I have cared for children since 4 months of their age till teenage years.
I am very mature, kind, nurturing, fun and organized. I am also very adaptable, understanding and easy to communicate with. I am health and fitness oriented and my passion is healthy foods and nature play. I love to prepare healthy meals and snacks from scratch and educate children about importance of healthy eating and exercise. I am also a certified health coach which I like to apply at my nanny work (healthy smoothies and snacks, talking with kids about healthy foods).
My role is inspiring kids to have fun learning every day. I pay attention to their individual needs and apply great communication skills while being calm and patient. I love being outdoors and don't mind getting messy with dirt outside, jumping in puddles or on a trampoline. I enjoy taking children to different parks, nature, walks, beaches or taking day trips to zoos, museums and other fun places. Children learn from us so I like to be a great example.
I create safe, fun and educational environment for your children every day. I love reading stories, doing puzzles, arts and crafts and other creative age appropriate games.
My hobbies are spending time outdoors (especially in nature and around animals), traveling and spending quality time with family and friends. Some of my favorite outdoor adventures are hiking, exploring national parks and visiting beaches. I love swimming in the ocean, cycling, horseback riding, fitness and nature hikes. I am previously certified Bowen Therapist and Holistic Coach.

What parents love about me
I like to be on time or arrive little earlier, I am quite energetic and always very smiley and positive. Many kids tell me I am very friendly and little ones feel very comfortable and safe with me. Safety is number one for me and keeping the atmosphere fun and educational. I respect each child's individuality and I am very understanding. I am very adaptable and like to help with whatever needs to be done. I am easy to communicate with and I am open to resolving any issues that might come up as smooth as possible. I respect people's homes and their privacy.
What kids love about me
Kids love how friendly and fun I am around them. They build a very strong relationship with me often and feel they can trust me completely. They love how spontaneous I am and create different games and activities for them. They love how I get involved with them in their play. They often want me to read lots of stories and play fun games like puzzles, Legos or building blocks, draw pictures and color and make arts and crafts. They like me being very active and taking them to parks, zoos, museums and their activities.
What I love about this work
Looking after children is a mutual learning experience which makes us all grow to better people. By being patient and understanding, having great communication skills depending on child's individuality and being able to solve any issues is very rewarding. I love being around children and see their daily smiles while having fun exploring new things each day together. I love to help others and I feel like I understand children a lot so this is perfect work for me while being able to help parents.
