I have had experience in child care for around 3 years, and I absolutely love working with children! My mom managed a Day Care in Boise, Idaho as well as an in home Day Care, and I helped her everyday take care of the children when in need, play with them, nurture them, and take care of them. I also have babysat many children of all ages, for hours in a row. I have taken care of a child with special needs who had a blood disease, so I feel comfortable with medications and child care when someone may be sick. I love getting to know children and their sweet and innocent personalities. I love getting to know them and what they're interested in, as well as getting to know the family that I will be working for, and making their life easier everyday!

I genuinely love kids! I have nannied and babysat since I was 13 and have experience with kids of all ages and behavioral skill sets. I plan to pursue graduate training in Psychology and am passionate about applying the latest research findings in child development to how I and others interact with kids. I also have seven nieces and nephews ranging in age from 3-15, so I am privy to developmental changes etc. I especially love the 6 month to 3 year old phase because children are learning at such a rapid pace - it's amazing to be apart of. Games, peek-a-boo, motor skills development, and singing and music are my go to's :) For older kids, I love to engage them in learningful activities related to their interests and hobbies. e.g. arts and crafts, sports, music. For older kids, I have learned to have an alternately firm but gentle approach -- allowing them to guide the relationship, yet stepping in with firm boundaries etc. if misbehavior happens.

I have worked with families with children of all ages, from newborn to teenagers. I love children and I am very good with them. The children I take care of I love and treat as if they were my own. I have always felt like a part of the family with the families that I have worked with. The family I currently nanny for has 2 boys: a 8 year old and a 4 year old. When I started, they only had a 1 boy, and he was 1 year old, but then they had another baby and I took care of him from birth. I still keep in touch with all of the families that I have worked with and I am confident that any of them would give me a wonderful reference. In addition to taking care of the children, I love to cook (I have a college degree from Chile as a nutritionist) and to do educational activities and outings with the children. Most of the families I have nannied for also appreciate that I speak Spanish to the children. I am a very safe driver with a clean record and I have a new SUV- I have no problem taxiing children to and from activities and school.

I first began babysitting when I was 14 giving me over 6 years of experience babysitting. I picked children up from school, spent quality time with them on homework, cooked healthy meals, and took them to-and-fro their activities. Children give me energy, and I feel that each one I have cared for has taught me a very valuable lesson. I also have been trained as a youth development professional, providing me with knowledge regarding early childhood development and education.

I am the oldest of 6 children, so not only do I have years of babysitting experience for other families, but I have had a tremendous amount of experience in my own home. I have lived in California, Texas, and Utah, and have babysat in the homes of many different types of families, communities, religions, and nationalities. I also worked in a State Developmental Center in Utah, caring for adults that are of the IQ of small children. I have enjoyed each experience and family that I have worked with, and it has become one of my favorite past-times!

I am the oldest girl in a family of eight children. I grew up with a baby on my hip. I have experience with newborns, twins, and large families. My summers in middle school through high school were spent as a nanny for a young family across town. I started babysitting outside of my family at ten and was booked every weekend. Most of my friends currently are nannies in Utah, and I often find myself inviting myself over to help out.
