When I go to work everyday I have the opportunity to play. How cool is that? It's an amazing experience being a nanny and having the honor and privilege to see children progress and grow up. I have experience as a Daycare Provider with age groups of infants, babies, toddlers, and nursery aged children. As a Nanny I've worked with elementary-aged children, pre-teens, kindergarten and nursery-aged children.
The most important thing I bring to a child's life is helping provide the support and structure they need to make the right decisions in their lives and organize their time. I am a real maven at keeping kid's on track and on schedule and am extremely organized. I love to foster an environment of learning, fun and exploration through educational games, make believe and sometimes good old fashioned running around and playing!
I grew up in New York City and have a business and hospitality background. In my spare time I love trying out new restaurants or seeing live music. I have a great eye and have helped families entertain by setting spreads, bar tending or creating a beautiful table-scape. As a native New Yorker I know this town like the back of my hand and if I'm with a child and our train skips a stop I don't flinch and problem-solve in real time. I like to involve children in everything we do: I help them navigate meal-times and healthy food recipes, I let them take ownership of setting their things aside for school the next day, if we're commuting we discuss where we are going and how we are getting there. I have a real "team" attitude when it comes to child-care while still maintaining authority and allowing children to feel protected and at ease.
