Sofia H. - Seeking Work in Austin

Hourly rate12.00 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours
Years of childcare experience4 yrs of experience

Hi! I'm Sofia and I have always worked with children since I can remember starting off with my siblings when I was younger. I have worked with itty bitty kids from 4 months to older kids that are 18 years old. I've practically seen it all and there hasn't been an "impossible" child that I can't work with! Even the "most difficult" child has been able to work with me (so don't be worried about your kids!!). I am the oldest of 5 in my secular family, and in the middle between my cousins who are now having kids of their own. So childcare has become second nature to me!

I am a psychology and sociology student in my senior year at CU Boulder. I will be graduating in May, and after that am spending my summer as a camp counselor! I have a large family with many young kids, through which I've discovered how much I love children. When I visit my family, I spend the whole time chasing after my younger cousins and playing with superhero action figures. I also enjoy hiking, writing, drawing, and watching movies. After my summer job, I am moving to Austin and would love to be able to nanny as a full time job there.
