Jacinta B

Experienced Childcare Provider Available

Sitter in Stone Ridge

I have been caring for children of all ages for 30 years. I spent 5 years as an assistant teacher at a progressive independent school; and another 6 years facilitating peer education programs at Planned Parenthood for teenagers & young adults. I am an artist and have many arts & crafts ideas to keep children engaged. As a former teacher, I am able to help with school assignments. I have flexible hours (days & evenings) and am available for either once-in-a-while engagements or on a regular basis. I am able to hold firm boundaries with children while maintaining a sense of humor and support. I have a great sense of adventure and creativity; and would never just put your children in front of a TV/computer. I am an excellent cook who can provide healthy meals. I have done Childcare for many Hudson Valley families in the last 15 years and can provide an extensive list of references. I have never had a car accident. $18/hour for one child. $20/hour for 2 children. I am not your typical Childcare provider. You can trust me like you would trust a beloved aunt or another parent.

Jacinta B. is an exceptional sitter. I have used her twice when at a work conference, and wish we lived closer to use her more often. My 4 year old adores her and they have much outdoor play and creative fun together. Highly recommend!

My daughter, who is now 17, still feels a close bond to Jacinta, who worked with us when Ruby was 1/2 - 5/6 years old. Not only did my kid feel safe with Jacinta, she also felt seen and heard. Besides the routine work of fetching her from or taking her to daycare (consistently on time), feeding her and putting her to bed, Jacinta brought in a whole other level of care and nurturing through her tremendous creative spirit and enormous pool of artistic talent. With patience, kind guidance and genuine empathy Jacinta helped Ruby develop her artistic creativity and comfortably supported her in being exactly who she was. As Jacinta's colleague a few years ago, I have also witnessed her as an assistant in the elementary school classroom and have been impressed with her patience, her ability to adapt and think creatively on the spot and by the love and respect she commanded from the students and the faculty. I highly recommend Jacinta in her work as an artist and caretaker of young children.
