Thank you for visiting my profile. My name is Maria Velazquez, I’m 49 years old, mature mother of 2 great children. My daughter is 22 years old ( RN) and my son is 19 years old and going to College. I’m a loving caregiver, with 22 years experience. I’m an energetic, patient, creative and responsible person.    I’m reliable and trustworthy; my time spent in your home will be devoted exclusively to your children and their needs. Spanish is my first language but I speak English fluently. I have outstanding references and long-term relationships with many families and I place high value on respect, discipline and education.    I believe that children should have fun, be active and learn responsibility.  I feel that I would bring a fair, warm and comfortable environment to a family in need of quality childcare. I know flexibility is important to service families so I can Read more be available to you also for "on call" needs, as I am aware that things happen sometimes and we all need help  or just simply a night out.   I will care for your child according to your family’s guidelines and rules, while providing a safe and loving environment. Please contact me if you have any questions or feel I would be a good fit for your family.
