Hi there! I'm Claire; a proud Texas native and a recent graduate of NYU Drama. I have worked as a part-time nanny in NYC for families of varying sizes all around the city for the past few years. Since graduation, I have been a working and auditioning actress(you may have seen me on a TV show) and day to day I love being a nanny! I was a very energetic and creative child growing up(as was my younger sister) and I grew up in a big southern family with cousins all around.
I moved to NYC for college and I've worked as a part-time nanny in NYC for families all around the city during college and beyond. I've primarily cared for elementary and middle school aged children. I usually do after school positions.The youngest age I have cared for is 3 years old with the oldest being 13 years old. My most recent position was caring for two children ages 10 and 13. I picked them up everyday after school and took them to their various extracurricular activities. I cooked for the family most nights, cleaned the apartment and helped them with their homework. I also got to care for their adorable cat! During breaks and holidays I worked for them full time. I'm very proud that I helped these kids foster a real love to reading and brought them out of their shell. I have experience working with children on the autism spectrum and children with severe allergies. I am also great at helping with homework(particularly english, history and anything music related).
Caring for children brings me a lot of joy! I am extremely dedicated, patient, punctual and nurturing. I am an artistic and creative person and I like to incorporate that into childcare. l love to help children discover their artistic sensibilities. I always put safety first. I think one of my greatest strengths as a nanny is being able to stay on schedule, and still make things fun for the kids. It's important to me to keep an open dialogue with the parents and stay on the same page in regards to discipline. I really love being a nanny and I value my relationships with the parents and the children. Family is very important to me and I want to help make yours a little less stressful!
