Meet Leonita

  • Speaks English and Spanish

Hey there! Just a little about me...my name is Leonita, but everyone calls me Lily - you can too. I'm the eldest of four & also the eldest cousin on both maternal and paternal sides of the family; so as you can imagine, I've been babysitting since I turned double digits. Although I'm now older & wiser I am still super silly and active. All those childhood years of babysitting & teen-nannying were great training for when I became a mom. I am the proud mom of three beautiful & amazing human beings! I know I'm biased, but they rock! I have two biological children and one bonus child (we don't use the term "step" in our home). They have given me the MOST experience of course, and also brought soccer, cheerleading, baseball, acting classes, singing classes, and a plethora of other activities into my life and experience wheel-house. Other Read more than caring for my own three children and babysitting for family and friends I have done volunteer work for the Life is Good Kids Foundation (formerly Project Joy) festivals and events on numerous occasions, worked with children during my time volunteering at the Elizabeth Stone House (a domestic violence shelter for women & children), have nannied for multiple families, and have also worked in the Early Childhood Education field in all classroom levels (from infancy (6 weeks) to school age (6y.o). I have worked with children (and families) in many capacities for over two decades, so I have a lot of experience with a wide range of ages, siblings, and various needs. I love arts & crafts, dancing, the theatrical arts, and not to brag but I am pretty great karaoke performer...Disney movie songs are my favorite, but I look like a total dork singing The Little Mermaid songs alone - I mean, I give my all...so, cue the duo with your child(ren)! I love staying active, reading, and trying recipes I saw on HGTV (and admittedly sometimes failing - but, I can cook, so no worries lol). I am not a fan of just sitting in front of the television all day, so your kids will be exercising both their minds and bodies when I'm around (in a fun way though, I'm not a drill sergeant)! I'm a firm believer that the best way for children to learn is through play. So I always try my best to "kill two birds with one stone" - have fun AND learn something, all in one activity.
