My name is Anathea, I recently moved back to the Santa Cruz area from South Lake Tahoe.
I am an outgoing, artistic person, who absolutely loves kids.
I believe that every child should have a nanny or babysitter that matches not only their family's needs as well as their own.
I love working with kids and I am very experienced with children all ages, I have great references as well.
Previous to moving, I was a nanny here for a little over two years. In that time, I worked for two wonderful families, both part-time.
When I started two of the boys were under 2 years old, 1 and 1/2 and the other 4 months old.
With the baby always strapped to me, we would feed the chickens, go on walks, play with the dogs, cook meals together, play with blocks, read together, draw together, play in the kiddie pool together.
We were always all learning together as a team!
I also assisted with light house work. I'm also keeping up with laundry, dishes, toy cleanup etc.
The days that I did not work with that family I was with a
4-year-old boy with disabilities, we had so much fun together!
During the summer, we went to the pool together as often as possible, where we would swim together, as well as practice interactions with other children, and cooperation.
We would also go on walks together, do big art projects, cook, walk the dog, read stories, listen to wagon wheel (on repeat), and laugh.
I am still in touch with both families and babysit for them both on occasion!
I am very used to watching for multiple children at once, and feel very comfortable doing so!
I am looking forward to finding a great family to work with!
