Hi I'm Lydia! I just moved to New Orleans from Philadelphia. I live in Midcity with my sister, who is a nursing student, and our two adorable kitties. I have a background in Neuroscience and worked in a lab studying sleep for several years after finishing my degree. Over the last 2 years, I've provided childcare to several different families in the Philadelphia area, working with children between the ages of 3 months- 9 years old. I began babysitting in high school and continued to do so throughout college. I have additional childcare experience through volunteer work with the Philadelphia Childcare Collective which provides free childcare in support of grassroots and activist groups. I love playing with kids and connecting over our shared interests whether that is an art project, a science and nature walk, reading a really great book, or running around outside. I also have infant experience and Read more absolutely love to spend time with babies and toddlers. I'm happy to answer any more questions you have about me or my experience and my childcare references are available upon request!
