A little bit about me…

I have a natural tendency to nurture, motivate, and I have no issue adapting my approaches to whatever a specific child needs! I’ve spent the 5 past (pre-covid) summers caring for foster youth of all ages, backgrounds, and with varied special needs and childcare is honestly a genuine passion of mine. I come from a big family myself and being one of the eldest I have an innate tendency to truly protect and deeply care for every child I have the pleasure of knowing in my career. It’s not just a job for me, I’m aware of my impact on a child’s growth simply by being in their life. That’s why I do my best to ensure all of the things I influence children to do will carry them further in life and help them bloom into the passionate and philanthropic young adults this world needs more of. I hope I can bring my love for kids & childcare skills to your home! PS will provide reference info directly to you if requested

A little bit about me…

Hi there! I'm Shani. I am lovable, I love kids and they love me! I am firm, but always fair giving love, affection and positive affirmation. I am a DONA trained PostPartum Doula, great with premature babies, newborns & twins. I can also help with potty training. I do my best to keep the television off, get out of the house & story time. I am looking to be part of a family not just an employee. I want a family that will embrace me as I will embrace them. I have excellent references from families upon request and you can call me anytime. In cases of financial hardship, I will work with families. You will never have to worry about your kids when they are with me. I am also available for fun babysitting and night care.

I will provide 2 references, do meal prep for the children, open for travel and take care of light house keeping as it pertains to the child. ie: Bottle washing, cleaning up toys etc.

I must be clear, I am not a housekeep.

Fun fact: I grew up on a tour bus.
