My name is Laurelai and I am a speech-language pathologist at a local school. Currently I work primarily with elementary students but I have experience working with all ages including infants. I am looking for part-time, occasional, and one-time babysitting opportunities. I grew up with three much younger siblings so I have been around children my whole life! I have worked as a child caretaker in a church, a toddler room supervisor, a nanny, and I have been babysitting for many years. I am CPR/First Aid certified for all ages (infant-adult). Summer of 2009 I worked at an orphanage in Guatemala which was a phenomenal experience. In January 2014 I took a trip to Ecuador with my program to help diagnose and treat children in an orphanage there as well! I also have sign language experience. I have worked with multiples (twins and triplets) and children with special needs such Read more as cerebral palsy and oppositional/defiant disorder. I have experience working with newborns, toddlers, and school-aged children. In college I minored in vocal performance because I love to sing! I also played violin for 10+ years. I am able to help children with homework. I can prepare simple meals for kids and can drive kids to activities. I love to play games, read books, and have fun! At this time I am not available for school pick-ups. I am very flexible on nights and weekends. I work at a school Monday-Thursday from 730am-430pm. Feel free to reach out about last-minute needs!

Laurelai watched my LO for 4 hours and it was such a wonderful experience. She was on time, easy to work with, has great communication skills and my little one loved her. As a first time mom and a newbie to nyc, I was hesitant about leaving my daughter but needed a little me time. I’m so sad Lorelei is back in school and has limited availability. I would hire her again in a heart beat. And plan on it during the weekends!
