As a dynamic individual I've enjoyed various forms of employment throughout my life but, my favorite has always been with childcare services. From a young age, I Ioved serving as a role model and continue to do so as an adult. Children are an integral part of our society and I take my time spent with them seriously. It is much more than a job to me. I love being a source of inspiration for them, and they often do the same for me. It is a mutually beneficial relationship.
My philosophies on childcare focus on three key aspects. First and foremost, children should be led by great example and it is crucial that their caregiver understands that they are part of the foundation for their success. Secondly, I believe that children should remain autonomous but, with limitations. Children need independence but, also someone to help them successfully navigate their world. This requires compassion, respect, and boundaries which establishes a healthy balance. Lastly, I believe that they need variety in order to help them develop physically, cognitively, emotionally, and socially.
As the oldest of five children my childcare experience began at an early age. Beginning in 2010, I worked at the Association for Children with Down Syndrome for three years. Lastly, I began working as a nanny in 2015, here in NYC. As a result, I've accumulated 7 years of professional childcare experience.
My passions are singing and fitness. My hobbies include reading and appreciating the culinary and cultural aspects of NYC. These activities benefit my role as a caregiver because I am a well rounded, intelligent individual with a zest for life. I seek to teach, inspire, and have fun with what I do.
