Hello, my name is Elizabeth D’Costa. I am come from a large family, and as the oldest, I have always been taking constant care of others. My greatest accomplishment has been my five children who I have been nurturing over the last 30 years. I currently work at HeadStart in Wantagh and am work with young children every day throughout the year. I teach these children various skills from brushing their teeth to writing and reading. I am both First- Aid and CPR certified. With the experiences I have learned with my own children, the children I work with, and taking care of my neighbors and friends children, baby-sitting is something that comes natural to me. Spending time and watching children grow is one of the greatest joys in life, but I personally understand how hectic life can get at times. Other the last 30 years, my patience and age Read more appropriate creativity has only increased over the years. I understand the importance of my role as a baby-sitter, the children and their safety come first.  I am available for business during the week after 4 p.m., and am extremely flexible over the weekend. I look forward to meeting with you!
