Child Care Provider

I have experience working with children since I was a freshman in high school. I am an educated, caring, energetic, active, and playful care provider. I've worked with many families while they were on business trips, working, or for a date night. I take the children to the park, museums, play lots of games, but also make sure that even if they do not have homework, that they read at least one book (depending on their school level). I help with pronunciations, numbers and vocabulary words. My goal as a caregiver is to make sure that the children are having fun but also learning. I want to show families that not only can their child do well in school, but show them that one of the main reasons would be that they also learned at home. I've worked with children from ages 5 years to 14 years old. At my current job, I focus on the fundamentals of learning while having fun. One of my goals would be making sure that at the end of the day the children can go back to their parents and tell them they had a great time. I provide art projects, cooking lessons, and sports. I love to teach, but my main achievement would be making sure that the children had fun too.

Denise has cared for our daughter as if she were her own. She is super sweet and easy going. She always took the time to listen to any concerns we had and respected our wishes pertaining to the care of our daughter. Our daughter's current teacher was very impress on how well developed our child was mentally and verbally. Denise has so much patience I can't express this enough. My daughter wasn't easy during her 2s and 3s. Denise just had a way with her and they really developed a special bond. I just can't say enough good things about her. She was truly a blessing and always felt like one of the family.

Three cheers for the unsung heroes of this pandemic that are the wonderful souls who have saved our children, specifically Miss HK. Miss HK , the founder & CEO of the HK Institute embodies exactly what I believe all parents of young children truly dream for in terms of someone to educate their child , pandemic or not. Taking into account that The HK Institute opened their doors, hearts and personal cell phone numbers to anyone and everyone in need in perfect synchronicity with the schools closing nationwide - it was clear from the from the start that Miss HK was someone who was involved purely from the goodness of her heart and her love of her "nuggets" as she lovingly refers to all her students. Hailing from the Ivy League halls of Columbia University & the sunny streets of Sesame Street - Miss HK's progressive vision and approach to education is not one that you will have the chance to come in contact with many times in life. Her brilliance is only outweighed by her kindness. In regards to program structure she has meticulously created a magical little enclave that is rooted deeply in the concept of inclusive education, multiple intelligences, undivided attention to all details , differentiated instruction and diverse curriculum theories ( *reggio & Montessori & TC reading and writing project ) . To sum it up when signing up for the HK Institute you will get all of the rich academic content of any rival private prep school but along with that you also get a personalized education plan that includes everything from mindfulness morning meditation paddle boarding , assistive technology & learning disability support, personal chefs and there is rumor to be an emotional support pony in the pipeline. It sounds like I'm joking but knowing that my children now have the gumption and guidance of Miss HK & the HK Institute running the show - I am confident anything is possible from academics and beyond. Don't hesitate to lock down a spot as this isn't going to stay such a well kept secret for much longer.

World of Children

484 Second Ave Floor 2, New York, NY

Costimate: $256/wk

At World of Children, each child receives an education that is individually created specifically for him/her. Our programs are constantly reflected on and updated by our Directors and Teachers to offer maximum support and care for each child.
Our schools use specially developed Montessori Resources which are easy to use and are suited specifically for your child's age. Our materials actually encourage self-control while inviting children to reflect on how to improve. Your child's teachers are guides and facilitators who do not need to play the traditional teacher-role of judge, jury, and dispenser of all information, instead, children identify their skills and where and how they can grow. This strategy helps to preserve their sense of self-esteem and belief in the fact that learning is sometimes messy ...and that is a good thing.

We offer many different flexible options in terms of our hours of availability. Generally, we are open from 8:30-6:00 Monday through Friday.

We have activated a host of safety precautions and protocols to ensure that your child's tie with us will be one where health and safety are paramount!

World of Children -Montessori is a great daycare center! Our son adores his incredible teachers (Ms. Inna who speaks fluently Russian, Hebrew, and English, and Ms. Stephanie). We are very grateful to them for his social, academic, and physical development. He knows the alphabet, writes his name, counts to 20, knows all seasons/months/days of the week, and he is not even 4 years old. There is a private gated playground where kids safely play during breaks. As working parents we appreciate convenient location (Manhattan, Kips Bay) and flexible hours (8:30-30pm or 8:30-6pm). We feel absolutely safe to leave our child at the daycare under the professional supervision of caring and loving teachers. Highly recommend !
