Samriti M. - Seeking Work in North Kingstown

14.28 / hour

I have experience both with child care and with tutoring, which allows me to better help with school and summer work. I worked as a nanny for a local family for two and half years, both during the summers and during my winter breaks from college. I provided after-school care during school months, including help with homework. I then transitioned to summer care. After-school care entailed helping with homework, getting a snack, and fun activities after homework was finished. During the summers, we would go to the beach, play outside, read, bake, and do arts and crafts. I was also responsible for picking up from school and transportation to and from summer camps, practices, doctor's appointments, etc. That family also had a dog, so I am very comfortable with animals. I ensured that the dog was walked and fed. I also spent part of the summer taking the dog to and from physical therapy. Previous to this nanny position, I was a babysitter for a local family. I babysat them at night as well as overnight. I tutored these same children for four years, so I was also with them during the day. I also spent time a few summers ago dog-sitting for a local family, so I am very pet-friendly. While most of my professional experience is with children in the 7-14 age range, I do have many young cousins.

Hi, my name is Jen! I am 26 years old and a graduate from Lesley University. I have my B. S. in Expressive Arts Therapy and Holistic Psychology. My expressive therapy and holistic background shine through in childcare because I encourage children to be involved in the arts, to express themselves through whichever means are accessible, and have a deeper connection to the world around them. I have eleven years of experience caring for children between the ages of 2 and 25, both in clinical and home-care settings. I am up to date with first aid and CPR training and have also been trained as a classroom behavioural specialist where I have experience working with children who are on the Autism spectrum, have developmental delays, and/or have behavioural issues. This technical training along with my holistic psychology background allows me to set clear expectations for kids while also coming from a very understanding/empathic place. Please feel free to message me with any questions or requests!
