Meet Vashni

  • Comfortable with pets

I have been a babysitter for more than ten years. I enjoy arts and crafts, hunting bugs and role playing. I know every child is a unique individual, therefore I give the kids in my care the opportunity to initiate the activities that they may want to do. I believe there must be respect not only between the parents and myself, but also between the child and I. I have a firm approach to discipline while remaining gentle.

Vashni has cared for our children for 2 years, starting when our two children were 2 and 5. She has taken amazing care of our children. To name a few feats, she potty trained our youngest, remote schooled Pre-K, K and 1st grades, watched two active children at once, managed different daily pick-up drop off schedules at different locations, made sure they ate healthy snacks/foods, took them to lots of fun field trips via the subway, and was wonderfully carefree/playful with them. Vashni’s strengths include her patience (especially in handling a toddler), her warmheartedness, ability to play with young children, reliable, trustworthy, punctual, openness to a parent’s suggestion/request and flexibility. Vashni is in amazing shape and can chase down any toddler for hours. With two young children home schooling and two working parents at home, Vashni was a treasure to have in a small apartment. We are parting ways since we no longer need a caregiver every day. We highly recommend her.

Vashni has cared for our children for almost 6 years, starting when our two children were 6 and 8. She has taken amazing care of our children, taking them to activities, feeding them dinner, and helping with homework. She is very energetic, calm, kind, loving, and an excellent communicator. They are now of the age where they can be more independent, and we no longer need a caregiver every day. We highly recommend her.

We have worked with Vashni for several months and think she is wonderful. She has a lovely calm energy and our kids (toddler and newborn) love her. It has been great to have her in our family. We very highly recommend her.
