Hi there! 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. 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 Read more 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.
