Part-Time Caregiver.

Hello! My child care experience goes back 10 years ago, I took care of baby twins, with brother toddler, In that time I also helped out for someone with a new born. After that I took care of two boys, one of them with autism. I always helped out other people who needed help, my experience range from new born to teen. With that experience I learned how to communicate, very important, I've learned to be a team with the families I worked for, I learned that when it comes to children you have to be patient, loving, setting your feelings aside, being positive, energetic and so many things. I love to read, but I also love to take on anything, and therefore I like it when children explore different things, when doing activities that will broader their way of thinking. I can be very flexible, I can do about anything, I mean there's limits, but yes, I will try before saying I can't. If you feel I can be part of your family and help, I will be happy to hear from you. Kind Regards

Leticia worked for our family for a little over 2 years. She really came to our rescue. At that time, we had two kids under the age of 4 plus a newborn (so three kids under the age of 4). She is a Super Nanny- able to manage kids, do fun things with them, juggle different schedules, drive, cook, clean, and basically be the mother's helper one wishes to have. I can't recommend her enough. Now - this week- my kids started school / preschool and losing Leticia will be our great loss but another family's great gain. One last thing: Leticia is as solid as a rock. You can depend on her. She is honest, caring, kind, funny, and a team player.

Pastry Chef And Nanny!

Responds within a few days
Hello! My name is Melissa. I am 25 years old and a pastry chef graduate from Le Cordon Bleu. I currently am not working because of COVID, and it has allowed me to structure my life working for myself instead of another bakery so I am looking for a position to help me supplement some investment income. While in high school and culinary school I nannied for a source of income. I have always found child care to be a passion of mine, and love that no matter what age I can connect with a child and improve their day. I have impeccable references who would love to speak to you, and many years of experience with ages 6 months to 15 years! I have watched up to 5 children at once and have experience with twins and special needs. In middle school I aided for special needs classes and in high school I took years of child hood development classes where I would not only learn about children but also run a daycare with my classmates! We are a COVID safe household.

Melissa was a full-time nanny for our son, and then transitioned to a sitter for events and nights out. She is incredibly patient, super attentive, creative and fun, and hands-down our kids' favorite care provider! Her culinary experience resulted in a ton of yummy and exciting baking projects, which the whole family enjoyed. My son has special needs and had extremely challenging behaviors, and Melissa provided skilled and compassionate care for him. She implemented (and improved upon!) complex behavior reinforcement plans, had the patience of a saint during the trying times, and was excellent at communicating about how each day went. No matter how difficult the day was, she left with a smile on her face, reassuring words, and unwavering commitment. She is very responsible, and has taken both of my sons on multiple outings and provided after school pickup. I can't say enough wonderful things about Melissa - she's an absolute gem! My sons think the world of her, and so do we!
