Full Time Nanny Available

Hi, I've been working with kids for the past 10+ years. In the past I've worked in daycares, with children from 3 months to 5 years old. I've also worked for the board of education, with children from the ages 5 to 18 years old. I've gained so much experience and patience throughout the years especially with the board of education job because I've assisted with children who may have special needs, children that just need that extra love and attention. So I feel my skills go beyond the average child. I have three years of college under my belt. I enjoy doing arts and crafts, going on adventures with the children, like visiting museums, libraries or some make believe land. I've also had some experience with lesson plans for children, to help expand their learning capabilities as well.

I met Rebecca in 2013 during my first trip to Connecticut. Since, she has watched my son every summer. My son loves flying from Texas during the summer to spend time with Rebecca. I'm very cautious about who I allow around my son, but Rebecca is truly a blessing. She's the only person outside of my parents that I've ever allowed to watch my son. She's so close to perfect, that I'm comfortable and allow her to watch my son at her own home in CT (while I'm in TX). She is very clean and organized. Her cleanliness is definitely unmatched. To top it off, she can cook like no other. She can get my son to eat anything (vegetables, fruits, you name it). The way she is with kids never ceases to amaze me. She's young, wise, old-fashioned, but also in tune with today's generation. She's literally the best nanny I could've ever asked for. My son and I love her to pieces. If only we could have her in Texas. You will definitely love her just as much as your kids!

Hi! I'm 22 years old and I have been babysitting since I was 12. I am trained in CPR and adult and pediatric first aid. I am a volunteer firefighter and more than equipped to perform in any emergency situation. I am also bilingual- English and Spanish. I have three siblings and am one of 27 cousins so I have always been good working with kids. I have been a consistent babysitter for 3 families for the last 7 years. I also worked as a nanny for a family of 3 children and a family of 2 children, the youngest being 12 months- so I am more than comfortable with toddlers. I have my own car and a clean driving record and I am a non-smoker. I love reading with kids, playing sports, doing arts and crafts, going to the park, and going to the beach. I grew up playing soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey and love to ski - I love living an active life style. I am attending Fairfield University where I am studying Psychology and Education and am looking for occasional weeknight & weekend babysitting!

Anne is incredibly dedicated to providing a positive environment for the children she works with. I worked with Anne while she instructed beginner skiers. She is clear about goals and expectations; made lesson plans creative and engaging; and communicated well with the people she works with. Anne nurtures a genuine, growth-focused relationship with anyone she works with. She's great- I highly recommend her to you!

18 Edgewood Ave, Stamford, CT

Costimate: $326/wk

Nestled in a beautiful botanical setting our small home-based daycare center offers top of the line child care service and unique nature-oriented program that fosters children's natural sense of wonder and joy of discovery, nurtures their imagination and stimulates them towards learning in general. At Edgewood Academy we believe that children learn best through direct experiences and interaction with people and the world around them. While emphasizing the development of the whole child, we are focusing on strengthening cognitive skills, gross and fine motor skills, language and communication skills through active, hands-on learning where nature-related experiences play one of the most important roles. Edgewood Academy is dedicated to providing a warm and inviting atmosphere that allows children to develop at their own pace. Your child's individual needs are respected and attentively taking care of. In our center you will see no lines to stand, only games to play; no school games, only preschool games; no patterns to follow, only materials with which to create; no complicated, abstract meaning that the child cannot comprehend; only ideas and things to talk about, relate to, compare with, match, fit into, try out, invent, discover and enjoy. Yet, at all times children are being continuously challenged by learning goals we set for them. At Edgewood Academy we foster your child's positive self image, along with his developmental growth in the areas of intellectual, social, physical, and emotional skills, through a variety of group activities, individual play, and quiet periods. Our program makes use of many play and learning materials that help the children gain confidence in their abilities to do and make things. We encourage and teach children to interact and communicate with others while retaining proper discipline without criticism. At Edgewood Academy we are parent-friendly. We welcome parent visit anytime, and we seriously consider all parent suggestions and comments.
