My name is Maria, I am half Argentinian and half Spanish. I been living in Australia for the last 3 years as my partner is from here. I am happy and grateful of living in this beautiful country as it is full of lovely people and great opportunities.
Back home, I went to uni and studied communications, advertising and photography. When I was in uni I started my career as a nanny and when I moved to Australia, apart from being a nanny, I worked for a Photography Kids Studio where I had to managed children of all ages.
After years of working with kids I decided I want to become a teacher. So, I am studying to become a teacher in Montessori School alternative education.
Since I moved to Australia I been working as a babysitter for different families. I enjoy becoming part of a family and building relationships with children of all ages.I am very conscious that children learn their behaviours and thought patterns from the adult role models in their lives and so I take special care to nurture their growth in a way that will encourage communication, self respect and love.
I am gentle when necessary, firm when necessary and give special attention to explain things in a way they can understand.
I enjoy interactive play and also encourage them to create their own ways of entertaining themselves. And of course, lots of cuddles tickles and love!!
I am more than happy to help you with the cooking. I love cooking and I am really into health and nutrition. I will do my best to make the kids eat as much veggies as possible and to avoid sugar or processed food. We can work different ideas together and even get handy healthy recipes books.
I can also help you with the washing and to keep the children areas tidy and clean.
I try to keep the kids away from the screens ( if the family wants, of course). I donīt think screens are 100% bad but I do think the kid should have a balance of different activities.
I love going to parks, museums, pools, zoos or where ever they are in contact with nature. When we are at home, it would be good to have a good kit of art&craft, puzzles, board games and books. After doing all that kind of fun activities a nice movie or a educative game in the Ipad can be a good reward.
Being around kids and helping to nurture their growth everyday is what makes me happy. I want to open their minds, connect them with nature and give them all my love.
What do I love about being a babysitter/nanny/au pair?
Child-education is the most important problem of humanity. All the errors we commit during his/her first years leads to moral illness for the rest of their life. I want to make a change. I want to make children live fully according to their psychic and SPIRITUAL needs. And that is what i love, the possibility to contribute to our next generation.
