Barbara’s Bio

I am seeking a position in childcare in which I have over eighteen years of experience. I am a fun, reliable, highly responsible, efficient and creative mother of two teenage children of my own, one going to College(SUNY Oswego) and one going to High School (Yorktown High)

I have experience with caring for twins as well as homes with several children of different ages. I have worked as a nanny/babysitter for private families, in-group childcare settings as well as an overnight baby nurse. Being a nanny is my chosen profession and I love my career. My special passion is taking care of newborn thru early school age children. Taking care of this age child, teaching them and watching them grow gives me such satisfaction and joy. I am proud to play a vital role in their development.

I have had the pleasure of not only caring for my own children from birth thru school age but of caring for many other children during this stage as well. I am extremely knowledgeable in the different developmental transitions and know what to expect. That being said, I have learnt that each child handles transitions differently and I am able to respond appropriately in all circumstances. The main quality I have, in addition to knowledge and common sense is patience and love to help each child transition smoothly. I really enjoy being a part of a child's life. Watching them grow and playing a part in their development is awesome and exciting to me!

I am CPR and Heart Saver certified by the American Red Cross. I am certified by both the Westchester and Dutchess County Child Care Councils. Although the child will always come first, I have no problem doing housework, laundry or taking care of pets. In what seems like a full lifetime ago, before marrying and having my own children, I graduated from college and commuted and worked in New York City for almost ten years. My real passion is being a nanny and I take pride in providing the love and care the little ones I care for need!

My extensive resume and numerous references are available upon request.
