Hello there! My name is Ana. I am 29 years old from Colorado, USA. I first came to Florence as an au pair (four years ago) for an Italian family. If you want to know some history about Florence, I can share many secrets with you! I've been to all the museums way more than once (Uffizi 14 times!) and I've taken countless walking tours.
Since arriving here, I have been working with children in various ways. I’ve been with International Babysitters for almost 4 years! In the summer months, I am an English tutor/ camp counselor for Italian children who want to learn English in a fun and engaging way. We do science experiments, water games, make small skits to perform for parents, and much more. The kids learn a lot and it is so much fun! On top of that, I am also certified as an online English teacher for Chinese children. So, you could say I love working with kids!
I have a real natural ability to connect with them and make them feel understood, but most importantly have fun and be safe. I have 15 years of experience with kids of all ages and cultural backgrounds; including newborns and toddlers. Since I have a very flexible work schedule, I am comfortable staying overnight and/or travelling to other cities /countries. I always find a way to fit in naturally whilst allowing the family to connect and bond when together. Trust me, your children will love me! I cook, I clean, I see what needs to be done and I do it. I look forward to meeting you and your family!

Hello, my name is Florencia, I am 20 years old and I was born in Mexico. However, I lived in United States for a year at a boarding school when I was 13, and now I have been living in Florence for 2 years already since I am doing my Bachelor Degree in Interior Design and I think these experiences helped me so much to be independent and mature. Spanish is my mother tongue but I also speak English and Italian. I started taking care of my little cousins which I adore but my real experience started when I was 15 and used to be a tennis teacher for children between 4-10 years old. After that, I took care of kids around my neighborhood and at the age of 17 I started working on a program called "Prints" in where we used to teach girls how to cook, do handcrafts and dance. I truly enjoy to spend time with children because they get so creative and happy with whatever is on their hands or around them. I am a very open and responsible person who like outdoor activities as much as indoor activities.
Ciao! My name is Honorata, I'm from Poland. I really like taking care of children and I have a great friendship with them. In my past, I've always managed to keep children interested and make them happy. I can diversify the care of children with dance classes with surprising stories, for example: magic forest, time travel or other mysterious ideas which I know kids love to do! Because this is what I do in my daily life. I have worked as a contemporary/ musical dance instructor for over 10 years in Poland. Together with your kids we can do dancing, acting, reading, games, snacks and meal time, imagination building and other fun activities. I come from a family where almost everyone works as a teacher for kids. My mother runs a private kindergarten in Poland, my aunts are teachers in schools. This is our passion. I am very cheerful and positive person and a hard worker. I love to share my passion with others. I speak fluent Polish, English and in a communicative way in Italian (I'm studying to be better all the time).

Hello. My name is Anna and I am originally from Austria. For me it has always been a great enrichment to accompany children and to explore new things with them in a playful and safe way. For this reason, I completed the school as a kindergarten teacher and in the recent years I have been able to gain various experiences with kids of all age groups. Amongst other things I worked in different hotel kindergartens. There I was responsible for the organization of excursions and creation of the weekly program and to make days unforgettable. Bright children's eyes through motivation and the offer of various games, sporting events, creative work, scientific experiments, baking creations, musical units or simply an emphatic conversation are the most beautiful things in the world.
My mother tongue is German and in addition, I am fluent in English. Furthermore i will now refresh my knowledge of Italian from school by taking a language course.
