Antoinette’s Bio

Hello All,
My name is Antoinette Briguglio, but I'm usually called Tony. I grew up on the Lower East Side and I still live in lower Manhattan today. I am a part time student at City College where I'm completing my first Bachelor's Degree. I'm currently employed by a family on the upper west side, but I'm looking for something to supplement my income.
I find that caring for children requires me to practice performing at my potential as a person and I can't imagine life without it.
I'm the eldest of three siblings and I've been honing my childcare skills since I was eight years old. Thanks to family friends and neighbors, I started babysitting outside of my immediate family when I was thirteen.
I love kids and I take pride in doing my best every time I babysit.  When I am with a child, I am inspired to be my best self because I can feel them watching me, and taking me as an example of what an adult is and how one should behave. I also really love getting to know children. I try to join them in the things they like to do, and really listen when they're talking to me. Once I know what a child's interests are, I like to incorporate activities into our time together that reflect them.   I do my best to help children feel safe and comfortable while they're with me by communicating clearly with them and empathizing with their experience and feelings instead of just expecting obedience.
When I take them to the park, I chase and tickle them, or tag along side them while they're on play ground equipment. When we're home, I join them in their imaginative play, or play board games, or do a crafts project together. If we're watching a movie, I'll turn the lights out and snuggle with them on the couch to join them in the experience. I never forget when I'm watching a child, that they will be an adult before too long and I do everything that I can to encourage good behavior.

I cannot recommend Tony highly enough. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have found someone that I felt I could completely trust with my child. She took excellent care of my 2-year-old son and he took a liking to her right away. Tony was prompt, professional and has an easygoing personality. We plan to call on her again next time we're in NYC!

Tony is a wonderful babysitter. My 3 toddlers love spending time with her. She is firm yet fun -- hard to find! Tony is also very professional and reliable. Most importantly, a good person. I highly recommend Tony!

Tony has looked after my two year old son several times now. He liked her from the first day and they have a great time together. He is never sad when I leave. I definitely recommend her!
