Hello! My name is María Fernanda, I'm from Chile and I am currently living in Osaka; I'm planning to stay here for at leasts 6-8 months.
I came to Japan to put my Japanese in practice and learn a bit more. Even though I studied Japanese in university I still need lots of practice every day, which I'm doing now.
I also studied English and Portuguese.
In my free time I love doing outdoor activities, such as hiking, going to the park, countryside or travelling; I also love cooking, watching films and meeting with friends.
I really like children; playing with them, learning from and with them and coming up with new fun ideas to share.
I consider myself an easygoing, reasonable and nice person.
I have worked as a babysitter for 4 years, with children from 2 to 6 years old and I think with hard work, patience, love and responsibility, children in my care would be in competent hands.
Some of the tasks I have done while babysitting are:
- meal preparation and cleaning involved
- help with homework
- crafts and arts projects
- audiovisual inputs
- bedtime stories
- bath time
- playing outside (park, etc)
I would say I am a dog lover, but I like cats also, so I'm fine with both.
I hope we spend a fun time together and I look forward to hearing from you!
Hola, mi nombre es María Fernanda, soy chilena, viviendo en Osaka por al menos unos 6 u 8 meses.
Vine a Japón a practicar el japonés, ya que aún necesito mucho estudio para mejorar. Soy traductora inglés-japonés y además hablo portugués.
Mis hobbies son hacer deporte, las actividades al aire libre, cocinar, ver películas y salir con amigos.
Me gustan mucho los niños, jugar con ellos, enseñarles y a la vez aprender de ellos.
Me considero una persona amistosa, amable, responsable y confiable.
Tengo experiencia trabajando como babysitter; lo cual he hecho durante 4 años. En Chile cuidé a 2 niños de entre 2 y 6 años. Pienso que con amor, paciencia y trabajo arduo, los niños que estén bajo mi cuidado estarán seguros y en las mejores manos.

-cocinar y limpiar lo relacionado con la cocina y juegos
- actividades manuales y artísticas
- ayuda con las tareas de la escuela

Me encantan los perros, pero no tengo problemas con los gatos, ya que me gustan ambos.

I worked as a baby sitter in Chile for 4 years.
From 2016- 2019 I took care of Matilda, who lived nearby and we were together from 5 to 10 pm twice a week. We cooked together, played, do some h.w and had bath and bed time stories. The most rewarding thing was seeing her running towards me to hug me when I arrived and her sad face when we say goodbye.
I also babysat Martin for one year. He's s 3 years old now. We did kind of the same as with Matilda, with the exception of homework and we enjoyed going to the park together.

Thank you for taking care of my son and dog today! It was good she understood Japanese he talked and responded in English. I would like to offer her again and I hope he won’t watch YouTube next time!
Maria Fernanda is amazing with our 2 year old. She has been with us for 6 months already for 1-2 times a week. She speaks Spanish to Luca, to develop his 2nd language skills and he is so excited when she arrives! She has become a dear friend to me as well and it's the most comforting feeling to have a person here you can totally trust with your child when you are working or going for an evening out.
Maria was great with our kids, they loved her the minute she walked in. We all loved Maria so much we used her twice on our Japan holiday, once in Kyoto and once in Osaka. She engaged with our kids but was firm enough with them too. I trusted her fully to bath the kids and get them to bed. Would definitely hire Maria again and recommend her to anyone.
Maria Fernanda was fantastic :)
Maria did a wonderful job minding our two children. If we were longer in Japan we would have definitely booked her again.
Perfect!I was dreamed to have somebody in Japan like her.Super understand child.My 9 years old daughter was feeling confident with her also my 2 year old boy.
That the first time my child stayed with a baby sitter.
I highly recomend her.Perfect portuguese,english!Thank you!
Maria Fernanda did a great job taking care of my 5 month old daughter. She followed my instructions to detail and was very caring. She was also nice to arrive early for me to explain how to take care of my baby. I strongly recommend her to other parents looking for a babysitter!
She is a very good and friendly baby-sitter. My daughter, who is timid, soon had become to like her and has been very glad to play with her. Her English is excellent. Thank you Maria!
Maria is a great sitter! She helped us navigate around Osaka and entertained my four year old daughter with art projects and imaginative play. We look forward to seeing her again!
She is very kind and has natural love for children.
Maria was very friendly and positive throughout her interview. She has a passion for working with children and is looking to help children enjoy many different type of activities. Maria will make a great sitter for any CareFinder family!
