I love children. My hopes as their nanny is to make a connection with the child/children so that they feel secure. As nannies we spend so much time with your child and I feel like we must provide excellence and a nurturing environment. I have many years of experience as a nanny having worked for a family for 7 years. I took care of their 2 beautiful children since they were born. I cared for them providing a safe, nourishing, educational environment while making sure they had fun because this is all kids really want, to have fun. This included fun games, field trips to the library, museums and parks. It is important to me that the kids are active, have arts and crafts time, and reading. Once the kids started school my duties included drooping them off and picking them up along with other after school activity or doctor's appointment. I enjoy making light snacks and meals for school lunch or breakfast/dinner while making sure the playing area stays clean and tidy. I have helped at the church taking care of the children while the parents attended church simultaneously for the past years. I ave excellent references with a clean driving record. I am a mother of 2 children ages 25 and 12 years old. I speak fluent Spanish and adore all animals (I have a Shih tzu).

the first experience I got being around kids was my Grandmothers day care. I use to visit the day care center every now and then on school holidays. Then i took take of my cousin from her infant years till she was 5years old. Being around kids has always been a part of me. I then heard of being a Aupair. That`s when I decided to take my passion seriously. I took care of 4year old twins, a boy and a girl. I had a very good time with them, although we were not in the same page always but I must say, I learned a lot from them as much as they learned a lot from me too.
