Hello Parents, My name is Silje and I am 36 years old. I have a bachelor in childhood education and an associate in Early Childhood Education. I am a certified elementary teacher. I have been caring for children since I was about 12 years old. Since then, I have been taking care of many children of all ages.   I was an Au Pair for 2 years, looking after three boys, age newborn, 4, and 9. Then I was a live-in nanny for 4 years, caring for two girls 9 and 11 years old and a boy, age 7. After that I was a mother’s helper/sitter/nanny for 2 children, newborn and 4 years old. While in school I was a mother’s helper for a family with two kids, 12 months and 3 year old. In addition, I have babysat for many families on occasions, both long and short terms. Some of my responsibilities Read more were dropping off/picking up from school, help with homework, drive them to activities/friends, feed them, indoor and outdoor activities (arts and craft, reading, dress up, board games, sports, etc), light housekeeping (children's laundry, empty dishwasher etc. ) With the newborn babies, I changed diapers, fed bottle/food, naps, bath time, put to bed for night, and everything else that involves babies. I enjoy playing soccer and like to be active. Some of the many activities I took the children to were the beach, theme parks, library, movies, museums, etc. I am the kind of person who gets on the floor and play and take part in children’s activities. I am a very easygoing person and responsible. I am trustworthy, honest and reliable. I am calm, caring, and fun but also know when to be firm and give safe boundaries. I put my family and friends very high and have a very good relationship with them all. I can provide you with excellent references. Look forward hearing from you. Thank you!!

Silje did an excellent job taking care of our baby for a day in Westchester. It's very easy to communicate with her, and she has a cheerful disposition. She is clearly very experienced with babies, and our daughter responded well to her. We would certainly hire her again.
