Hi, my name is Cara, and I would love to be your nanny! I have experience as a regular babysitter for infants, toddlers, and school aged children. Most recently, I worked as a live-in nanny for a family that welcomed their first child in the midst of the pandemic. Their son was 1 month old when I began caring for him, and he was about 14 months when my position concluded. In the fall of 2020, I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor of science in speech language pathology. As a student at UT, I took a series of speech, language, and early childhood development courses that have given me insight into the importance of providing nurturing, attentive, childcare. Babies begin to learn the communication patterns fundamental to their overall development in infancy, so I recognize that my role as a nanny is extremely meaningful. Read more I know that play facilitates development, so creative play is at the forefront of my nannying approach. I am certified in BLS/CPR and as a registered behavioral technician. I am fully vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine and I will always put the health and safety of your family first. I have a very positive relationship with the family that I previously worked with and would be happy to provide references, background checks, and driving records upon request. Thank you for your consideration!

We hired Cara to look after our 7-month-old son while in-between child care options. It is obvious she has a passion and connection with babies. She is responsible, punctual, and it is a huge relief having her in our home knowing we don't have to worry about the safety or happiness of our baby.
