My name is Fran and I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In my free time I like doing pottery, running, practicing yoga and before moving to Tokyo I played football with my girlfriends and used to have a lot of fun with my dog.
For 10 years I´ve been working as a photographer for fashion and advertising while having my own experimental projects. At my work, I got to meet people of all ages, including young children and babies, teenagers and adults.
Recently I moved to Tokyo and understood that I wanted a change. My goal is to work in a warmer environment than the one I am used to. Tokyo life offered me a new perspective, I´m surprised by how children are taken care of, how so much revolves around them. I´d really like to be a part of that and to have the experience of taking care and helping them have a good daily life.
Hola, mi nombre es Fran y soy de Buenos Aires, Argentina. En mi tiempo libre me gusta hacer cerámica, salir correr, y antes de mudarme a Tokyo, jugar al football y divertirme con mi perro.
En mi país natal trabajé como fotógrafa profesional por aproximadamente 10 años en moda y publicidad y paralelamente manteniendo mis propios proyectos fotográficos personales.
En estos años pude trabajar con gente de todas las edades incluyendo niños, bebés y adultos. Recientemente me mudé a Tokyo y entendí que necesitaba un cambio en mi vida.
Mi objetivo hoy en día es poder trabajar en un ambiente cálido y más real del que estoy acostumbrada. La vida en Tokyo me dio una perspectiva nueva acerca de la familia y del lugar que ocupan los niños en ella, cuánto gira alrededor de ellos, cómo se los cuida. Quisiera ser una parte de ese proceso y colaborar a que tengan una buena infancia.
I have a big family and I happen to be the oldest of 15 cousins. On occasions, I´ve babysat them. I also have a younger sister, 14 years younger than me with whom I have a good relationship since she was born!

Fran was fantastic with my 6-year old. This wasn't an easy task because I was on a business trip and only had a hotel room with limited space and material. She took great care of my daughter, played all sorts of games with her, took her to the zoo. My daughter loved it!
Fran was wonderful with our kids! I would definitely want her to babysit again if we need it when we’re next in Tokyo. They really enjoyed their tome with her. Thank you Fran!
Fran immediately connected with our kids. She handled our 1 year old son better than I can. Our daughter couldn't stop talking about all the fun she had with Fran the next day. Will definitely use Fran again.
We are very satisfied, Fran was very careful with our daughter and we feel so confident with her. Our daughter looked very happy with her. Thank you very much! We definitly recommend Fran!
Fran was the first babysit for our 16 month old son and she did a great job. He immediately felt comfortable with her and she even got him to sleep in time. Fran is very nice, patient and friendly and we will definitely see her more often to take care of our son. Thank you Fran, hasta pronto!
Fran was fantastic. Thanks very much
Fran was great with my 11 month old son. He doesn’t do well with strangers but quickly warmed up to Fran. We will definitely be hiring her again!
Fran helped her so much !! I couldn’t have done it here in Japan without her. She is very good, brilliant and a thruthful girl. You can trust her as well. My kids love her. We’ll miss her a lot.
Fran is simply amazing, an absolute natural, and is almost like family to us - our two boys, 5 and 7, love being with her. She is lots of fun, very creative, and always finds new ways to keep the boys engaged and happy. Our older son one evening said "Mom and dad, can I tell you something? A nanny should enjoy what the children enjoy and so far our nannies did not seem to have fun when we did - but Fran is different, she enjoys everything we enjoy"
Fran is a great babysitter. She is calm and attentive, and all three of my kids had a good time with her.
Fran is a very sweet and nice girl, I would like to have her as our babysitter in the future!
We were visiting from Seattle, WA. We have a 5yo and 3yo. Both of them LOVED playing with Fran. She is so warm our children instantly felt at ease with her. I asked what my son's favorite part of our trip was... he said "the pink fish and Fran"
Fran is great with kids, she gets really creative and does her best to entertain them for the one hour workout where we need her help.
She can manage several young kids at a time!
Fran has a nice friendly demeanour and was a great fit for our family and our kids. They loved her. We look forward to having her sit for us in the future.
Fran came to us for some afternoon park time and evening babysitting. She was calm with my energetic boys and handled them plus my baby girl very well. My children took to her immediately. With me she was polite and attentive.
Fran is very easy to fit in our kids and she can wait until they can feel comfortable to be together.
She asked about more information about my son to level up his English and tried to find what is the best for him. It would probably be more accurate to say that she is more like being a guardian than a friend for kids.
I really liked how Fran seemed to observe my daughter's personality and adapt, rather than imposing her own style. I also appreciated that she asked about my daughter in advance so she could come prepared.
Fran is such a sweetheart. Immediately interacting with my 6 year old son 2 year old daughter. While she told my son where she lived in the past with a map and photos, she also taught my daughter how to move her body to music. Very creative and caring.
Fran is extremely quick at communicating about a job and kindly sent me an update during a job. I could tell from her first message that she is kind and thoughtful. That was confirmed when my son and I met her today. She braved the heat and met us at a playground so that I could go to an appointment. Fran was there before we were and made an immediate good impression with her gentle and kind demeanor. My two year old son immediately acted like he was comfortable around her. He really must have felt that way because when I got back he was sleeping.
Fran comes from a big family and has a great relationship with them. Moving to a new city recently, she looks forward to developing great bonds with families in Tokyo! Not only she can look after your children, but she is a professional photographer and can incorporate art into the time she will be spending with your children!
