My name is Shera Weintraub. I am a student at Lesley University where I am working towards my Masters in Art Therapy. I live walking distance to both Porter Square and Davis Square. I have morning-afternoon availability Wednesdays and Thursdays (until about 230/3), starting mid January. I have had a bunch of childcare experience in nannying, babysitting, and as a camp counselor at day and sleep away camps. I have been babysitting since age 14. I have babysat for multiple families, each with 2 or 3 children, aged 1-13. I have worked with both girls and boys in all the age groups. I have experience watching children, school pickups/dropoffs, meal prep, homework help, and nighttime rituals (baths, bed, story time...). As a counselor, I was responsible for campers aged 3-13 throughout the day. This included supervision, cleanups, activities, and meals. I enjoy being outdoors, reading, arts and crafts, and making Read more up stories. I love helping children learn, play, and grow. I am more than happy to help out with meal prep and light housework as well. I am currently CPR and first aid certified.
