Reliable And Fun Babysitter

My name is Emily and I am 24-year-old law student living in West Hartford. I have about two years experience babysitting for one family with three kids (started age 6 weeks, 2 years, 6 years). I really credit those three little ones with inspiring me to go into education. After working as a teacher for two years in Miami, FL and getting my Masters in Education, I decided to move back home to CT to attend UConn Law School. In the future I hope to work in education and child's advocacy law. Since law school is quite expensive, I am happy to spend a few hours a week caring for children and making some money at the same time. As a former Language Arts teacher, I am certainly willing to assist your children with remote learning and homework. I look forward to meeting you and your kids soon! I am also fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

I have known Emily for roughly ten years. She was hired to babysit my kids when they were very little (youngest was a newborn and oldest was 6). My wife was fighting cancer. Our lives were chaotic at best. Emily was absolutely amazing. She was at our house so much. She was 1/2 of a babysitting team that made sure someone was always there, kids were fed, clean, safe, and transported as needed. I've worked with literally thousands of kids between the ages of 15 and 22 for various jobs I've had and Emily is in the top 1% in terms of character, dependability, personality, etc... If you need someone, look no further. Hire her. She's as good as it gets. I wrote her a letter of recommendation. I can't say enough good things about her.

Creative, Energetic Sitter

I am a recent college graduate who is looking to nanny while I go back to school for my Master's degree. As the oldest of six children, I have a natural ability working with kids and I have always loved babysitting. I have six years of babysitting experience, including sitting on weekdays, weekends, and during summer vacation. I have worked with children of all ages (6mo-10 years), as well as multiple children at a time. I love keeping children engaged with a variety of activities, such as nature walks, crafts, and playing games. I am great at multitasking, as I am able to keep household tasks done with entertaining the kids. I like to make sure that children are active members of their households, like tidying their rooms and helping out with minimal chores. Also, it's important to me that "kids be kids," so I like to limit time on technology. Overall, I am a fun loving, active, and caring nanny who is looking for a full time position with an awesome family!

We were incredibly lucky to have Paige babysit our two children for the whole summer. We have a son who is 9 and a daughter who is 11. She was always punctual, flexible, and connects very well with children. Paige always kept the kids active and involved in various activities. She consistently communicated well with us and was extremely trustworthy. When I asked my son how he would describe Ms. Paige, he said she's "super nice". We would have loved for Paige to continue watching our children before and after school after summer ended, but our schedules did not work well together. I would highly recommend Paige to anyone and would absolutely have her babysit our children again!

91 Parsons Drive, West Hartford, CT

Starting at $300/wk

We are pleased to invite you and your little ones to Yelena 's Educational Place. Our mission is to build an educational childcare program where the needs and interests of children come first. A place where children will receive the individual attention and care that they need to grow and learn at this important stage of their lives; where children feel safe and secure and comfortable enough to build strong friendships, and where parents can take comfort in knowing that their children are receiving the highest level of care. We offer full time/part time childcare for 15 months old-5 years olds. At Yelena 's Educational Place, we encourage our students to learn about the world around them, and the community they live in. All children benefit from exposure to the world at large, as long as the exposure and experience are in line with their developmental ability to engage in an activity. For younger children, this might mean a walk to the Fire Station or to the mailbox to mail their friend a letter or a buggy ride around the neighborhood provides much opportunity for language development as their teacher speaks to them about the things that they see as they go. At our program we have interest learning areas or centers: blocks/cars, dramatic play, sensory, art, music and movement, manipulatives and outdoors. The Creative Curriculum that we employ at our program is one that actively involves parents in their child's learning process by providing tools that extend the lessons of the day into the home at night.
Nationally recognized for being forward thinking, comprehensive, and rigorously researched, The Creative Curriculum is designed to help us/teachers prepare and implement content-rich, developmentally appropriate programs for children of any age. This curriculum uniquely balances teacher-planned and child-initiated learning, while emphasizing responsiveness to each child's strengths, interests, needs and learning styles in every developmental area.
Our Main Goals to support children to be: Creative, Inquisitive, Flexible, Critical thinkers, Purposeful and reflective, Social learners.
Yelena's Educational Place is a safe, nurturing, loving and creative place where Education , Play and Care go hand in hand.
My name is Yelena Pasternak and I am the owner of Yelena's Educational Place. I have been working in the early childhood education field since 1992. This wonderful journey has provided me with many amazing opportunities and life lessons along the way,
