Meet Rea

  • Speaks English

Hi, my name is Rea Bowen and I am from the beautiful little island of Grenada known as “the isle of spice”, but now living Brooklyn, New York for over 8 years. I hold an associate degree in Early Childhood from Kingsborough Community College and now pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood/special education at Brooklyn College. I am certified in CPR and first Aid, Baby Nurse, shaken baby syndrome, child abuse and maltreatment, early intervention and family engagement. My work history consists of working as a pre-school teacher for the past seven years in Grenada, several nanny jobs, an assistant teacher at Hebrew Educational Society with pre-school children ages 2 plus and an assistant teacher at The Children Center Suny Downstate. My time as a nanny and teacher has taught me to be patient, caring and open minded to welcoming new things and challenges. My priority is to keep Read more child or children safe and to use my potential to educate and create a learning environment. I am a punctual person, very good at organizing play dates, keeping appointments, cooking healthy meals, tutoring, keeping parents up to date from time to time about their children during work hours. I love travelling, reading, dancing sports and sewing.
