I have 15 years of experience taking care of family and friends children in a house setting. I bond quickly with children and I feel adults can learn just as much from children as they can learn from us. I encourage outdoor activities and limit screen time. I feel it's important to have a connection to nature right from a young age. I am fluent in Spanish and also I know basic Malayalam which is a language from Kerala India. I would be happy to teach a second language to your children. I also have had some experience working with children that had mild autism.
