If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
In my experiences with childcare, my greatest learning has been with Scarlet, she is a very intelligent girl who I have cared for since she was 3.5 years old. She spent a lot of time with me, we went to the same school, took her to medical appointments, changed her clothes, prepared her food, took care of her at her home since her parents worked all day. There was a time when she was sick with her little eyes, she had a type of seasonal allergy that lasted about seven months, in all that time I was able to take care of her, she also has an allergy to penicillins, and derivatives, which made me know well what to do every time she had a health problem and had to take her to the doctor, like when she had fallen at school and we had to take her to the emergency room so they could give her stitches on her little head. I took her to her swimming, ballet and gymnastics classes.
I helped with his homework, reading and writing, and getting ready for sleep.

If you have any other areas of knowledge or skills, please describe them below:
Some of my skills is to write stories and teach children to do it. I like to help them exploit their creative side. I like to read and dance. I have used texture therapy with the baby I take care of, the routine of how to start going to the bathroom alone, and since she is one year old I'm teaching her the sound of vowels, numbers and colors.
Something I love to make is food, compotes, or baby jellies.
A few months ago I studied Health and Social Security, which has led me to know how to identify dangers inside and outside the home, for the same reason that I teach children where the dangers are, how to avoid them, and what to do if they are in some difficult situation.

Please describe your hobbies
I really like to read and write; I have written 5 novels which I hope in some future to be able to publish. I like the movies, watching movie series marathons on rainy days, I love the rain, my mom has taught me gardening. I like the beach, to know tourist places and other provinces of my country.
I don't usually go to parties, I really like order and tranquility. I always live organizing everything, my mother always says that I'm the person with the most desire to have everything in order that she has ever known, order makes me feel at peace.
You can only send a massage to Cristal Estrella if you are interested in this applicant (see above).
