Hi my name is Yadira. I love children and babies, and I love being a nanny! I'm 26 and have been a professional nanny for 10 years, caring for children from newborns through teenagers. I also regularly babysat for 4 years before becoming a nanny. I've worked full-time and live-out, cared for kids 24/7 while the parents were out of town for 7 days and nights, and traveled with the families. Being a nanny is a rewarding, wonderful job and I love spending my day caring for children! I like to be outdoors in some way with the children every day, and I always enjoy a good game of peek-a-boo or tag. I'm a fun, loving, and active nanny who realizes the important role I play in shaping a young one's future. I live in Mountainside, NJ. I have a car (Subaru Impreza) and I'm comfortable driving children. I'm currently looking for a full time nanny positing. I'm available to start as early as 6 a.m. and stay as late as 7 p.m. Thank you!
