Full-time Child Care

Responds within minutes
I love working with children. I have more than 20 years of experience. I have worked at home and outside home. I worked in a Family Daycare and as a Nanny. I have taken care of babies, toddlers, children of all ages up to 12 years old. I like to color, paint, crafts, read and tell stories. I also like to play barbies, cars, train, dress up make up and more. I enjoy going for walks, park, zoo and other fun places for kids. I have been in the Children Ministry at my church for more than 25 years.

Over the two and a half years that Cristina has worked for us, she has truly become part of our family. She started nannying for us when our older daughter was 6 months old. We have since had another daughter (5 months old currently) whom Cristina has helped care for since birth. She is great with our younger children and has past experience working with older children as well. Cristina devotes her full attention to our children, is never distracted and constantly coming up with creative games and activities. Every time she gives our 3 year old a bath, they grab a handful of Tupperware or toys and Cristina comes up with a fun new game to play. She is extremely patient, loving, and nurturing with both girls. Our daughter talks about "Ti-Ti" as though she's both her friend and a close family member. Cristina also conducts herself extremely professionally. She is always on time, has rarely taken days off and communicates proactively when she has an appointment, or something comes up.
