cord discomforts, timed meals and nap times. Some of which are logged for reference or for the new mom's aid. Maintaining proper hygiene (washing of hands as soon as you step inside and continuing throughout the day; during and after bathroom breaks, before and after food preparation were and are practiced. Preparing healthy meals, practicing proper hygiene playtime, walks in the park, visits to museums and libraries was and is a constant practice. As they grow older, playtime involves role play, board games, outside sports, park time library anything that will help stimulate interest in enjoying being alive. Proper hygiene and having good manners were and are also taught. Dealing with the children is hardly ever an issue but there is a thin line when dealing with the parents which is usually solved with mutual respect and decency. The overall goal is to help make the parents' life much easier and help with the well-being of the children.

I am currently a toddler daycare teacher, I also sub in other classrooms working with ages six weeks old to 5 years old. I am leaving my job in Armonk since I just bought a house in the Throggs Neck area and want to find something closer to home. I am CPR and First Aid certified. As well as having numerous trainings in childcare. I am also currently working on a BS in Elementry Education and Math and plan on going on towards a Masters in Special Education. Before working as a teacher, I worked as a nanny in which the children are now all teenagers but I still remain in close contact. I also worked as a afterschool counselor and helped children from ages k-5 with their homework, tutor, art projects and gym/outdoor activities. I am NOT a nanny that just sits around and plops the kids infront of the tv. I love doing projects, educational but fun activites, and being outdoors. I have a very bubbly and energenic personality. Growing up I did everything from basketball, playing the clarinet, taking dance, modeling, and being in ap art clubs. I also enjoy traveling and studied abroad in Italy for two summers and understand and speak a little bit of Italian, though it has been awhile since Ive spoken it. I enjoy seeing broadway plays and also recently completed the Tough Mudder. Being a mother myself of a well behaved five year old boy, I understand how hard it is to come home to a messy, disorganized house, so while I work during the day I am always doing things around the house to help with the transition for when you come home such as laundry, straightening up, dinner prep and children bathed.

Over the past decade, I've had the privilege to care for many infants and toddlers. Most recently, over the past three years, I've regularly cared for three sets of siblings: infants along with their older toddler siblings. I love how excited tiny ones are to navigate the world on their own. The playground is a tricky place for little ones especially when they're a bit wobbly but I've always been one step behind - going down the slides with them and climbing very tiny play sets. My daily responsibilities for past families have included doing the child’s laundry, cleaning up play areas, keeping a log of the day's activities, preparing healthy meals for little ones (conjuring up ways to get them to eat and enjoy veggies) and when they’re able – having them help in the kitchen making kid-friendly meals. I'm up for outings at the park, museums, bookstores (a personal favorite), attending music/gym classes, baking and more. I also love planning activities, taking "little adventures" around the city. In one position, I made an effort to include various forms of transportation on our trips - the East River Ferry, subways, buses, and the Staten Island Ferry. I've also enjoyed taking my charges to museums, Lincoln Center, one child's first Off-Off-Broadway show, and more. I peruse various parenting magazines and blogs in the interest of keeping the days fun, educational and new. I'm completely comfortable following a set schedule and always run any ideas/adventures by the parents before doing so. I am in the process of mastering the Spanish language, having learned the basics growing up at home. I enjoy reading bilingual children's stories to little ones when I can get my hands on them at the local libraries.
