Vanessa’s Bio

I am the oldest family member of my generation. I have been babysitting cousins since age 11 (an age most children still need a babysitter.) My sister was born when I was 13 and in many ways, especially as I’ve aged, she feels like a daughter to me. This position in my family helped me realize that I enjoy caring for, teaching and entertaining children of all ages. I am able to relate to the various needs of a child and therefore do my best to ensure an environment of safety and understanding. No matter the activity, I genuinely enjoy participating in anything appreciated by the children. I believe it is important to acknowledge that every family has different needs, expectations, and general routines. Communication between all parties is essential. I take pride in the fact that I am a fast learner and retain information very well. I am stable, responsible, and comfortable taking initiative, while also being adaptable and respectful of the requirements and preferences of the parents whose children are in my care.
