About me

I am a compassionate, loving, flexible nanny who adores children of all ages, yet I can be firm when necessary. I have worked both part time and full time from the newborn stage up to 9 years old. I have also worked with siblings and twins and as such I have I experience with multiples. I enjoy bringing my love of art, dance, outdoors, healthy foods, great imagination, and exploration to children. Interactive choices and empowering others to be confident in their own freewill while still being respectful and honoring of those around them is key.

I love children and enjoy their company immensely, especially babies, as watching them learn and grow is fascinating. I believe in creating a positive, happy environment for my changes where they feel safe to explore and try new things. I am efficient, responsible, reliable, and flexible and love spending time outside in the park, playdates, the museum and activities of that nature. I also love listening to music, doing arts and crafts, playing games, reading stories, doing puzzles and singing and dancing along with my charges. I love the opportunity to get messy, loud and energetic with children and we clean up afterward, knowing that we had a good, full day.


I have professional child care experience with...

  • Infants
  • Toddlers
  • Preschoolers
  • School-aged (K-5)

I will be SmartSitting while...

When I'm not working with kids I'm usually checking out new authors, going for walks in new places and also playing the steel drums. I'm also currently registered for school to get a degree to help with my goal of opening a school so will also be working on assignments!

In 5 years, I hope to be...

I hope to open a school with a few of my like minded friends for children ages 2 to 5, that has music and art as the main focus. Something along the line of the Brooklyn Preschool of Science.

Activities & skills I love to teach & share with children...

I share my love of music with children and tend to play all genres when they're with me. I hope to expose them to different sounds. I have also from time to time brought my instrument to work to teach the children some basic steel drum skills.
