April’s Bio

Hi! My name is April. I live in Upper Queen Anne, Seattle, and work as an after school babysitter for a 6-year-old boy and 8-year-old girl, and also as a teacher at a Montessori toddler preschool (ages 18-36 mos.). Beyond childcare and teaching, I am an artist and illustrator.

I have been babysitting and working with children since I was in middle school nearly a decade and a half ago! I have been with my current family for almost 4 years (The first 3 years, we all lived in Brooklyn, NY! We moved to Seattle in August 2017 and I am loving it here). My responsibilities include: pickup, taking them to various activities, playtime, snack time, homework, shower/bath, dinner, laundry, and occasional bedtime (about once a week). Our playtime activities include: arts and crafts projects, reading, coloring, board games, dancing, role-playing games, running around in the park, playdates with friends, cooking, and lots more!)

In the past, I have worked as a summer camp counselor/birthday party attendant (ages 1-7) at a nursery school in my hometown of Albany. I also spent some time living in Beijing, where I volunteered at a migrant children's community center (ages 5-11), teaching English and art and helping out wherever I was needed. During college, I mentored an amazing preteen girl with an organization that pairs adopted Chinese children with Asian or Asian American mentors to help them learn about their culture, while also raising money for disadvantaged orphans in China. I also taught an after school art program to inner city elementary school kids in Providence, RI. I have also worked in multiple day care centers and have babysat for kids of all ages.

I love kids! I love to see how fast they grow and learn, and they have an amazing and uncomplicated view on life.

I am a non smoker, responsible, reliable, and always cheerful. Because I am a preschool teacher, I have been background checked in the State of Washington.
