Meet Shaz

  • Comfortable with pets

I am an Early Childhood educator with a B.Ed and Master's in Linguistics. I have been teaching young children for over 20 years in Australia and US. I am originally from Australia but live permanently in New York now. I have a passion for working with very young children from birth - 7 years old. I encourage creativity and imagination in all the children I care for. I have a focus on nurturing children cognitively and I also have a good understanding of the developmental stages of young children. I took a break from teaching when living in San Francisco and cared for an 8 month old child as a nanny. I currently teach 2-7 year olds the Mandarin language with music and movement. I believe learning needs to be playful, joyful and engaging, so I use an abundance of activities to delight the children in my care. I play Read more guitar and immerse children in music and songs to encourage language development. I am also an artist so I expose children to lots of different materials where they can create their own world. I am a mother of adult children so I understand how parents have to juggle work and home. I am highly organized and take the initiative when required. My personal qualities of creativity, flexibility and patience helps with the parent/child transition. I keep a daily journal of fun activities that your child is engaged in, so parents feel they are sharing in the milestones of their child and not missing out on any special events, however small.
