Nina’s Bio

I started as a mother's helper at the age of 11, moved up to being a babysitter, to being a substitute teacher/caregiver at daycare/kindergarten in Europe, to doing kids programs at a yoga studio in Corona del Mar and after school care in Laguna Beach for a family.

Since 2008 I have worked as a Program Manager for kids camps all over the United States and Internationally, for Corporate Kids events, on the weekends. I have also worked as a kids entertainer for kids birthday parties, dressed up as different Disney princesses, which was absolutely hilarious. 

In these settings I gained experience, working with kids ranging from 6 weeks to 17 years old. I like doing crafts, reading books and being active with the kids. I am always interested in what kids have to say and how they perceive the world. I am athletic and I prefer healthy foods. I find it important to see how the parents treat their children so that I can work with their rules and habits.

You might think: a little over qualified for a babysitter, why would she post? As I got higher up in management rather than taking care of kids I actually worked less and less with the kids as my main focus was leading the counselors and babysitters. Also: I have been working in business on weekdays for a few years now, but I realized that that is not for me. Right now I just want to work in a field that I enjoy.

Nina is tender and attentive. She is well-spoken, prompt, and adaptable to the parents' wishes. I am very pleased with Nina's work. My 2-year old adores her, which is a good indicator, too!
