Child Care

I have a bachelor's degree in foreign languages in Cali Colombia where I worked as a bilingual teacher for 6 years, teaching children between 2 and 7 years old. I came to US several years ago and I have been employed as FT private Nanny for 3 years taking care of children from 3 months to 5 years old. I have experience with sleep training , schedules, meal prep, infant sign language, potty training, and teaching Spanish. I enjoy teaching children without any screen time throughout the day. My goal at all times is to keep children safe and happy.

I highly recommend Carolina as a nanny for your family. She has been our nanny for my 19mnth old son for the last year and has been exceptional. She has superior work ethic as a dedicated and dependable individual. She helped my son to nap better, learn sign language and be able to speak in both English and Spanish by age 1. She has excelled at teaching him and helping him grow. She works on craft projects and has story hours and music classes. She is well versed in child development and has an affinity towards children. She is both patient and caring in addition to being highly energetic to keep up with our son all day. She assists with his weekly laundry, and maintaining a clean play area, in addition to meal prep. She demonstrates respect to our parenting style while being able to make day to day decisions surrounding our son's care. She has been accommodating to our hectic work travel schedules and ensures I always haven updates throughout the day. My son adores her as do we.

I am a super reliable and responsible current graduate student at IIT pursuing my Master's degree in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling! I have over 6 years of experience working with children between the ages of 8 months and 14 years of age. I am working to pursue a career working with children and would love to gain more experience caring for kids as well as earning extra money to help me through graduate school. Incredibly willing to help out around the house, with homework, making meals and snacks, and keeping children entertained away from technology. I have experience working with children of various religious and ethnic backgrounds, can speak/read/write Arabic fluently, and would love to help your child learn Arabic as well if you are interested! My hourly rate is negotiable and I am more than willing to participate in a phone or video interview. Currently, my availability is limited due to my heavy course load and am only able to commit to one-time sittings

Saja has been an absolute godsend! She's worked with us consistently for about a month and we couldn't be happier. She is just lovely with our 5-year-old daughter and we feel so comfortable knowing that she is in good hands. When we tell her Saja is coming, she gets SO excited; she loves spending time with her. We also love that she is fluent in Arabic and she has offered to spend part of her babysitting time doing Arabic tutoring. She also helps with e learning! She is prompt, communicative, trustworthy/dependable, and overall just a gem. To boot, our 5 year old just loves her - Saja is so engaging and present with her. Thank you Saja!! We feel so lucky to have found you.

A Necessary Helping Hand

Avg response < 6 hrs
Hello Everyone! I am a newly available Nanny&House Manager. I am a young entrepreneur as well as college student. I will be graduating soon with a Marketing Degree. Children have always been my passion and it's what I'm best at. I look forward to the sunshine children bring on the daily basis. I was previously the Nanny for a family with two young children as well as a dog. These children were very active and participated in many activities in which I managed. I was in charge of maintaining their schedules and making sure they are organized and on time. I conduct their very busy lives and keep the children entertained with singing and dancing as well as an array of other arts and crafts.

My family is using Jasmin as a nanny to watch our three children while we are at work. She started with us when our kids were 3 months, 1.5 and 5 and will be ending with us soon when our kids are 18 months, 3 years, and 6. She could easily manage nap and bottle schedules and getting my kids to school and activities. She is punctual and flexible with her hours. When COVID-19 required at home learning she did a great job teaching my son at home while entertaining and maintaining consistency for the two younger ones. The three kids have a lot of energy and she keeps up with them. They love spending time with her and already are talking about how they will miss seeing her so regularly.
