Child Care/Pet Care/Senior Care

Child Care: My primary career of 20 + yrs has been working as a dance instructor for children age 2 and up. While living in NYC, I was a part time nanny work for 2 families and was with both families for approximately 3 years. Currently, I am taking care of an 8 mo. old boy and my 1. 5 yo daughter and I enjoy it. Pet care: I come from a family that has owned 5 golden retrievers over the years. Most recently I took care of a Vezla (very active dog) five days a week in my home for 3 years and absolutely loved it. Growing up, I also had two bunnies and some smaller rodent type animals. In my adult life, I have had the joy of owning three wonderful cats. I love animals and am very comfortable with all types. I am married to a dog lover, have a 1. 5-year-old daughter who loves all animals too and and we have a friendly older cat. We are in Bloomfield and have a fenced in yard. We would love to board your pet for you and I am also available to come to you. We are a Covid-19 cautious family.

Reviewed by Sonia L. 5/5 stars
Lisa has been taking care of our son since he was about six months old and we couldn't be happier. She is a warm and attentive caregiver, and she is very responsive to our son and his needs as he grows and develops new skills. She gives us detailed updates about his schedule, moods, eating patterns, and naps as we request (often throughout the day when it's something we've been concerned about, not just when we pick him up at the end of the day). She is very reliable, flexible, and prompt, and our son adores her (and her daughter, who is his only playmate these days!). We also appreciate that she gives us detailed updates about her family's precautions again Covid-19. We strongly recommend Lisa as a caregiver!

Preschool 3 - must be 3 by September 1
The Preschool 3 Program introduces the child to the preschool setting. The children are encouraged to learn through experiences. Many activities such as storytelling, art, songs, games and science activities provide the child with opportunities to learn while at play. Short, formal lessons begin to introduce the child to some formal classroom structure. The development of basic math, language and reading skills as well as small and large motor skills are also an important part of the curriculum.

Pre-Kindergarten 4 - must be 4 by September 1
The Pre-Kindergarten 4 Program provides a great opportunity for 4 year olds to prepare for a more formal structured kindergarten classroom setting. Pre-reading, pre-math and other developmentally appropriate skills will be taken to the next level. The program will allow the student additional time to become more developed socially and intellectually as well as obtain the self-confidence needed to encounter new challenges as the year progresses.

Every child in the program will have the opportunity to learn about the world around them in a developmentally appropriate way through various activities. We focus on the study of people: how people live toda, how they lived in the past, how they work, get along with others, solve problems, shape & are shaped by their surroundings. In preschool, board games, learning centers or the challenges of riding on wheeled play equipment teach mapping skills. Children learn about time (history) from the daily predictable routines established -- the entrance routine, a story after snack, circle time or free play.
