While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.

                                       About Me

My name is Janet, I’m a Swedish woman living in Costa Rica for the past 12 years. I studied teaching and childhood education in Sweden and I previously worked at a Preschool in the Tamarindo area. I have many years of experience as a babysitter and I have babysat for a wide range of families and ages.

As a preschool teacher, I gained experience in being able to watch many kids at a time as well as being able to help children play and get along together.  What I enjoy about babysitting is really having a special relationship with the kids. I love to watch them being creative and learning new things - and I love being part of it.

I'm reliable, flexible, hardworking and I have a positive attitude. I'm very calm and patient  and I'm more than happy to provide additional fun activities for the children; arts, crafts, games etc. I have no problem taking the kids to the beach or to the pool.

Happiness is...
laughing with a child about something entirely nonsensical
The soul is healed by being with children. 
― Fyodor Dostoyevsky
