Hello! My name is Estela I´m from Spain but nowadays living in Milan to study my last year of psychology. I started living on my own at 18 so it wasn't such a big change to come here alone (actually not fully as I brought my dog). I enjoy going hiking and riding bike with her but also playing the guitar, chess, singing, reading and of course travelling and discovering new cultures. At the moment I´m learning Italian, being fluent in English and of course native Spanish. Regarding my experience with children, I started occasional babysitting with 16. At the same age I volunteered on a NGO for children with special needs and economical problems. We organised activities for them such as cooking, crafts, games, trips... The next year I was an au pair for the first time and as soon as I turned 18 I became a leader of the scouts where I was part of since I was 12. 

I don´t only enjoy playing with children them (which of course is great), I like to understand, what their needs are and what is best for them. Not only attending their basic care. It´s so beautiful when a child shows you the colourful world they have inside their head. There is where you realize you actually did a good job.

Hello, my name is Amy I am from the U.K. I recently moved here to Milan, previous to my move to Italy, I have had several years of experience within childcare, beginning at the young age of 16, with my own new-born siblings. During both separate births, my mother experienced severe complications which in turn resulted in hospitalisation and thus my new-born siblings required supervising and raising. Although only 16, I took on this responsibility and cared for my younger siblings and I believe this has rapidly increased my maturity. I then began offering and receiving requests for my babysitting to family, friends and acquaintances, which I continued to do for several years. I studied law, despite my previous 7 years of studying: music, drama and arts…to develop into Family and Child law, especially social services, child negligence and legal guardianship during divorce. During the last year of my studies chose to help within hospital settings on the cancer and children’s wards. I had the opportunity to interact with the children, reading stories, playing with the games and toys available, and even changing diapers and burping the new-born babies. Upon moving to Italy, I have also substituted some classes of children varying from 5 months- 3 years-old.
