Hi families! My name is Paula from Salamanca, Spain( which means I can help your children with their Spanish homework). I've been working with children since I graduated from high school and was always the "go-to" baby sitter for many families in my area before that. My experience includes babysitting and au pair for families in Spain, New Zealand, Portugal, the United States and Canada.My expertise lies in caring for newborns from 0 months👶 old to children up to 8 years old👧, having worked extensively in this age range in my previous roles. I'm very friendly and bubbly and love getting to know new people and have never had a problem with having children warm up to me quickly! I am also comfortable watching every episode of Bluey (my favorite!), PJ MASK or Paw Patrol (for the 100th time) I'm very honest and trust-worthy. - So, why pick me? Well, first off, I've practically got a PhD in forts, bedtime negotiations, and snack-time diplomacy. - What makes me the Mary Poppins you didn't know you needed? I've lived in more countries than I can count, so I come with a suitcase full of cultural insights and a knack for adapting to any kiddo's quirks. Flexibility? It's my middle name (not really, but it should be). - Do you want to know something else about myself? Now, here's the plot twist: I used to be a hotshot journalist and did the whole marketing agency thing for years. But guess what? My true calling is hanging out with kiddos! Who would've thought? I figured out that my heart belongs to the playground, not the boardroom. I'm not your average sit-on-the-sidelines nanny. Nope, I bring a journalistic flair to the mix. Interviews about favorite toys, breaking news on cookie thefts—it's all part of the gig. Plus, I've got the creativity to turn a rainy day into a full-blown indoor treasure hunt. In a nutshell, I'm not your run-of-the-mill nanny; I'm the Mary Poppins with many stories saved in my pocket, a sense of humor, and a knack for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. Can't wait to chat more and bring some serious fun to your kiddos' lives. Let's make childcare an adventure! Cheers, Paula :) Ps: - Valid First AID and CPR certificate - YMCA BC's Responsible Adult Course in Child Development, Child Guidance, and Nutrition - Solid local references - Spanish Teacher certificate - Newborns, toddlers experience - Valid work permit - Dog lover ;)

Hey there!👋 Not only am I an exceptional nanny, but I've also got a side gig as a sewing aficionado🧵. The pandemic turned me into a cross-stitch and embroidery enthusiast – my newfound zen. While I'm usually the go-to for cozy movie days under a blanket on Vancouver's rainy afternoons, I'm also the adventurous type. You'll find me chasing snow up at Cypress, exploring thrift stores for hidden gems, and immersing myself in the world of ceramics. Let's chat about education—I hold a journalism degree with masters in event organization and social media. A bit unexpected, right? Despite my letters-centric background, my love for kids took the spotlight, especially after discovering it through my travels. Speaking of travel, I'm an incurably curious soul, always eager to learn and discover new things and places. Traveling has been my greatest teacher, introducing me to incredible locations and people that I carry with me forever🌍. So, if you're looking for a nanny who can stitch up a storm, add a sprinkle of creativity, and bring an insatiable curiosity to your child's world, you've found her!🌈 Ps: - Valid First AID and CPR certificate - YMCA BC's Responsible Adult Course in Child Development, Child Guidance, and Nutrition - Solid local references - Spanish Teacher certificate - Newborns, toddlers experience - Valid work permit - Dog lover ;) Cheers, Paula
