Tanya’s Bio

Hello Parents!

I am currently seeking steady childcare work, either part-time or nearly full-time. I am happy to offer after school care or longer days if there are younger children. A family I have known for years whose son was a toddler in a "Mommy and Me" class of mine initially can use my help on Thursday afternoons if I find work around that. I can also give up those Thursdays for the right family that needs me for multiple days, including Thursdays. I'm not currently teaching, although I may begin teaching on some mornings soon unless I find a great full-time child care position. I've been on a bit of a break since January and now I really need to get back to work. I am also happy to do short notice jobs, and my evenings are very flexible.

I am really wanting to focus on my music over teaching and business at this point. I just need to find a great family or two. I began baby-sitting as a teenager and never stopped! I couldn't wait until I was old enough to baby-sit and have been baby-sitting for over 20 years now. The first toddler I baby-sat in Manhattan is now in college! I do not have children of my own so I never really tire of my time with my students and the children I care for. One of my greatest joys in life is spending time with children. I have been a full-time Nanny, a part-time Nanny, a regular baby sitter, an occasional sitter, and a one time sitter many, many times. I also have extensive experience in early education. I have been working as an early development specialist teaching mostly music and movement, but also art and science, for almost 15 years. Weekends often find me in the role of professional children's entertainer and singer-songwriter of music for children and adults. I usually perform at birthday parties during the late morning/early afternoon on Saturdays, and I perform much less frequently for adults, usually on Sunday nights.

I have excellent references I am happy to supply upon determining we are interested in moving forward.

If you have pets, I love them so no worries.

If you feel we might be a good fit, I look forward to hearing from you.

All my best,
Tanya

I'd highly recommend Tanya. She was great with our 7-year-old daughter. She seems to "get" kids easily, knows how to get on their level quickly, and is energetic and entertaining.

We just hired Tanya as a part time sitter for our 10 and 15 year old girls for the month of July. She has spent two days with the girls already and and won both their hearts with her warms personality and artistic interests. We are looking forward to getting to know her more and feel so lucky to have found her through sittercity.com

Thank you so much Birnur!
I am just noticing this now. I had such a wonderful time getting to know your family, and will call soon about the visit to your lab! I want to see the girls too! Maybe Ice Cream at B&J's!

Happy Holidays!

Love,
Tanya

You will love Tanya!

We live in Boston but were in NYC for the holidays to visit the grandparents. We had a holiday festivities snafu - my husband and I had theatre tickets and my mom and older daughter had Nutcracker tickets - which meant that my 19 month old suddenly had no one to look after her but 90 year old grandpa. I researched sittercity and found Tanya. She was available at short notice and was FABULOUS - my younger daughter is rather clingy and high-strung, but she took to Tanya immediately, who arrived with guitar, songs, age-appriopriate books and toys, music education and early education experience, and most importantly, a FABULOUS spirt and personality which endeared her to me, Grandpa, and baby daughter alike. I left the house to a rousing chorus of "head, shoulders, knees and toes" and enjoyed the theatre without worry. Tanya was sure to text me to reassure me all was well and to tell me my little one has such a great time she conked out on the couch exhausted from all the fun. Tanya was a wonderful find and I definitely plan to use her again next time we are in NYC. I cannot recommend Tanya highly enough!!

Dear Fiona!

Well, it surely was fate! I can not believe all the delightful coincidences!

Thank you so deeply for all of your kind words and the warmth I felt from you all! Alice was an absolute delight, and I wish I'd had more time with her.

Who knew I'd be getting a professional development workshop with an expert! You Dad is fascinating and I wish I'd had the chance to take his early ed classes. We also had a blast singing and even dancing...!

I can't wait to see you all again soon!

Many Thanks,
Tanya

Creme de la creme. The best!

Absolutely FABULOUS (times infinity), lovely, passionate and engaging sitter.
My 5-year-old and I were visiting NYC for two weeks and needed a sitter part time.
Tanya arrived with a guitar, books, toys and artsiness galore to not just spend time with my daughter, but engage her in educational activities and experiences.
I could sense (and it was confirmed by my daughter's enthusiasm) that Tanya is a total natural with kids and passionate about the arts and education.
I came home to two happy people singing, dancing and chatting away. Tanya is a professional performer and I found her energy totally infectious.
Oh and it didn't suck to have the dishes cleaned! It wasn't even in her job description and wasn't requested. This gesture exemplified her attentiveness and care. If you're thinking about hiring a sitter - hire Tanya!!
