  About Me
 
Dear Family,

I would like to introduce myself to you. My name is Maria. I have been taking care of children since I was a young girl. I am now 43 years young. I took care of my younger brother and cousins while we were growing up, as our parents worked. I had my only son at 16 years of age. He is now 26 years old and if I may say, a great man, whom I am very proud of.

I started babysitting for parents in our neighborhood at the age of 12, on the weekends and after school. I have continued doing so, off and on since then. I enjoy spending time with children. I love seeing children learn and teaching them to discover new things about the world around them and themselves. I have experience with new born children to teenagers. I am capable of preparing easy, healthy meals for children. I do very light cleaning, such as loading and unloading the dishwasher, washing pots and pans & wiping kitchen counters, mostly pertaining to the children at meal time. I specialize in being a nanny, not a housekeeper or cook. I will only do child related tidying and meals.

If your family requires a nanny, I charge $22 per hour with a 4 hour minimum. If your family requires an occassional babysitter, I charge $20 per hour with a 4 hour minimum. I have great references to provide you with.

I think I would be an asset to your family because I am a fun loving, caring person. I am efficient, organized, able to multi task and prioritize. I am patient and understanding. I like to teach, play games, go to playgrounds, the zoo, the science centre, Heritage and Calaway Park and love going to the movies. I also like bike riding, camping, walking & hiking. I love to have fun and keep the kids entertained. I have a lot of life and work experience under my hat. I believe I am what you are looking for. I would love to meet you and your family.

Sincerely,

Maria
