Hi, my name is Semira. I grew up with a mother who is a Child Development Professor and was exposed to teaching and guidance techniques when I visited her lab school. I am currently a Child Development major at San Diego City College learning more about the best practices for supporting the development of the whole child. I am just completing my first year as a full time nanny for 2 children, who just turned 2 and 5. I have over 3 years of babysitting experience and numerous young cousins that enjoy spending time with me. I understand the value of children’s play to their social, emotional, and cognitive development. I provide a wide range of choices for your children’s play and exploration, including toys, games, fun books, songs, and creative activities. I use positive guidance techniques and encourage children to pay attention to their feelings and communicate them. I work to help children solve their problems in a positive, constructive way. Children are drawn to me because of my positive, playful energy. I am healthy, strong, and able to keep up with even the most active child. I am able to enforce limits and inspire cooperation to keep children safe. I look forward to meeting your family!
