Hello, my name is Alexandra and I am a 30-year-old college graduate who recently returned from working in Europe as an outdoor travel guide, where I led family cycling trips throughout France. On our week-long journeys, we would explore France by bicycle and do exciting activities for the kids like fencing lessons and chocolate making!
I am originally from California, where I began watching children from a young age first, as a mother’s helper and then, as a nanny and tutor (in the US and France). I have over 14 years experience working with children both in the home and classroom setting. I have cared for children from as young as 7 weeks old and I feel very comfortable and prepared watching infants and multiple children at once.
In the past, the families I worked for wanted a nanny who was very active with their children and planned fun activities and games. From creating imaginary plays, going on a hike, or attending toddler music classes, I truly hope for the opportunity to once again work with kids now that I am living in New Zealand.
