Mirella’s Bio

Hi! My name is Mirella and I absolutely love children! I've been working with them for more than 17 years now. I graduated from Columbia College studying music business management and marketing, as well as early childhood education. I also have a master's degree in internet marketing. I have extensive experience and education in child development that I am constantly continuing. I have been a babysitter, professional nanny, daycare provider, nursery attendant, camp counselor, tutor, teacher, etc. I am bilingual in English and Spanish, as well as cpr and first aid trained and certified. I participated in the 2012 national nanny training day and happiest baby on the block certifications. I'm an active member of the International Nanny Association. I am a newborn care specialist. I love encouraging language, music, and reading. I also love to do outdoor activities and arts & crafts. Most importantly, I truly adore children! I treat each child as if they are my own to give them the best love and care possible. More than anything, I love being a positive and loving influence on their development and in their lives. I have had various background checks done and have excellent references. Please contact me if you think I may be a great fit for your family. Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Mirella is an excellent babysitter! Our 2-1/2 year old daughter took to her instantly--she wanted her to stay and play immediately after our initial interview. She gets very excited every time Mirella comes over and is never sad to see me leave--which puts me right at ease. Mirella clearly enjoys children and is very knowledgeable and professional. She promptly responds to phone calls/messages, and is always on time. I know my daughter is in good hands with Mirella. She is a very caring, competent babysitter.

Mirella has been watching our daughter for 3 years and has been fantastic. She has an obvious love of children and her interactions with our daughter have always been top notch- appropriate, loving, caring, and educational. She is very responsible, always punctual, and professional. She puts the needs of our child before her own when she is in charge. We never regreted hiring Mirella to watch our daughter. She has exceeded our expectations!!

Mirella is fantastic. She's very friendly and showed up on time even on relatively short notice. Our one year old daughter has a great time with her and is in such a good mood when we get home that sometimes I think we should have stayed out longer.

I would recommend Mirella to anyone, only I don't want all of her time taken up with other people's children.

Mirella is fantastic. Our daughter gets excited when Mirella comes over. Our daughter normally has a bit of anxiety around strangers, but Mirella made her immediately comfortable. We always come home to a tidy house, even though we didn't ask Mirella to straighten. We always feel very confident leaving our daughter in Mirella's care.

Confirmed the appointment and canceled the appointment 30 minutes before the appointment without a reason. Not very polite on the phone as well. Would not hire her. - Daisy C.

Provider's Response

She rescheduled the interview last minute and I was not able to make it. I tried reschedule, but did not get any response. We did have a bad connection due to my phone having bad reception at my former apartment.
