Zenobia’s Bio

Hi. My name is Zanny and I’ve been working as a nanny/babysitter for the past 10 years. During this time I’ve worked with all different types of families and taken care of children between the ages of 1 week months to 13 years. Over this time I have developed a philosophy as a childcare provider that I always utilize while I’m working with kids. For me the most important traits a nanny can have are patience, communication, and caring. For me patience is so important. Raising your voice, being sarcastic, or getting mad is not the way to get kids to listen or respect you. Respect goes both ways and children deserve a caretaker that can calmly see them through the day. Patience and communication can go hand in hand, especially with toddlers. They don’t always know how to express their needs, but frustration isn’t an option. No matter the age, I can always find a way to calmly find out the needs of the children under my care and help them through all the little obstacles they face throughout the day.
All kids love to be active and New York City is full of cultural and kid appropriate activities. I love to take the kids I work with to museums, libraries, parks, and other educational opportunities. If we’re not out enjoying the city then I’m on the floor with them playing, reading, singing, creating, or going wherever our imaginations take us.
I’ve worked with lots of different types of family and my responsibilities have included light housekeeping, dog walking, home and office organization, running errands, cooking, and anything else that comes my way. The one thing that all these families have had in common is their desire for the best childcare possible for their children. I understand and respect how important this decision is and the importance of the parent/nanny relationship. I am a professional and take I take my job very seriously. However, it is easy to be good at your job when you love it!
