Shanika’s Bio

I am a Certified Baby Nurse and Certified Nanny with my CPR certfication as well. I also have a degree in Early Childhood education with hopes of opening my own pre-school in the near future. I have 10+ years experience as a nanny and 8 years experience as a baby nurse. I believe in positive reinforcement, providing developmentally appropiate activities, reading, going on trips or adventures and providing a stable, nurturing and safe environment at all times. To me childcare is not a job, children are my heart. I have a love and passion for children of all ages that is unexplainable. I have always had a natural gift for connecting with children. At 16 years old my mom's friends trusted me to take care of their newborns for the weekend. When it comes to children, it is a great joy of mine to nurture and tend to them. I do so without yelling or spanking and by being a good example and role model. I prefer to be with families long-term because it promotes healthy attachment & bonding but also because I would love to become part of the family and not just an employee. 

I am responsible, trustworthy, dependable, silly, nurturing, kind, a child at heart, a multitasker and a self-starter and motivator. I've interned in Early childhood settings, day care centers, nursuries and hospitals for a total of five years. I have no limitations to the amount of tasks I can handle as well as no allergies to pets. (I love pets also!) I come from a family of nurses, nannies, and baby nurses. I learn from and work closely with my grandmother, who is a certified baby nurse specializing in twins & triplets. She is also my role-model!

I also have a suggested baby list, layette list, and equipment list designed for a newborns arrival or a new mommy. I have many references, all of which are available and have nothing but good things to say about me. I believe I am a great candidate for any family who is looking for a peace of mind when it comes to their children and their home!

Shanika used to be our sitter whom we found right here on sittercity. we moved to the suburbs and had to loose her but we all were very sad to see her go as we had FINALLY found a winner. Shanika was trustworthy, responsible and very attentive to our son. She worked with him when he had problems with remebering colors and numbers and made learning like a game without us having to keep asking her to be participative in this area. We continue to speak and see her as often as we can when we are in the city. She would be an asset to any family.
