Nicole’s Bio

Hello there! My name is Nicole. I am a childcare provider with nine years of experience. I came to Brooklyn from Portland, Oregon two and a half years ago. I have my Bachelor's degree in Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies from Portland State University and I am looking for a part time job as I advance in my nonprofit career. When I moved to Brooklyn, I nannied for a family who had a son who was two months old, until he was almost two. Currently, I teach coding to children through using Lego robots through a nonprofit. The past two years I’ve spent also working for Grand Street Settlement and Free Arts NYC as an after school tutor, mentor, and art teacher.

I grew up with three younger sisters and this is what helped me develop my love of children. Throughout high school I had babysitting jobs and after graduation, I worked as classroom supervisor of the 1-2 year-old room for ABC Preschool in Decatur, IL. From March of 2008-January of 2009, I worked as a nanny through an agency in Chicago called Northshore Nannies. I have worked with children ranging in age from two months to nine years old and I'm comfortable working with multiple children. From August 2011-May 2015 I was the nanny for two great families in Portland that have three toddlers. Their family size doubled and I split my care between the families. I have gone on to work for many families through these original families and through Sittercity.

My approach to childcare is to be gentle, loving, kind, but firm with boundaries. I love going on outings, playing, having fun, and exploring the world in the way that children are curious. I am young at heart and being around kids keeps me that way.

Nicole has been our nanny for over a year. She cares for 3 boys (twins and a cousin). All of the boys are 2 years old. Nicole has been an amazing addition to our team. I fully trust Nicole. I know that my boys are safe and well cared for while I am at work. Nicole plans learning activities for each day including art, reading, library groups, and outdoor play. Nicole keeps detailed notes on the activities that she implemented during the day. Nicole knows how to handle childcare challenges in a productive manner. She is thoughtful and patient. She debriefs with me at the end of each day to share both the positive occurrences and to troubleshoot any issues. She also keeps the house very clean and cooks healthy meals for the boys.

Nicole did a wonderful job helping us out short term. Our two boys, then 2 and 3 years old liked her a lot. She has a calm, nurturing demeanor that worked well for us. I was impressed with the daily activities she planned for the boys and her communication style. If we have any other opportunities for her to help us we will definitely call her back.
