Hello! My name is Maria. I am a mom to two grown children, my daughter is 19 years old and son 34 years old. I love working with children. Infants and toddlers are my favorite to work with because I love watching them learn and grow. I enjoy creating art, helping out with activities, and teaching children Spanish.
Recently, I’ve started a position with two teenagers. One of the children has down syndrome. When I get to work, I help with school drop offs, pick-ups, helping with their meals, playing games, and homework.
With my previous nanny job. I was with a family for 5 years in Petaluma. I started when the boy was 3 months old until 5 years old. Over the years, I helped with their development, singing, dancing, reading, taking walks to the parks, and swimming in the summer-time. Some of my other responsibilities included housekeeping, running errands, meals, pick-up/drop-off’s to school.
My work before becoming a nanny was being a caregiver. Working as both a nanny and a caregiver, I’ve been told I have a lot of patience and a calm demeanor.
