Hello moms and dads! I am an energetic 32-year-old from Boston, MA. I grew up in an English/Spanish bilingual household and studied French in school (although it's admittedly rusty now). I received my BA in both Psychology and Studio Art from Dartmouth College in 2006, and my MFA in Fine Art at California College of the Arts in 2015. I have eight years of experience working with children ages 2 months - 10 years, both as a daycare provider and nanny. I am currently seeking to switch to a part-time to full-time position (seeking about 30 hours) with one family who I can develop a meaningful relationship with.
I am in every way an artist and academic (the daughter of a dancer and a chemist) and this is where my teaching and childcare styles stem from. I am definitely not the type to sit your child in front of the TV and strongly believe that every activity can be a fun learning opportunity. My childcare routine involves a healthy balance of hugs, laughs, education and structure.
Some of my favorite activities to do with kids are: hike and then picnic at the top of the hill, maybe interspersed with some outdoor art projects; read out-loud and be read to by those old enough; make up funny dances together and perform them for the grown-ups; build indoor and outdoor forts, preferably ones that include a super-secret communication system; invent things and perform science experiments of varying levels of difficulty and icky-ness, depending on the child; search for hidden treasure, which is everywhere if we look hard enough.
Littler ones and I love to: share stroller walks, naming the flora and fauna along the way; learn and use hand signs; sing constantly about everything from snack-time to far-away lands; find out which goofy faces and voices get the most laughs; read baby books as well as books we don't really understand yet; work on our sensorimotor skills; make nice big messes and clean them up.
I have experience with newborns, tweens, twins - you name it! I enjoy single children and big families alike, and am always up for whatever crazy surprises each little person inevitable has in store. Childcare is my opportunity to participate in your child's life adventure!
I am no longer CPR/First Aid certified, but if you would like to sponsor me I would be happy to get re-certified.
