I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. The child's safety is my number one goal. After this, I strive to maintain a loving and fun environment, in which the child can grow and develop to reach their utmost potential. I consider myself as a friend to the child. My duty is to maintain the rules and goals of the parents. I then fulfill these principles through play time, games, exploration, reading time, crafts and various outdoor/indoor activities. As a caregiver, I have been able to motivate the child/children in establishing a relationship by being a positive, energetic, fun, creative, loving and an enthusiastic caregiver. I like to encourage them to love, care and be prepared for the many challenges we have in life. I enjoy the process of child development, as he or she is learning about him/herself, his/her own surroundings, and abilities for growth. I have extensive experience with newborns. I have 10 nieces and nephews, whom I helped care for since birth. I have a special relationship with every child whom I have in my hands. The care that I give him or her is the same care that I would expect someone to give my own child. I love to cook and bake. I enjoy planning family gatherings, parties and planning the party menu. I enjoy taking the kids to the zoo, parks, libraries, museum, and etc. (when weather permits), and also taking them to different activities around the community. I enjoy doing craft projects with them, and seeing their faces when it is all done is a huge reward. I will roll in the mud with them, and go down to their level when needed to keep them entertained and happy. I like reading to them, and to help them develop their learning skills. I have my own insured, four-door transportation vehicle. I will never go on vacation unless the family is also on vacation, in other words, my vacation time is at your convenience. My duties as your caregiver will include taking care of your child to the best of my ability, taking care of him/her, as if I was caring for my own.

Nilsa, worked with our family for a year and in that year, she has become and extension of our family. We would recommend Nilsa over and over again and take her back in a minute - if she moved back to Chicago. She is an expert in childcare and was extremely helpful to our family when she started working with us when my son was 3 months and I went back to work. This transition could have been extremely difficult and worrisome but she completely put me at ease and helped us raise our son. Every step of the way, teething, eating, walking, Nilsa knew the way and helped our family. She is a wonderful person and an amazing Nanny!
