Grace’s Bio

Hello, my name is Grace. I am an LMSW working as a school social worker. I have a certificate in child and family therapy and work with children of all ages running support groups, teaching workshops and providing individual therapy.  I am currently interested in occasional evening and weekend sitting.
I'm originally from Seattle, live in the East Village, and work in Brooklyn. I have extensive experience working with babies and children of all ages. Since living in NYC I have been babysitting regularly for several families in Brooklyn and Manhattan. 
For the past two years I have worked in high schools and elementry schools provding play therapy, individual and group counseling, and support groups. A couple of my areas of specialty are working with children whose parents are divorced or seperated, and promoting healthy relationships for adolescents. I was also a supervisor at a family camp for children and parents who are blind or who have multiple disabilities. 
In 2009 and 2010 I traveled for 10 months. In Spring and early Summer 2010 I worked as an au pair for a 2-year-old girl near Paris France. In March 2010 in India I volunteered for a month in a free childcare for Tibetan babies under the age of three to support the Tibetan refugee community in exile.
Before I left the country to travel I worked for over a year as a nanny for twin 3-year-old boys. I also worked previously as a teacher at a childcare/preschool where I worked primarily with toddlers, but also with preschoolers and school-age children. I also worked as a camp counselor and unit leader for many summers.

Grace is a fantastic babysitter. She has always been really attentive to each of our three children -- showing an interest in each of them in different ways. I think she "gets" little kids in that she knows how to approach them and engage them in a really genuine way. Whether Grace was taking our two boys out to neighborhood parks and running around with them -- or staying home when our toddler son or baby daughter were unexpectedly sick, I knew Grace would use great judgment and kindness and give them top-quality care. She is intuitive and responsible and has a sweet, gentle nature. My kids ask to see her constantly -- and I don't think there's a better review than that! I highly recommend Grace for babysitting.
