My name is Athena, I am 27 years old and I am Greek/Brazilian. I am happy to say that my love for children derives from my family, as I grew up with four siblings. I have a BSc in Psychology where I obtained an academic foundation on human development and later I was trained on cognitive behavioral therapy. I have volunteered as a group leader at a summer camp where I had the chance to promote the importance of connecting with nature through outdoor games and hikes. My professional experience in childcare began as an aupair in England during my gap year and it evolved in the following years in Greece.
Since then, I have taken on a range of ages, from newborn twins and toddlers to teenagers. I trust in building a substantial relationship with all members of the family and adapting to the needs of each child. I am keen on making every day interesting with activities such as, painting, arts & crafts, educational games, and exploring creative ways to study for school and enjoy learning. My priorities are to keep children safe, promote self-esteem and encourage them to pursue their interests. Finally, I commit to having a good time!
