Meet Cara

  • Comfortable with pets

I love children and my compassionate nature and friendly personality makes me get along with them in no time. I am able to keep children happy and this quality makes me happy as well. I enjoy developing kids emotionally, socially and physically, which is the main reason why I want this job. I am punctual, energetic and dependable person. Also, I am CPR and First Aid certified, above all, I understand children’s varying developmental needs. I have more than 10 years of hands-on experience in babysitting with different families and agencies. Being that I have cared for children since I was in my early teens, I know the functions of this job very well. Once my neighbors asked me to look after their children when they were going to a concert, there I found my potential of looking after children. I have cared for multiple children at once, special needs Read more and infants; I have been a live-in nanny for families during the summer or on vacations. As well as a weekly and/or weekend babysitting. I love the outdoors and trying new restaurants in the city. I enjoy sculptures and cooking; I make pottery and I also enjoy other craft making!! I am currently going back to school to finish my degree in early childhood education(which I am taking online courses to complete; not to interfere with my daily duties for the kids). I have lived in Philadelphia for 10+ years and absolutely love this city!
