02 Oct Sitter Spotlight: Arelys A.
Future teacher. Daycare professional. Bilingual babysitter. And most importantly, Mom. They all add up to the lovely Arelys A., Hello Sitter Hamptons babysitter to some very lucky kiddos, as evidenced by the consistent five-star reviews. “She was amazing!!! The absolute best sitter my family has had in a long time!,” gushes Hello Sitter user Hope B. We quite agree!
From her personal life as a mom of two running a daycare, to her current professional ambitions of becoming an elementary school teacher, Arelys is all about the next generation. “I have always enjoyed working with children. After having my first child, I felt the need to follow my dreams and start a childcare business in my home. I owned and operated a successful childcare business for 12 years,” she shared. “I worked with toddlers, preschoolers and school age children. Having the opportunity to play a major role in the development of so many young children was absolutely priceless.”
Lately she’s been spending her days as a teacher’s assistant while she finishes up her masters in Early Childhood Education and Special Education at St. Joseph’s, and accepting Hello Sitter sessions in her free time. Experienced and engaged, plus available on weekends: that’s basically the babysitter trifecta, no? We told you she was great. Here’s a little more about Arelys.
Meet Hamptons Babysitter Arelys A.
Hails from: Brooklyn
And she has: Two daughters, ages 14 & 11
So it makes sense that she identifies with: “Wonder Woman. [We have] similar characteristics: free and independent spirited, always looking out for others, nurturing, a huge heart, and confident.”
“Wonder Arelys” conquers separation anxiety: “I like to position myself at eye level with the child and reassure them that mom and dad will return soon. I encourage the child to say goodbye before the parents leave. If they are still having a hard time, I like to bring up the planned activities for the night. That always seems to get their attention.”
Would you believe she’s in her 40s: “I can still behave like an adult, but have as much fun as the kids!”
Like she loves: Magformers!
And the classics: as in, Green Eggs and Ham, the Very Hungry Caterpillar, Corduroy, and Brown Bear, Brown Bear
Plus she always ready to: play outdoors, paint or color, read, sing songs in English and Spanish, or do fun food activities
And just like the kiddos, she goes to school! “In graduate school one of the most important things that I have learned is that we should treat every child’s need individually. All children learn differently and at their own pace. When working with children, parents’ and educators’ goals should always be to help each child succeed.”
The parents say: ★★★★★
“Arelys was great! Punctual, attentive to detail, good about playing and following my son’s lead. We’ve hired her twice through Hello Sitter and I’d hire her again!” – Maureen M.
