Hello! My name is Stephanie and I am an experienced babysitter and childcare provider for kids ages 5-14 and have worked with special needs children and young adults ages 5-24. For the past two years I served as a regular after school sitter for an 11 year old boy with special needs I was matched with through SmartSitting. We had so much fun together, whether we were just riding the bus after school to all his activities, taking his dog on walks, or playing on the playground. Through working with him and other kids around NYC in the SmartSitting network, I have become very comfortable taking kids on public transit, assisting with light housework and meal prep, and helping with homework. In addition to babysitting my own siblings, cousins, and children in the neighborhood since middle school, I have worked at day camps and sleepaway camps for seven years and worked as an after school counselor at the JCC Pittsburgh while I was in college. I am comfortable with children of all ages and abilities and have beginning experience with sign language and am an intermediate Hebrew speaker.
