My hobbies are reading books and gardening, I also volunteer at a cat shelter in Tokyo and absolute adores cats and dogs. My current address is in Chiba but I will be in staying in Setagaya, Tokyo for the next couple of months for work so please don't mind the transportation distance.
I have over a year looking after my nephew from 8 months old to now being a 2 years old toddler. Our activities usually consists of drawing or doodling together, sometimes I would take him when I'm doing gardening work and teach him about different colors of the flowers and names of vegetables, I also enjoy going on a walk with him, and teaching him alphabets, numbers and words. I am open to also doing online lessons for toddlers and kids.
My passion is cooking and basically just create amazing stuff in the kitchen. I am an experienced cook with professional kitchen background.

I have a babysitting experience through taking care of my nephew from he was an 8 month old baby to now a very energetic 2 years old toddler. I live with their family so I do see him everyday. I helped taking care of with feeding him lunch and dinner, watching him when his parents are busy, changing his diapers, changing his clothes and doing activities with him like writing and teaching him his alphabets. I like drawing and painting to pass my time, My nephew sometimes join me when I do it, I give him his own canvas and just let his creativity do the rest. I also do gardening as a hobby so when I'm watching him sometimes I would go tend to the garden, I teach him the different colors of the flowers, different names of herbs and vegetables.
Taking care of toddlers also comes with handling tantrums and I can say that I handle his tantrums well by remaining calm and understanding why he is upset at the same time explaining to him the situation or if it's something he wants but can't have. I always keep in mind that kids are their own person that has feelings and emotions even though they can't communicate it very well, it is my responsibility as an adult to guide and understand them.

She is so kind. My daughters had a wonderful time!
Nika was very friendly and engaged my 11-year old son in English conversation for a full hour. My son says he trusts her for any future care.
Nika-san was very kind. My boys enjoyed spending time with her very much. We would like to come again. Thank you.
Nika came on very short notice to watch my daughter. She was friendly and professional. We'll definitely will have her come back to sit for us in the future.
