Experience Babysitter With Two Grown Kids Of Her Own.

Responds within a few days
I am a loving, caring person with years of experience working with kids of all age groups. I raised my own two wonderful children and am incredibly happy with the results. I have a grandson who is now 6 months old and I am currently helping my daughter with the baby. I like to work with children because they are so precious, innocent, sweet, and unpredictable. Every day I discover many new and interesting things about each of them regardless of the age. Children are our future and we must raise them to be good humans; kind, considerate and with progressive minds. My family and I have been extremely cautious with the Coronavirus and have been sheltering from the public. During this time sheltering in place I have explored more in the kitchen, constantly creating new meals for family. I am good cook and keep a neat household. I love helping people and it brings me joy to work with children and to provide aid to busy families. I am looking forward to meeting your children.
Background Check
Reviewed by Joanna K. 5/5 stars
Zina's tasks consisted of transporting our now 11 year old son to and from his various after school activities and cooking dinner. She did so much more. She anticipates what the family might need and does it without being prompted. If there is clothes in the dryer, she takes it out, folds out and puts it away. She keeps herself busy. She doesn't just sit if there. When we eat dinner, she waits for us to finish so that she can wash the dishes. In the meantime, she tidies the kitchen, organizes a drawer/pantry. When we have dinner using pre-packaged meals, she supplements with additional vegetables or protein to improve the meal. I have had a dozen helpers since my son was born, (at least 6 that lasted less than 2 weeks and 4 that lasted at least a year). I have also interviewed dozens more. Zina was by far the best. She is intelligent, industrious, thoughtful, and caring. She is also a great cook. We were lucky to have her for more than 2 years.
