I have experience with babies, toddles, twins, special education children, elementary children, and teens. All through college I did nanny jobs for two families in Los Gatos to pay for college. For one family, I took care of two small girls ages 5, 9. The other family had a small boy of age 10. That is where I got the love for teaching because we would do arts and crafts together, play sports, read books, do puzzles, and much more. I had to take them to/from school and sometimes to day camps. I also am part-time nanny for my niece that is 8 years old. She has soccer, basketball, karate, and art classes so I drive her to all that.

Hi! My name is Secylia and I have over 14 years of experience as a Nanny caring for newborns, twins and toddlers in the Los Altos/Mnt View/Sunnyvale area. I am looking to work on a regular basis full time for a warm and loving family. I have been babysitting and caring for children for many years now-my own children are full grown and I have dedicated the past 14 years to caring for children from birth through pre-school age. I typically work long term with my families and have worked with a number of families from the time the babies were born through 4 or 7 years old. I am very reliable, caring, responsible and dedicated to providing exceptional child care while also keeping the house running smoothly and assisting in light housekeeping, laundry, dishes, putting away toys, etc. I am highly attentive to the children I care for and work hard to keep them engaged and happy. I am also highly responsive to the needs of the family and am flexible and approachable. I am a native Spanish Speaker but am fluent in English.

I've had great expereinces with all the families I have worked for and the only reason I ever left a job was because it was either temporary or situations/needs changed.

The last family that gave me the opportunity to take care of their children was two weeks ago. They contact me via, It was wonderful they were going to stay only for three days and they had two beautiful daughters.
