Smyth has been working with children for over nine years. Upon graduating high school, she worked for a summer theater group, Once Upon Time... Children’s Theater, in Malibu, CA. It was during this experience that Smyth learned that listening to children and working with children can open not only their minds but hers as well. Allowing children to explore who they are and what they believe with their creative endeavors is very important to Smyth. She has nannied and babysat for families in California and New York. Ranging from infants to pre-teens and children with special needs. Smyth knows how to assist with day to day responsibilities, appointments, trips on the subway, and night time routines. She also has experience with taking children to museums, meal prep, homework and knows how to handle any situation. She loves being able to watch a child’s imagination grow. Smyth’s attention to listening to a child to figure out how their day is going or how they are feeling is superb.
Smyth’s favorite aspect about working with children is how a child’s curiosity is endless and it always keeps her on her toes! She loves to interact with children in creative play and see where their imagination can take them. She has learned a tremendous amount about New York from the kids she has watched. Smyth feels she is very lucky to be surrounded by some of the greatest kids.
