Gwendolyn’s Bio

Hi there! My name is Gwen, I'm 22 and grew up in Athens, Ohio. I left Athens in 2010 to attend Franklin & Marshall College, where I graduated this past May with a Bachelor of Arts in Dance & Italian. After spending a summer interning and babysitting in New York City, I am returning to Athens to teach at Factory Street Studio, and am hoping to find a babysitting job as well!

I have been babysitting since I was twelve years old, and have provided care to families of different sizes, different needs and different family dynamics. In that time I have changed diapers and counseled broken hearts...and everything in between. I have experience with children 2 weeks through high school, and have cared for families with 1 to 5 children. I am certified in Adult and Pediatric CPR/First Aid.

So what's special about me? My specialty as a dance/movement teacher is creative movement; I am always looking for creative ways to engage children through movement to help them experience the world and move efficiently. I have taught creative movement for very young children for three years, so I have many games and activities to engage young children creatively and energetically. One of my favorite parts of teaching is letting them use their imagination. I have found that children learn so much better and faster when they engage with their own ideas and imagery to connect with whatever material is in front of them, and I try to encourage that kind of active thinking beyond the studio, to when I’m “just” babysitting.

As a babysitter, I am compassionate, sympathetic, creative and active, but I also firmly believe in following the parent's ethics, rules and beliefs in raising their children. I believe that my job is not only to provide excellent childcare, but to support parents in raising their children.
