Meet Val

  • Speaks Spanish
  • Comfortable with pets

Hello ! I am 33 years old. I have experience since the last 15 years in the Child Care career. I consider myself as an educated, enterprising and empathic human being. I come from an artistic family and I always try to share within my work environment the values I learned at home with my family, in my personal education, labor and life experiences. I am perfectly conscious of all the responsibilities this profession requires and I assume them with joy, respect and creativity as well as with maturity and gratitude. Excellent communication (writing and speaking) skills. Fluent in Spanish and English. *little bit of French and Japanese, which both, I am currently persuading. Facility to multitask and ability to blend in; into each family needs, traditions and lifestyle. I can cook and enjoy it a lot! I always try to make children eat fun but mainly, nourishing and healthy Read more meals. I truly enjoy art, music, nature and crafts. Thereby, I primarily focus on a creative, educational and developmental child care work. For the sake of not only watching, but stimulating and engaging children I work with. I always care about leaving my working areas just the way I understand parents would like to find them after a day of work where all what they deserve is to relax and enjoy themselves with their kids. To work with children makes me happy because I've found it is a great way to keep myself each day more creative, challenged, active and committed to a family, to society, and last but not least, a commitment to my own life and goals. This vocation also involves my experience, studies, personal interests and matches perfectly with my current lifestyle, further education and professional development. Excellent references can be sent upon request. Ps- I am the kind of Child caregiver that would do anything out of a card box. Even if it means taking a pretend boat with the kids to a pretend beach on the peak winter days !

Val was our full-time sitter for my 2 1/2 year old for 6 months (until I had my second baby) and we couldn't have been more thrilled with her. She is warm, loving, thoughtful, smart, invested, nurturing, and highly creative! I would come home to see her and Lola engaged in making paper mache sculptures or doing amazing paintings, or talking in Spanish. She has so much energy and found so many activities in the neighborhood for her and Lola to do. This is the sitter who is playing on the monkey bars with your kid, not sitting on the bench! Before this, she worked with a family in the city taking care of 3 boys full time so she is really extremely capable!! She is absolutely lovely to be around and easy to communicate with. An absolute top-notch nanny/babysitter-- Love her!!
