I'm a nanny because:

Childcare has been something I have always naturally loved doing and has been an enjoyable way for me to make ends meet throughout my education. As a runner, musician and actress, I love to encourage creativity and inspire the children I work with to be active in the ways they enjoy most. I am currently pursuing an acting and media production career while freelance writing for various New York City magazines, so nannying is an enjoyable way for me to pursue a career in media.   In the past couple years, I have been too busy working on a thesis and 2 media jobs to continue babysitting. Now that I am done with school and focusing on my career, I hope to babysit again and more. I have watched children from 11-months old to 14-years-old, from daily home care to after-school group care and would love to apply this experience to my current life.   I recently received my 200 hour yoga teacher training and was a competitive runner and jazz tenor saxophone player for many years. I am still am very active, and outdoor activity along with creativity are equally important to me. I therefore try to encourage both activity and creativity for the children I care for by finding fun projects and ways to be outside and complement the passions of each child. I work to always be a point of support for all.

My past childcare experience: I have been babysitting neighbors and family friends since I was 11 years old in Flagstaff, Arizona. I became a regular caretaker for many of these families throughout my years before moving away for college and started an after-school music tutoring program when in high school. I would also spend my summers babysitting my 4 younger cousins in Connecticut for a few weeks at a time. Once in college, I continued to take both long-term nanny and babysitting positions and worked in an after-school theater and dance mentorship program. We would tutor elementary school students on their assigned schoolwork while developing plays or dance routines focused on an educational topic over each semester. I worked for various families over my entire college career other than my time studying abroad, while taking short-term referral-based jobs when needed. Work in the after-school program made me as accustomed to working with late elementary/middle-school aged children and I am working with children in their first year. In addition to tutoring and helping families in the past, I regularly babysat 2 little girls (7 and 9 years old now) for one family, and a little boy (13 now) of another in my home. After moving to Manhattan in 2008 for college, I found 3 families in New York I then helped regularly: for a little boy who was 6 months old when I started watching him, and is now 6, for a 6 and 8 year old boy who are now 9 and 11, and another 3 year old boy for a few years. I also took different jobs for their friends and through babysitting agencies before studying abroad and have continued to help when needed in the past couple years.
