Looking for work as a babysitter.

  • 14 years paid experience
  • Babysitter in New York, NY 10003

Meet Joanna

  • Comfortable with pets

Hello!  I am a (young) 39 year old college grad with a Bachelor's in Psychology. I have 14 years of caretaking experience with children of all ages (infancy - teens) and levels of need (special needs and neurotypical).  I never thought I would enjoy working with children so much, but over the years I have gained experience and many compliments and requests from parents.  I'd like to continue down this path and be an asset to other families.  I am currently looking for a part time position of 20-30 hours a week during the school year. I would need to be off during the summer months starting at the end of May. When in the company of children, I enjoy engaging in conversation, doing arts and crafts, playing games, going to the playground, going to bookstores or libraries, and reading to/with them.  I am no world class chef, but I Read more can prepare simple meals and snacks.  I am very kind, responsible, and fun, yet firm when necessary.  I'm also very much looking for some supplemental part-time work (between the hours of 10am and 1pm, or later nights 6pm - midnight on occasion), so if you feel that I could possibly be a good match for your family, please do reach out!  I hope to hear from you! *If we communicate, and you express interest in moving forward, please do not disappear. It’s quite disheartening. I offer the utmost professionalism and courtesy, and hope that you will do the same. Thank you :)
