Meet Dagny

  • Speaks English
  • Comfortable with pets

I am a patient, fun-loving, and energetic caregiver with a background in martial arts and acting! This combination gives me the unique ability to be both disciplined and creative when it comes to childcare. I have been a nanny/babysitter here in NYC for over a year and have worked as a childcare professional in multiple contexts prior to that--from individual families to after-school programs and summer camps. I have a vivid imagination and am a skilled storyteller who loves playtime, as well as a confident cook and housekeeper. I also have two cats at home, so petcare is in my wheelhouse as well. My most recent experience includes nannying for families with children aged 2-5. I'm an expert when it comes to the after-school routine, having worked with school-aged kids several times (pickup, transport to extracurriculars, bath, dinner/meal-prep, play-time activities, etc.) and am also comfortable with all-day care for younger Read more children. While working for my martial arts studio, I supervised games and activities and taught lessons for children from the ages of 4 to 14. I also have worked as an assistant for a musical theatre summer camp with 5-7 year olds, where I led acting exercises and rehearsals for the end-of-program performance. I love working with children of all ages!
