Meet Monika
Hi, I'm a mom of a 3 1/2 year old cute little boy. I'm looking for a nice family who needs a babysitter and that would be happy to have my son as a playmate of their child also. My son is very social and friendly. The family I worked for had to move to Connecticut. They had an 8 month old baby, I started to take care of him full time when he was 2 months old. My son is still mentioning him as "my baby" and the mom just sent me a beautiful recommendation letter and she'll be happy to share any information about me.

I'm a loving mom and I know exactly how you feel when you have to leave your child to somebody else (I still can't do it) even for a few hours. I promise to take care of your baby as if he were mine, to keep him happy and comfortable. I'm happy to engage with children in a variety of play and educational activities. I think it's also important to spend some time outside in fresh air everyday, unless there is poor weather. I don't mind doing mild housekeeping around the baby, preparing meals, cleaning up toys, laundry, etc.
As a mom I'm extremely aware of safety precautions and I would never leave a child unattended, even if he is taking a nap.
I used to work in a Montessori school as an assistant teacher. Mainly my job was to take care of 2, sometimes 3 babies at a time which I loved to do, while my son was in the toddler room. I had to work 10-11 hours a day and it was just too long for my son. Now I'm "only" willing to work 8 hours a day because I also have to take care of my family after work. I try to cook dinner every day.

I was born and raised in Hungary. I have a Master's degree in Literature, Hungarian Grammar and Social Studies. I also speak some Spanish. I used to be a gymnast and I'm still very energetic and a hardworking person.

Please contact me anytime. Thank you for your time!

I had the opportunity to have Mrs. Ivan as my daughter's child care professional and got to know her quite well during that time. I found her to be a motivated, intelligent, and maternal individual. I have become familiar with her insights into the variety of activities that young developing children thrive upon. It is evident; how much she cares to make a positive influence in our home and for the family as a whole. Monika cared for my 8 month old at our home daily for several weeks. During her time with us, she tended to feeding by daughter milk and solid food, changing diapers and soothing her for nap-times. Monika read stories to my daughter and played games that were developmentally appropriate. She is able to ease the stresses of being a working mom by tending to tasks that can be cumbersome. Mrs. Ivan tended to the dishwasher daily and vacuumed occasionally when needed. She took on the responsibility of washing the baby's clothing once a week. Additionally, she and her 4-year old son, took attentive care of our dog. Nurturing children is her forte, however, she embraced my household and kept running through out the day. Light housekeeping, organizing baby toys, and gardening only for enjoyment are only natural characteristics of Monika. Through her own appreciation of being outside, she made certain, that on weather-permitting days, everyone would go outside to play. If you are considering Monika for any childcare position, take it from me, you won't find a more nurturing, loyal, hard-working, or fair-minded applicant. She is that rare person born to be with children. Posted May 2, 2013
