8 yrs of experience

Born and raised on the eastern end of Long Island, I was 12 when I first began working with children as an instructor at a children’s art studio in Amagansett NY. I continued working both winter and summer classes until I was 16. Having to manage many children in such a fast-paced environment taught me at an early age how to prepare for unexpected challenges and deal with them quickly and effectively as they arise. I have past lifeguard training and am certified in all aspects of lifesaving. I am relaxed, love to have fun, artistic and family-oriented. I am a hands-on nanny who will keep your kids busy and involved during the day. My “can do” attitude and positive outlook would appeal to an active New York City family whose high expectations for a nanny will include someone who is highly organized, punctual, energetic, considerate and trustworthy. My discipline style is somewhat firm, yet gentle. I focus on respect, manners, and positive reinforcement for great behavior. I love children and enjoy working with them, taking my responsibilities very seriously.
