Annie the Nannie
Hello I'm a 35 year old woman born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia. I am devoted to children and love to babysit. I also work as a professional graphic designer, voiceover recording artist, and Spanish tutor, and am able to share these skills with the children.
I'm trilingual (native Spanish, fluent English and conversational Italian), vegetarian, nature lover and positive.
I provide childcare because kids are delightful company and often share a wisdom that helps answer our adult questions. I grew up in a beautiful family with healthy values, which allows me to enjoy supervising and guiding kids. I make sure to listen to children, and help them when they feel confused about their feelings, yet still oversee them in a proper way.
I have worked with children since I was in college, in many cases in poor schools. This includes teaching arts and crafts at TRAZOS Art Academy in Bogotá. Over the past 3 years in the United States (2013-2015), I have helped families during fall and summer seasons to keep activities and fun in motion.
So far, I have taken care of toddlers, and children up to age 10 and have been involved with helping those with special needs because of a close relative (Brain Pasly). I'M LOOKING FOR A PART TIME JOB AFTER SCHOOL IN PARK SLOPE PREFERABLY, and occasionally at night. I have a flexible schedule and may be able to work at different times on different days as long as it covers at least 15-20hrs/week.
I can perform laundry duties and will always leave the space nice and neat. I'm warm and loving. When keeping discipline, I use common sense and respect, helping the kids to understand their emotions with love and patience. I like to give children fun experiences in arts & crafts, nature, music, games, yoga and books.
