Barbara’s Bio

My name is Barbara Press, & I am a professional nanny. My resume, work history and availability schedule follow this profile (below). I have worked as a professional nanny on and off for over 10 years professionally in total, but like many women I have been babysitting since I was a young girl (age 9) giving me over 35+ years’ experience. I am a single woman with a two cats. My Golden Retriever just passed away so if you have dogs I wouldn’t mind at all! I own my home in Westtown, N.Y. about 12 miles from Middletown, N.Y. I relocated back to N.Y. in 2004 after living in California for nine years to be closer to my brother, sister and nine nephews and niece. My brother has 4 children, one severely autistic and another son with Dystonia. I share this information because it can be helpful with families that may have a child w/challenges. I assist my brother as needed. I worked as a child care provider when I was overseas serving in the Navy on my off duty time. The petty officers I served w/trusted me with their children, so there never was a shortage of part time work. After my six years in the service, I continued in the child care industry while attending college. Eventually, I applied for the State of California Licensed Child Care Provider license so I could operate a Day Care facility out of my home which I did until I graduated college. I’m comfortable working with all ages of children, but enjoy 4 year olds most! At this age I find them to be engaging, precocious and developing their own personality (like a Little Person). Many of the families I’ve worked w/are multiple children households but I’ve also had the opportunity to work w/families that have one child (my sister’s son is an only child). I love to work w/ families that have pets in the home & I do not object to caring for them. When I lived in California, I was an active volunteer for Concerned People for Animals in Ventura. I’m a natural born kid, and get very involved with the children I care for (if they let me). I tend to be the Pied Piper when kids are around. I enjoy crafts, puppet shows, baking and cooking, outside activities including kickball and softball. With infants, I find creative ways to work w/ them through play when they are not sleeping. I’m an avid reader receive several parent trade magazines monthly to keep me informed. I will get bored & it would not be a good match, if your children only see me as a ‘babysitter’ observing rather than a part of the family.
