Patricia’s Bio

Hello,

My name is Patricia Hill and I am I am a curious and creative human being. I attended the University of Hawaii and the New School here in New York. I have been a photographer for years and have raised a child here in Manhattan. I am educated and largely self taught due to my insatiable curiosity. I have begun babysitting recently as I feel there is a hole in my life that needs to be filled once again with the sound and interaction of children. I am extremely energetic and CPR and First Aid certified just in case.
Organization is one of my strong points, due to my career producing advertising photos. I worked with children frequently from birth through teen years and learned patience and ingenuity in cajoling them to cooperate.
I love cooking and keeping things tidy, but mostly I love interacting with children and helping to stimulate and guide them and keep them safe.
Having six siblings helped me enormously to learn about sharing and
compassion and competition.
Having gone through all of the usual earaches, fevers, chicken pox, broken arms, and ADHD issues, with my son, I feel I am well qualified to help other families raise their children safely.

Excellent. Can't say enough good about her!

I don't like to be hyperbolic because people often find unbalanced reviews hard to believe, in toto, but Patricia is the best sitter we've had. She has done short notice overnight and multiple days in a row. At all times, she brings activities for the kids (we have three - ages 11, 6 and 5), makes them good homemade food with whatever we have (and turning down take out, which we offer!), and has my house cleaner than when I left it. She's cheerful, willing to put in a level of effort that no parent should expect, comes prepared, gets to know the kids, keeps reasonable rules and control - and the kids still look forward to her coming back to babysit.

We can't recommend her enough. After five combined kids and 16 years of parenting, Patricia is the best sitter we've had.

Reliable and hard-working. Absolutely the best one around!

We are delighted to write a recommendation for Pat as a babysitter. We have employed Pat for two years as a babysitter to look after our son (now 8 years old). During that time have found her to be caring, conscientious and willing to go above and beyond what we've asked her to do. She has developed a strong relationship with our boy and has very capably helped us with a wide range of activities. These include watching our son at home, at the park, supervising play with his friends at our house, picking him up at school, helping with homework and taking him on outings to museums and other attractions. Pat has shown flexibility in helping us navigate busy weeks, resolving scheduling and logistical problems on numerous occasions. She has also taken initiative to help in other ways, including cooking dinners on designated evenings. Throughout Pat has regularly contributed that little "extra" effort which has shown us she is always thinking about what she is doing. After many years and babysitters in the City, we feel ourselves fortunate to have found her! We are now helping Pat find additional work because our son is switching schools next year and our needs for childcare have changed.

We are a British family visiting New York for a long weekend. Patricia looked after our 2 children for the evening in the hotel. The children thought she was lovely. She engaged with them straight away. It all made for a relaxed evening out. Thanks Patricia.
