Ms’s Bio

Caring for babies & children is an integral part of who I am.  If you are looking for someone who will respect your family dynamic, will nurture your children as you would do yourself, and will make a commitment to your family, please consider me.  I am seeking to be shared among families who appreciate my patience, tenderness, kind heart and passion for taking care of babies and children. My current and former families will be happy to communicate with you about my work with their children.
I have experience as a rock-a-bye baby cuddler, story reader, singer of children’s songs, audience to children’s jokes, mother’s helper, chauffer, grocery shopper, diverter of incidents of crying over spilled milk and other minor disasters, kisser of boo-boos real and imagined, and all things baby and/or child related.
In addition to having raised four of my own babies, I also ran a licensed day care & preschool and was involved in a babysitting co-op.  I have a BA in Early Childhood and Elementary Education, with experience as a kindergarten-2nd grade teacher, as both a live-in and live-out nanny & housekeeper, and as a private tutor.  I am very active, outgoing, and positive.  I enjoy taking walks with children, playing with them at the park or in the yard, helping them learn to walk, talk, pat-a-cake, sing, read, ride bikes, and do somersaults.  I try to keep children engaged in a balance of active and passive play and activities, structured and independent play, and spontaneous learning opportunities.
Currently, as a part-time shared nanny, I keep my day teacher-facilitated but child-directed, (a variety of activities so the children make many independent choices). I engage children in "learning moments" daily... answering questions and teaching mini-lessons whenever they show an interest in something.  I also blend learning with routine household tasks, integrating new words to expand vocabulary beyond the simple terminology.  For example, I teach math concepts while doing laundry or the dishes, introducing such words as categorize , separate, compare instead of just “ sort ”.    Through playing games, we love to explore while developing positive character traits and both social and academic skills.
