I owned & managed a preschool in the US
While I was in the US, I operated a small language school for Japanese children for 16 years. We ran the school like a preschool, and also had a parent - baby class, and Nihongo classes for older children. Over 200 children enrolled over the years, and I still maintain great relationships with them and their families!
I love children, they teach me so much! I studied early childhood education in the US, but I learned more by just spending time at my school, talking and playing with my students. I see each child's potential, and can help them grow.
My babysitting carrier started when I relocated in Fukuoka in early 2021.
I lived in Seattle area for the last 25 years, so I'm pretty fluent - I was an involved parent, have lots of experience in classroom volunteering, etc. I am confident I can provide you with reliable babysitting service. Please contact me for more details!
