10 yrs of experience

I'm currently in my fourth nanny share— it's my favourite way to work! The little ones I have now will turn 2 in June and July, and I plan to celebrate that milestone with them before seeking out new families to work with in long term positions starting summer 2018. I have many years experience with children 8 weeks to 8 years of age; I have worked as lead teacher in infant, toddler, kindergarten and mixed ages classrooms, cared for several 3-year-olds in my home as well as multiple infants (shares). I love busy toddlers and preschoolers! I'm very active, creative, highly verbal and love to share my interest in life sciences with my care kids. I prioritize safety, autonomy and health and have the experience and knowledge to engage children in developmentally and individually appropriate activities. I am less a nanny, than a governess. I am CPR/AED certified, and would love to meet with families interested in:

Development focused shared care, T-Th (7:30a-6:30p); occasional date, travel or overnight care, Th-M evenings (after 6:15 pm); event (wedding, party, etc) childcare, F-S (flexible).

Hi, my name is Krystal Mejia and I am 21 years old. I have about 5 years babysitting family kids and for friends. I currently am looking to get into the babysitting job industry again because I want to study to be a medical assistant and I'm planning on taking online classes. I am a very friendly person and I absolutely love kids and enjoy working with them. Babysitting to me isn't just watching them. I like to teach them and read to them. Is rather have them staying active than being on a phone or tablet! I recently had a beautiful baby girl, she's 2 months old and I am also bilingual in English and Spanish so if you want your child to learn some spanish I'm the nanny for you! Thank you for taking the time to read about me.

Well, where should I start, well around the age of 13 I started babysitting my oldest nephew, then few years went by and he had a little brother whom I also started babysitting. So now I was babysitting 2kids a toddler and a infant. Then a few more years go by and they end up having another baby brother, so now I’m babysitting all 3 boys which later down the road becomes a permanent stay for all 3 boys! I’m 35 years old now and just had my very own child who was born last year of August. So I have a whole lot of experience and I think I can get the job done.

Every since I was old enough to help out I’ve loved working with kids. I’ve gone from daycare, to nannying, to babysitting and everything in between. I enjoy being active, i.e. going for walks, dancing and singing, visiting museums, and just getting outside and being silly!

I’m open to light house work and can be available for the occasional overnight or weekend. I’m fluent in Italian and love cooking the food and baking so light meal prep is also an option for me.

I can’t wait to meet my new family!

Best Regards,

We are so lucky to have an amazing nanny. She has been with us for the past 9 months and we have been in a nanny share with another family. My son is 18 months and we'd love to find another family with a child around that age. Unfortunately, they no longer require her care, so we are looking for another family to join our share! Our nanny keeps the kids really active and speaks Spanish. She always has a positive attitude, encourages our son to continue his development, and is always on time. I can't imagine our son with anyone else! We have her from 7:45am to 6pm. We can be flexible and creative with coming up with an arrangement with the right family.
