My experience in childcare began as an older sister to two rambunctious brothers in a crowded New York City apartment. With guidance from my mother, a teacher of early childhood education, I got an early and firm foundation in childcare. In middle school I ventured professionally into the world of babysitting for the first time.
Over the past twenty years, I have continuously honed my skills in childcare. Working three years as an assistant teacher at the CUNY Graduate Center Child Development and Learning Center, I learned to manage a group of 10-12 nursery-aged children in a stable, structured classroom that was also fun and engaging. As a full-time nanny to a family for two years, I developed my ability to create a daily schedule that supported both consistency and flexibility in meeting the needs of a growing toddler. All the while, my parallel pursuit of arts and design helped deepen the creative space I was able to explore with children under my care. Having worked with dozens of New York families throughout my professional life, I know well the vast diversity of styles, cultures, and structures inhabiting the many apartments of the city. In entering their homes, I have readily adapted to their various preferences, but held true to my guiding ethos of creating safe, nurturing, and enriching environments in which their children may flourish.
