Valerie’s Bio

I am a  Nanny from Los Angeles CA.  I also do someon call babysitting on the side.   I try to schedule  these around my existing full time job.    Presently I just moved backto the Sherman oaks  area, and am searching for some on call or parttime babysitting.    my babysitting style  first and foremost,    am NOT the type of babysitter who is dependent on the T.V for your a childs primary source of  entertainment,    whether am babysitting,     or in a permenant Nanny position,.     I do feel educational programs are great in moderation or some relaxing down time after school,  or  right before bedtime ( with parents permission ) I feel like theres so much more to do outdoors (weather permitting)  and indoors as well.  I perfer to engage in a child in some crafts,  or anything activities they have a flair or special interest in .     ( Because  contray to popular beliefs not all children are interested in crafts.   ) theres outside play,   for example... my last babysitting date, she is 3  years old we created a special box with all our activities inside,  this box was just for us when I came to babysit.  when i arrived at the door she would happily greet me, and run  to get our special activities box.  That day we colored a big  refridgerator size card board box with markers,  stickers,  and glued colored pipe cleaners, cotten balls, and what ever else we could find outside,  and painted our names on the front, pretended we were making a princess castle. .  parent/caregiver interaction is great,  but its  also important  we refrain from their  "Directing Play"  for example.......If a child is coloring in his/her coloring book  and wants to paint the frog yellow with pink spots,... Let Them... try not to suggest other colors,  or stay in the lines etc,    let them express their ceativity the way they need to. eventually they will learn all these life  lessons about " what color a frog is?,   or learn how to stay with the  lines etc.  I do understand there are times that children need to be Re-directed when demostrating  unconstrutive,  unsafe behavior,  or testing parental set boundries.

Val is a lovely warm nanny and sitter. She prepares activities for the children and her experience with preschoolers really shows. Was very confident in leaving our five children in her care.
