Hi There, I'm a full time student and one of the jobs that fits in my schedule was babysitting... That was all start! a simple part-time job become something that I will probably going to do for the rest of my life! working with kids. I started being a babysitter for this adorable family, she was 5 at the time I start and he was 7... Was a lovely time with a lot of Art projects, runs, playtime, reading book (the 7 years old), "special plates" and a lot of Brazilian food cooking! which I am pretty good at... For the past 2 years and 3 months I've been with my little prince... He was only 4 months when I started being his nanny. I can proudly say that I helped to forge this smart, interesting, funny little guy! something that I will miss so very much!! however, like every life journey this also have to come to an end, since he will start full time pre-school. For this reason I am here again... Hoping to find a perfect match! like the past 2 families that I had the pleasure to work for! any questions about me or my references... just e-mail me! i will be very happy to replay ;)

Hello, my name is Tania. I am very experienced nanny/babysitter who has worked with four beautiful children (all in one family!) on and off for a couple of years now. In addition to that, I worked with few other families which after I have decided to proceed my full focus on becoming a nanny. I enjoy playing with kids, from babies to big, and I would love to keep your children busy and teach them new things. We can play games, cook together, dance, play hide and seek -- I like to have fun when I babysit! In addition to babysitting for other families, I come from a large family myself and I also have my own children. I'm familiar with the challenges with toddlers, pre-teens and adolescents. I think even your young teen would find me a responsible, no-nonsense, but friendly babysitter. I am from Ukraine and I speak 3 languages: Russian, Ukrainian and English.
