Introduction

Hello!
I’m Valentina, charismatic, full of energy, patient, empathic, responsible, with 15 years delivering educational assistance to babies, toddlers and kids between 4 months and 10 years old. I have experiences with children with slow development too.

I am currently an English teacher and educator at a Japanese nursery school in Harajuku, Tokyo. (It’s a 保育園 and 幼稚園, from O years old to 6 years old).
I also organise Yoga and Ayurveda kids events around Tokyo ( 1 years old to 5 years old).

Vaccinated 3 times.

My childcare service is officially registered at the Setagaya city office.

I worked as a child educator, nanny, babysitter and Italian language tutor in Spain, Uk, Switzerland and Italy.

I had the opportunity to visit and spend time with children in a school for street children in New Delhi India and in a school in a favelas in Rio de Janeiro Brazil, where I enriched my mind.

I also lived in Australia, Brazil, France, India and I traveled in a lot of Asian countries. I understand the way of living of different cultures, I could babysitting kids without knowing the language and it was a success.

I work with passion and love, I take care for the uniqueness of each child, I gently enter their world through play in order to create a bond right away. My goal is make them happy an I am constantly aware about their feelings and emotions.
I like to play with them and I don’t use Tv and cartoon as tools when I’m working.

I take care of children with creative games, storytelling, songs, dance, and homemade clay. ^ ^
I can bring my own materials for the English lessons.
I love to bring them to the park and run with them from the first minute!
I am also fun of Montessori games and activities.
I teach Yoga for babies.
I’m a great cooker and I can provide healthy meal to the kids.
Of course I can make pizza and crêpes with the them : )

Talking a bit more about me I born and raised up in Milan, Italy. I’m in Tokyo since 1 year and half with my Japanese husband.

I speak fluently English, French, Spanish, I understand Portuguese, my mother tongue is Italian and I’m learning Japanese.

I’m also Ayurveda practitioner and I studied Ayurveda and Yoga in India.

I volunteered as a cook at a meditation school nearby San Francisco, California.

I’m looking forward to working for you and getting to know your child and helping them succeed in their education!

Ciao a tutti!
Sono Valentina, una persona, solare, piena di energia, paziente, empatica, responsabile e con molti anni di esperienza con i bambini da 4 mesi a 10 anni.
In questo momento lavoro in un asilo nido ad Harajuku a Tokyo come insegnante d’inglese ed educatrice per l’infanzia. In realtà è un asilo nido ed asilo uniti insieme con bambini da 0 a 5 anni.
Ho esperienza, sempre tramite l’asilo, con bambini con lento sviluppo di apprendimento.
Ho lavorato come assistente per l'infanzia, tata, babysitter e tutor di lingua italiana in Spagna, Regno Unito, Svizzera ed Italia.
Ho anche vissuto in Australia, Brasile, Francia, India e viaggiato in molti paesi asiatici. Comprendo “il modo di vivere” di molte culture, ho potuto fare da babysitter a bambini senza conoscere la lingua ed è stato un successo. Mi piace giocare con loro e non uso TV e cartoni animati quando lavoro. Parlo correntemente inglese, francese, spagnolo, capisco il portoghese, la mia lingua madre è appunto l'italiano e sto imparando il giapponese. Mi prendo cura dei bambini con giochi creativi, fiabe, canzoni e balletti. Cucino bene e sano.
Possiedo il visto sposa di cittadino giapponese. Non vedo l'ora di avere l'opportunità di prendermi cura dei tuoi figli! Grazie

We had a good time with Valentina. My son was so excited playing with her.
She knows a lot how to play with child. My son did lego, origami and more.
We already look forward to seeing her again:)

Valentina is taking care of our 1.5 year old daughter weekly and even though it isn’t always easy since she has a huge separation anxiety, Valentina always comes up with creative ideas to distract and entertain her while comforting her.
She is energetic and very dynamic, it is definitely funny for kids to be around her!
Her French proficiency is remarkable and could not recommend Valentina enough.

It was my first time hiring a sitter for my 3-month old and I was very very nervous. My son is very attached to me and does not let anyone put him to sleep except his mum. He is also a contact napper which means he will not let us lay him down for a nap.

Valentina not only managed to put him down, she tried many different strategies until she found the one that worked (which is the same thing I do but I had forgotten to tell her: bounce up and down, cover his face). This reassured me and is no doubt a testimony of her experience working in a nursery.

My conditions were not ideal. I asked her to watch my son by holding him in the baby carrier and walking around the city for an hour while I took a meeting around the corner.
Not only did she oblige without complaint, it turns out my son didn’t let her sit down so she was on her feet for the majority of the hour and a bit, lulling him to sleep. He slept almost the entire time and I came back to a baby drooling on her.

Valentina arrived 15 minutes early and immediately started to engage with my son. She spoke fluent Spanish, great English and I know she speaks a plethora of other languages.

Her carefinder picture does not do justice to her soft and gentle features. She was very warm with my son and even though it was brief, I felt very reassured and would hire her again.

ケアファインダーを利用して約3ヶ月、先ずは色々な方にと来て頂きましたが、ヴァレンティーナさんにお願いをして心から良かったと感動しています。気持ちの良い挨拶、自己紹介も自らして下さったのが印象的でした。親切丁寧、お仕事ぶりも大変プロフェッショナルで、2人の子ども達をお願いしましたが、年齢やそれぞれの好きな事をよく見て下さってとても有意義な時間になりました。子ども達も次の時間が待ちきれないと言っています。日本語も習得していらっしゃるのでこちらとの意思疎通もスムーズで大変助かりました。これからも長くお付き合いをさせて頂きたいと思う素敵な先生です。

はじめましての自己紹介など丁寧にして下さり、お人柄が感じられて安心してシッターをお願い出来ました。イヤイヤ反抗期の子供にも根気強く優しく声掛けをして下さったり、色んな教材で興味関心を引き付けて英語を浴びることが出来、終わる頃には子供もちょこちょこ単語が出る様になりました。ありがとうございました!

We really like Valentina and we highly recommend her. She immediately knew how to interact with our little son and daughter, on a play base but following our routine. She is wonderful, energetic, very proactive in proposing help, taking initiative with new activities and games, trustful, flexible, very kind, respectful and fun. Thank you very much Valentina, we are happy to have you with us :)

この度、連日でお願いしましたが、初日の子供の様子や遊び方を見て、翌日に更に遊びを発展させたり、声かけに工夫をしてくださる姿が印象的でした。最初は緊張気味だった子供もすぐに打ち解け、とても充実した時間を過ごさせてもらう事ができました。あっという間でした。
子供は別れ際にまた一緒に遊んでもらいたい!と話しており、すてきな時間だったんだなぁ。。。と感じました。全てがValentina先生のお人柄だと思います。また機会があればお願いしたいと思います。

Valentina is the best!! She loves playing with my daughter and is attentive, active, and cheerful. Valentina always gives me thorough explanations of what they did while I was gone, which means a lot to me. My daughter always has a good time with Valentina and I am always confident that the two of them are safe and happy together.

とっても子供が好きそうだったのと、家でズボンに着替えてからのシッティングでとても好印象でした。

息子もほぼ人見知りすることなく、楽しんでました。
2歳のほぼ英語は理解してない息子でしたが楽しそうだったなと、おうちで英語教育何をすればいいかなど教えてもらって親も勉強になりました。
