Hello! Thank you for viewing my profile! I'm Ariana, 18 years old and am currently in college majoring in Psychology. I'm looking to be a babysitter because I absolutely love working with kids! I've worked both in retail and as a nanny for three years now so I have experience with caring for children under the age of 8. I am creative, organized, and well planned out babysitter who will occasionally bring in activities and art crafts to do. I hope that I may be the right fit for your family, and we may talk further, you won't be disappointed! (:

We have two incredible children, ages 5 and 7, and we're looking for a part-time caregiver for them in Palo Alto. Our youngest son is atypically developing but has made leaps and bounds with occupational therapy and the support of amazing teachers and caregivers. Given our current nanny is moving to the east coast, we're now looking for someone to support both kids at home during this unorthodox time. This will include supporting homework, social-emotional development, occupational therapy goals (training provided), and light tidying after meals. Importantly, we take COVID precautions seriously and will only work with others who do the same.
