Hi there! My name is Melanie, and I am looking for a babysitting opportunities in Manhattan or the Astoria/Long Island City area. I have extensive experience in childcare and I love working with kids of all ages!
I live in Astoria and I am in my fourth year of a PhD program in Psychology and Law. I have B.S. in Psychology from Fordham University, where I focused my studies on early childhood development. I worked as an Assistant Teacher for three years at Knowledge Beginnings Daycare and Preschool in Lexington, MA, where I worked predominately with children ages 6-weeks through 3-years. I also worked at the Munroe Center for the Arts day camp in Lexington, MA for four summers with children ages 5 through 12.
I have experience working as a nanny for children of various ages. During the spring of 2011 I worked as a full-time nanny for two children, ages 2 and 4, and occasionally cared for their newborn brother as well. In the summer of 2010 I worked as a part time nanny for two children, ages 2 and 5, and during the summer of 2008 I worked full-time for a family of three children, ages 4, 6, and 10. Since moving back to New York four years ago, I have babysat on nights and weekends for various families. I can provide you with strong references upon request.
I am very comfortable with diapers and bottles if needed, and I am happy to do light housework and cooking. I love arts and crafts (and after working at an arts camp I have a lot of ideas saved up!), or anything else creative – at a previous job, the kids and I made cupcakes and decorated them to look like pigs! I also love spending time outside and being active. I am a strong swimmer and am comfortable supervising kids in the pool. I am also comfortable with driving if needed, and I have a clean driving record (although I do not currently own a car).
I would love to speak with you about potential babysitting positions! Please feel free to reach out to discuss potential positions.
