About me

I have a great passion and love for working with children. I love making crafts with recycled material such as plastic bags, card boxes toilet paper, etc. I have been working as a nanny and babysitterss for more than 8 years. I enjoy going to parks, playground and playgroups but I also like to stay at home playing and doing arts and crafts.

I have experience babysitting twins from eighteen months to three years old and even 4 month old twin babies for the summer. 


References for Maria Laura

I have 2 children and Maria Laura has been looking after them for over a year. She is wonderful! She plans activities beforehand so by the time she gets home it's just a matter of them doing what it's on the agenda. She loves doing art related activities and gets the children very engaged. You can count on her to keep them active and busy. She is also capable in the kitchen and is really lovely. Maria Laura is very reflective on how the kids are doing, what triggered them throughout the day and is aware about the children development. She is calm, competent and truly cares about children in an appropriate way.

Laura looked after my 16 month old daughter and it has been very good the couple of occasion I've used her. She was great, quickly engaged with my daughter by doing a variety of activities. My daughter was comfortable with Laura, which was great. She is calm, very easy going, matured and nice lady. I would definitely recommend her as a babysitter.
