Eileen’s Bio

Hi there! My name is Eileen. I have lived in Weehawken, NJ for 10 yrs. I have been a nanny since 2009 having worked for five families. One of them for two years full time and the others part time. Infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Getting them to school, changing diapers, day trips, refereeing sibling arguments, time outs, ... you name it! And I have learned from them just as much as they have learned from me.
I am an actor who has traveled all over working for many regional theatres. I have also performed for an educational children's theatre program in DC in which we instructed children in elementary and middle schools. While living in DC, I taught theatre to kids, ages 4 thru 15 in four different schools.
Also I have 5 brothers, 1 sister, 6 nephews and 1 niece (finally!). I am familiar with the noice, sibling rivalry, children's messes and  their joy of discovery; it reminds me of home.
Currently looking for a summer into fall 2015 position. (Occasional date nights) Preferably in the Weehawken, Edgewater, Gutenberg, Hoboken, Jersey City, and West New York NJ areas. But will also consider mid-town Manhattan.

I have been extremely happy having Eileen babysit regularly for my 5 year daughter. She has the ability to nurture and engage my child in creative activities, while at the same time sticking to the rules and expectations I've laid out.

We have been able to trust her with pick ups from school, homework assistance, and bedtime rituals without a second thought. She did a spectacular job with those particular tasks when I was out of town for a week.

I also appreciate the fact that she is able to fill me in on things that happened during her babysitting that I should know, whether they are just funny instances of play, or clues that my daughter might be having a problem with something. She is genuinely interested in the life of my child!

Wonderful and caring; Mary Poppins-like

We have been very fortunate to have met Eileen. She has helped to babysit my 2 older children (6 and 4 y/o) and essentially help raise my youngest son since he was a month old. I had no worries leaving the 3 of them with Eileen. She is very nurturing and loving to them all. One of the many examples is that she would often hold my infant and sing him to sleep or just to help calm him; Eileen is an actress so she has a beautiful voice!

With the 2 older children, Eileen always kept them engaged with fun activities including arts and crafts and taking them outside to the playground. She was also able to keep track of their busy schedules: picking and dropping off at school, helping with homework, shuttling them to their extracurriculars and playdates; all while also keeping me in the loop with texts and pictures of their day! She was a second mom to the kids while work kept me busy; I could tell she loved them as much as they loved her. Importantly, I was able to leave for the day knowing that everyone at home was well cared for. I felt lucky to come home feeling relaxed that the kids had a great day!
