Hello! My name is Lea, and I live in Brooklyn. I have an associates degree in communication and have taken several child care classes as electives in my program. I've been babysitting (up to five children at a time) ranging in age from infancy-pre teens for 8 years, have worked extensively with special needs children, and have been nannying exclusively for well over two years now. I moved to New York in September of this year and am looking for a new childcare position starting as soon as possible!
I always helped out at home with my younger brothers and was lucky enough to grow up in a neighborhood that had a lot of babysitting opportunities. I started babysitting neighborhood kids at 13, and after high school decided that it was something I wanted to do on a more full time basis.
I aim to work with children and their families to come up with ideas that enhance everyone's daily lives. Simple ideas like sticker charts, coming up with weekly menus for dinner, and planning activities for the week to create a sense of structure are all things that I have done with families that have employed me in the past.
