Larissa’s Bio

Hello! I am a career nanny living in Brooklyn looking for a family that's the perfect fit. I have over ten years of experience nannying for children of all ages including infants, twins, and multiple children. Previous to my nannying positions I've also babysat and camp counseled. The bulk of my experience has been with infants and toddlers but I am open to caring for older children, as well. One can never have too much experience when it comes to something as important as childcare!

Taking care of young children, especially babies, is rewarding but sometimes challenging. Over the years, I have developed special techniques that prove useful in calming young babies, including the most restless ones. I am in favor of a structured day as it gives children an opportunity to follow a schedule and to learn and understand discipline. Above all I value consistency, your rules are my rules. I like to tailor my care strategy to the individual child or children to create an environment that is most effective in helping a child develop and flourish. In my experience with multiple children I learned how difficult it can be to manage the varying needs of children in diverse stages of development. I honed the ability to care for each child individually, while paying close attention to the needs of the group.

I love children and enjoy their company immensely and find nothing is more rewarding than taking care of them. I am committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment for the children in my care and doing my part in creating a positive, happy home for children, one in which they feel protected and can thrive. I have good organizational and communication skills, which I believe are among the most important skills for a nanny.

I don’t mind doing extra duties for you, like cleaning and cooking dinner for the entire family. I work well with other people, thanks to my friendly and caring nature, and am sure I will make a good team with your other household employees. I'm also quite the animal lover so pet care is no problem!

I'm looking forward to hearing from interested families, please let me know your location, the hours for which you are looking for childcare, the ages of your children and any important specifics to the position. Thank you!
