I began babysitting as a teenager. After graduating college and having a successful career, I became a mom of my own two boys - now ages 11 and 13. As they grew up, I worked at their daycare center for preschoolers, tutored after-school children in groups of 10-15 (elementary education), and provided private, one-one-one tutoring for teens and college students. As a new mom, I initially continued my career and hired nannies for my own children - so I can empathize with the changing demands of your job, your concerns about finding a nanny who you trust, and your angst about leaving your children with a caregiver while you are away from home. Rest assured that your children will be provided the best possible care while they are with me. I am also more than happy to run errands, prepare meals, and clean/do laundry. I am extremely patient, very active, fun-loving - and most importantly, responsible. The safety of your children is my top priority!

Hello there, my name is Marta, and I would love to care for and nurture your little ones. If you are interested in having a Nana-Nanny, who is totally focused on the love, safety and well being of your little ones, then we might be a match . With my younger charges, I focus on playing, rocking, singing, reading and nurturing. Diapers get changed in a timely matter, noses get wiped, and tears get soothed. For older children, I always have my "Nanny Bag", filled with all sorts of fun arts, crafts, and educational activities. Holiday crafts, cookie baking and decorating, painting, and attention to each child's personal needs. I am dependable, kind, and good with animals. I have taken CPR and first aid classes, and I know what to do in an emergency, should one arise. I am a great cook, so I can help in that area if needed. My rates start at $15. 00 an hour. If you need a great Mary Poppins Nanny, with a little Mrs. D thrown in for good measure, I am she.

I have always loved kids. Now I have two grandbabies 4yrs and 18month boys. I only get to see the yearly they live in LA. So I'm retired now and on disability after having back surgery I would love to be a Nanny for a baby or child, watching them grow and giving parents the sense to not worry and know their child is taken care of just as if I was their grandma. Watching them grow and learn new things every day would be a God send.
