My name is Aya!! I am Japanese and Italian and I was born and raised in NYC.
I have 6 years of babysitting experience!!! I was also a full time babysitter last year in NYC. I can care for children of any age from newborns to toddlers to pre teens!
I also have experience caring for autistic children as well!
I am both bilingual in English and Japanese! So I am happy to speak both languages to the children!

I have been babysitting for 5 years! And have babysit for a wide variety of ages as well as many families!
I worked full time for a year with a family that had two children (girl 6 years old, and boy 10 years old), including picking up from school, taking the children on day trips as well as putting the children to sleep and feeding them meals.
I also have experience with infants, from 1-2 year olds, including changing diapers, feeding infants as well as taking them outside!
I also have experience with teaching English at a preschool in Tokyo, which included creating fun daily activities and curriculum for the children to do!
Our boys (2 & 5) had a great few nights being looked after by Aya - She was friendly and happy to play whatever the boys were interested in and they felt very comfortable with her right from the get go. We were able to go out and enjoy Tokyo at night and felt confident the boys would be fine with Aya - she sent text updates to let us know how things were going which gave us peace of mind. I highly recommend Aya:)
Aya was good with our 1 yo son. He immediately warmed up to her.
Aya did a pretty good job with the boys. They are usually pretty easy but they were tired and jet lagged, so a little challenging. She handled them well, and was caring, prompt and considerate.
Aya was very timely and responsive and was awesome with our kids, ages 6 and 9. She met us at our hotel and watched them there while we went to eat lunch. We would absolutely use her again.
Aya was awesome! She was very calm and mature. Our 13-month year old son warmed up to her right away, he didn't even cry when we left. Communication was very good; she did a good job keeping us informed on how things were going.
My girls (3 and 6) had a lot of fun with Miss Aya.
She accompanied up to the clinic where she watched our baby for us while the girls got shots. Because she is fluent in Japanese, she was able to communicate with the staff on her own to figure out whatever we needed. Big help.
Thanks Aya and see you again soon!
Aya is so natural and kind babysitter. My daughters had fun ! Thank you so much.
Aya is a wonderful babysitter. My son very much enjoyed his time with her. We would definitely work with her again!
Aya looked after our three children ages 6, 3 and 11 months on a Sat night. All of our children quickly warmed to her, and what was surprising was our 11 month old daughter who usually cries when she sees strangers scrawled straight to Aya and lifted her arms wanting to be carried. Aya is a natural with kids, kind and friendly. We have a multinational multiracial family and she felt like a niece who was here to watch our kids. Highly recommend her as a sitter.
She took care of my two boys (9&7) for a couple days during my business trip. First of all, she was on time, she was honest about all the expenses - foods, admission charges, transportation etc. Most importantly, boys LOVEed her. They are still talking about her after we return to California. She was warm, caring, and good understanding in school aged boys needs. Next time we go back to Tokyo, I will ask her again to take care of my boys. Thank you Aya-san for all the good memories for all of us. Sanae
Aya was warm, punctual, and professional. And very patient!
Aya is great! She is a natural with our kids (ages 3 and 1), incredibly patient and easy going. She is always on time, reliable and very responsive to communication. I highly recommend!
Aya is a well experienced babysitter/nanny and has taken care of a wide range of children in New York City! With her experience also working at a preschool in Tokyo, she is used to creating fun daily activities for children that can come in handy during babysitting as well :)
