Hello! My name is Catalina. I am from Chile. I can speak two languages English and Spanish. I am 29 years old.
I studied physiotherapy at university in Chile. In my internship I have experience with working with kids creating different games to improve their motor development and their social interaction. Also I have been living in NZ for 4 years and have been working in many jobs. Most recently, I have worked in Auckland hospital, before that I worked for one year and half as a program assistant for after school care. I also have experience working as a nanny.
I am an energetic and enthusiastic person, I really enjoy the different sports such as trekking, bicycle, running and yoga. I also enjoy cooking in my spare time. And I love animals.
I have taken a first aid course in Auckland city hospital and I have attained different courses such as communication with patients and different techniques to calm down patients for example. These techniques can also be used with the students from the after school program. In the after school program I took a child protection course for child safety.
I will be looking forward to work with the your children and play different games with them. I can also help to teach them other languages.

Catalina looked after my two daughters on our first date night in Tokyo. She was so lovely and patient with my daughters as well as friendly. We didn't get interrupted at all that night and she was great. Highly recommended!!!
Catalina was terrific! My four year old daughter was so excited to play with her. They did art and yoga and she was able to put her to bed on time. I highly recommend her as a babysitter!
she was great! nice and friendly but she left the baby sleeping without swaddling her despite our instructions to swaddle the baby.
Catalina was very warm, sweet and energetic. My daughter immediately started playing with her and got comfortable. She is very detailed, punctual and careful about things when taking care of her. Thank you for making her have a lovely time!
Catalina was on time for her interview and job. My 2 and 4 year old enjoyed her from the very start. She is very warm and energetic and I really liked her attention to detail.
Catalina seemed to be a very adaptable and capable nanny/mother’s helper. Our two daughter’s liked her instantly and she also cooked a quick and healthy meal for the family. She helped our family out for one evening and we look forward to hiring her again.
Catalina was very bright and cheerful, and her daughters were playing and getting along well.
As it has not been so long since I came to Japan, there may be parts that I am not accustomed to as a means of transportation or Japanese living culture, but I think that there will be no problem if I explain in advance.
Catalina was on time for her interview and had a great attitude throughout. She really enjoys working with children and is confident she will be able to keep them entertained. Catalina will make a great babysitter or tutor for any CareFinder family.
