I moved to the U. S. A from Brazil 18 years ago, being away from my family I turned to helping other families take care of their little ones. I have extensive experience (12years) taking care of infant, toddlers, preschoolers and young teens.
My main functions as a part time sitter/ full time Nanny: light house keeping, light cooking, kids laundry, sleep training, potty training, baby massage, play time and so on. I have worked with twins/multiples and in nanny share arrangement. I love what I do and hope to continue in this field for a long time. I only implement rules and boundaries set forth by parents. When working with children no matter the age respect and trust between parents and person caring for your child will determine the success of your child's growth. Patience and repetition are important to have during activities to work on engaging their visual focus, hearing, motor skills and muscle toning with appropriate games for a child's age level. Reading and music play also helps with language and cognitive development which are fundamental important especially at a young age. Parents input are always respected and appreciated.
