Meet Andrea

I have 10+ years experience as a nanny and a preschool teacher. I'm trained in Magda Gerber's work. She was a childcare educator who taught care givers how to interact with babies and children with respect. My focus is on allowing children to do for themselves, to learn how to take responsibility for themselves, to cooperate and to communicate with adults and other children/siblings to get their needs met in ways that respect others. I am very aware and a "sensitive observer" so I can be aware of a child's needs. I provide an environment that is physically safe, cognitively challenging and emotionally nurturing. I'm fun, patient, relaxed and like to collaborate with children to invent games and interesting things to do. To build their self esteem I acknowledge them for their capabilities and appreciate them when they contribute, even in the smallest of ways.

Andrea is a true gem! She worked for me for a year as a nanny/mommy's helper. She did it all- took care of teenagers and helped me with housework. She is also fantastic with pets. Her duties included picking the kids up from school, providing a snack, driving them to their many activities, taking care of the dog, running errands, making groceries, laundry, cooking, tidying up the house and she was even successful at helping the kids do their chores. My kids appreciated her great patience and sense of humor. I appreciated her hard work and reliability. She really was great and the family misses her a lot. We wish she hadn't moved. I highly recommend her to any other families. She is a pleasure to have around! You can't go wrong with her.
