I have a little over 17 years of professional child care experience. I also have 10 nieces and nephews, so I'm tested (and tested and re-tested) and resoundingly kid-approved. I have experience caring for children of all ages, from infant to young teens. I am CPR and First Aid certified, with a good head on my shoulders. I am patient, competent, creative, kind, intelligent, and take my occupation to heart. I love to sing, read and do arts and crafts with kids. I enjoy taking field trips with children to museums, aquarium, libraries, and various play spaces. In nicer weather, I prefer to spend as much time as possible outdoors, exploring the parks and any other fresh air venue that NYC has to offer.
In the past, I have worked in Park Slope, Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill, Ft. Greene/Clinton Hill, and Red Hook, as well as in Staten Island, and am familiar with all of these neighborhoods and the extracurricular activities and opportunities for enrichment available to children in the area. I have also made regular trips into the city for events and classes, and am comfortable both driving and navigating public transportation.
