Hi! I'm Nathalia. I'm a 25 years old full time student, hard worker, living in New Fairfield, CT. My Experience: As a babysitter, I have been assisting moms and dads since 2009. Most of my experience is related to younger children - infants and children up to age 9. I feel comfortable (and have experience) taking care of children while parents are away (business/vacation trips). Activities for children: day field trips to: parks, museums, aquarium, zoo (attractions nearby your home); picnics; arts and crafts; outside fun (blowing bubbles, coloring rocks, learning about mother nature), swimming pool; cooking; crafts; board games; sports; reading and acting out a book; make homemade play-doh; building a castle or spaceship out of a cardboard; bike riding; tag; hide and seek, etc. Some of the duties I've performed include: transportation to and from school and after school activities (sports, swimming, etc), cooking meals, help with homework, bath/showers, light housekeeping (such as tidy up kitchen and children's areas, laundry), grocery shopping, play dates. About me: I love kids and pets. I've always been very child-oriented. Family and friends would describe as motivated, trustworthy, outgoing, reliable and responsible. I am very respectful and I take directions well, but I am also able to act independently. I will check in regularly and make sure things are going well. I appreciate honesty. I am very warm, down to earth, affectionate and friendly. I have the ability to adjust to new circumstances quickly. Feel free to contact me anytime. Thank you for your time.  Nathalia
