To Dance Or Not To Dance? That Is Never The Question
I am very personable and great with children. I was a camp counselor for 6 years working with children between the ages of 4-13, I went on to babysit many of the kids from camp and their siblings. I worked in a daycare as an aid for multiple years. I have a lot of experience caring for children from newborns to pre-teens and multiples. I often babysit for friends and family members. For me light housework is expected when caring for a child in their home. Cleaning up a mess after a painting session, doing dishes and snack prep are part of what I offer as part of my babysitting/nanny services. It's important to me to help parents maintain a tidy Environment that they are accustomed to.
I was an athlete for many years, before I was a two sport collegiate athlete I was a professionally trained dancer. For 11 years I took dance classes in CT and NY, I trained in ballet, jazz, lyrical, modern, salsa and tap. I took parts in many competitions, recitals and performances. When I stopped dancing I switched to softball and volleyball, though I remained involved in dance as a teacher. I enjoy planning fun and safe activities such as exploring our local parks and learning about the different animals we see. I am an avid reader and love to discover a new book. I am a biology major and I offer homework help with a variety of subjects (math, science...).
I believe that kids should be silly and creative every chance they get; through art, music and dance. In short I am a very caring person that will go above and beyond for your family and I hope to help care for your little one(s).
