Available in the vicinity between Port Chester, NY and New Canaan, Ct. I work full time in the school system for over 28 years. I have experience with a variety of special needs children, from ASD to Down Syndrome to Cerebal Palsy, multiples ranging from 18 months to 13 yrs and lots in between. I have some ASL experience, very basic. I volunteered at an assisted living facility in NC. I love working with children. With my own children grown, I have time on my hands. With me you can have peace of mind that your children will not only have laughs and fun but will always be in a safe environment with a caring and nurturing person. I don't mind sitting in a sandbox building castles, or getting paint under my nails.I am very creative in arts craft, dance , music. I have a reliable car with an excellent Read more and unblemeished driving record. I am available any evening and weekend except Sundays between 11- 3pm. * ALLERGIC TO CATS* * Also available as pick up/ drop off driver Do you need a personal driver for your child? Does your preteen or teen need a ride from their evening game/party back home? I work with several families, for several years, as the children's chauffeur. Good luck in your search!
