Trusting your child with someone is delicate. I know, because I raised one daughter and heard concerns from many parents, while running my own Preschool for Toddlers. I grew up in Switzerland, and graduated from the best Preschool Teachers School in Geneva. Also my training was for kids from birth to 6 yrs, I have experiences till age 11. I enjoy interacting with children through puppets, stories, making arts & crafts, building things, while respecting their preferences. I sing and read to babies, encourage their effort for independence and mobility. I look at facial expressions & body language for cues to what a child needs. I am endowed with a nurturing & patient temperament, I work with integrity, and a sense of cleanliness & organization. I am looking for quality time with your child(ren), avoiding too much TV & computer games. I am a vegetarian, aware of the benefit of healthy organic food, and enjoy cooking. I also love to care for any animals, and also plants & garden.

We were so lucky to find Pranava! She is amazing with our 1 year old son - she has a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw from and our son loves spending time with her. She is reliable, passionate, and dedicated to her profession. Pranava is child centered and really takes the time to be present with our son with creative activities and engaging play. She is observant and thoughtful in how she approaches what our child needs and has provided us with enormous support as new first-time parents. We feel grateful to have been working with her!

I am a formerly licensed child care provider from Minnesota. I have worked in the childcare industry for the last nine years and considered myself to be a professional, experienced, self-motivated, organized, patient, calm and dependable with high energy and an adventurous individual. I have found taking care of children to be a worthwhile experience. I love children of all ages, and I have the expertise to provide them with the loving and nurturing attention they deserve. I have experience planning and implementing activities that are both fun and educational. I do believe in a structured environment with scheduled activities including arts and crafts, pretend play and outdoor time based on the child's age. Some of my hobbies include hiking, fishing, canoeing, camping, biking, gardening, playing board games, arts, and crafts, cooking, organizing and cleaning. I have references available and would love to talk more to see if we could be a great fit.

Claudia is professional, kind, patient, organized, flexible, dependable, and creative. She took care of our 3.5 year old and our 18 month old, and they absolutely loved her. She always planned seasonal activities for the children that were both fun and educational. She never missed an opportunity to teach them something new. In addition, she was great with birthdays and holidays, and always had special surprises for the family. She was diligent in keeping notes of their milestones, activities, meals, naps, etc. and was very thorough in communicating with us each day when we got home. If either child needed special attention regarding a certain milestone, she was quick to incorporate activities to foster growth. And what always impressed me was the preparations and planning she did outside of her scheduled hours. She clearly prioritized our children's health, safety, and wellbeing. She's the best and made our home a better place and we love her for it!
