Before I became a mother myself, I worked in a daycare center as a teacher's aide where I realized how much I love to work with children. After that great experience I was offered a job as a Nanny, where I learned so much and concluded that I'm really good with helping a family raise their children. Children have been a part of my life for more that 25 years, including the time of raising my very own. I feel there is no better training than being a parent and working with many families in this field. I've been fortunate to always find the right family; a family that takes me as one of their own; a family that trusts the decisions I make for the children; a family that values my suggestions and discusses them with me; and finally, a family that understands that working as a team is very important for the well-being of the children and that communication between the parents and I is essential to recognizing the development of those precious kids. I grew up in a different culture and like to share some of my values with the families, values that are important to me like respect for others, good manners, generosity, kindness, sharing, compassion and love. In addition I help the children to develop social skills needed to interact with other children their age as well as healthy eating habits and preparing healthy meals. I also love to read and play games, take them to places where they can be exposed to new experiences i. e playgrounds, children's music concerts, libraries, farms, local beaches, or even the grocery store. Every experience counts! I'm a very reliable, trustworthy and very organized person; therefore, I teach the children to keep the house organized by helping to clean up their toys. I give them small responsibilities like carrying their bags or helping to set the table or making their bed, just the way I did it when my daughter was little. I went to college for three years in my native country Colombia; Psychology was my Major chosen but I never graduated because I had the opportunity to come to this country before I finish with school. I continued here in USA and took some courses in Framingham State University some of those were Child Development and Child Psychology. I understand so much about children but not only from my experience as a Nanny for so many years but because I love to read a lot about children. I have the gift of genuinely caring for children and love them unconditionally providing the positive discipline needed.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Nubia! She joined us about a year ago to look after my four year old - I had had years and years of bad luck with nannies and Nubia was our dream come true! The only reason why she will now not be working with us any longer is because my in-laws have come to live with us - otherwise, we would certainly have kept her on for at least another year and perhaps even beyond. Nubia is never, ever late, always arrives in a good mood, never cancels. But the most important benefit is what Nubia has accomplished with our daughter. As an only child, our daughter really needs a good emphasis on social skills and Nubia did a beautiful and consistent job in ensuring that she engaged effectively with other children. The difference in our daughter within a year is quite remarkable. I would endorse Nubia for any family and very very happy to speak with anyone who is considering hiring her.
