Spanish Native Speaker And Experienced Nanny/Babysitter

Avg response < 14 hrs
I have plenty of experience working with infants and toddlers. I am a Spanish native speaker, but also can communicate in English pretty well. In addition to all my cares, I have taught all my charges how to speak the language, showing them the beauty of Spanish through songs, games, and books. Back in my country, I volunteered at a hospital where children suffering from cancer were in need of help and company for few hours a day. They mostly lost their school year, so our mission was to keep them up with their school basic lessons (Spanish, math, science, etc.), so I was trained in basic teaching activities and plans. I love being active, enjoying everything this city has to offer, so I like going to the park, playground, museums, pool, beach, library, everywhere we can learn and have fun at the same time! I have been dancing since I could walk. I love dancing! I am an amateur dancer with some lessons taken. I was performing in the most important festivals and shows around my city, gaining experience in stage performance. In Chicago, I was part of a Dance Center, a dance company dedicated to diffuse Peruvian and dance culture around the city and suburbs. We have been part of many festivals, shows, and parades. I can help your children develop their motor skills, rhythm, or just having fun and dance while listening to Spanish songs. I can combine activities (dance, music, and Spanish) so your child can be very active while learn other language! I like to have a close relationship with the parents, so we can talk over your kids' needs and difficulties during their development and help them together, as a team. I am looking for a long-term position with an easygoing, professional, and well-organized family, who can treat me with respect and accept me as a member of it.

Hello! My name is Kara and I would love to help you care for your child/children. I have over 20 years of experience working with children. My passion of caring for children started as a teenager watching my mother run her daycare from our home. I have worked with children of all ages, in their homes, at daycare centers, in public schools, and my most rewarding time working in an emergency youth shelter. Some of my skills/talents are planning activities, making lesson plans, I do laundry, help with potty training, handle breast milk/formula, and I love cooking. I am into health and fitness, so being active with your little one in outdoor activities is fun for me! I am a Newborn Care Specialist and I am currently working on becoming a Postpartum Doula. It never hurts to increase your knowledge and add to your repertoire. Babysitter. Love kids.

Kara is wonderful!! She loves children and you can tell she so genuinely enjoys caring for them. She has been caring for our daughter since 6 weeks (she's now 18 weeks) and she reads to her, they do tummy time, go for walks, have conversations, learn songs, etc. She has helped us set a schedule and is great at communicating her eating/sleeping while in her care. I work from home a lot while Kara nannies so I get to see and hear more of their interaction than if I was away from the house the whole time and can say with certainty Kara is THE BEST!!
