My name is Yury Alvarez, I am Costa Rican, originally from Tamarindo, Guanacaste, I am a mother of a baby boy named Bastien, and graduated from Universidad Latina de Costa Rica as an accountant, obtaining my bachelor degree.
Me and my son we both are surfers, water and nature lovers, loving, caring who loves traveling and adventures, music, arts, meet new people and experience new cultures.
I have worked as a nanny in many different capacities all around Costa Rica and internationally. I decided to start my own company for childcare services called Sunshine Babysitting Costa Rica, a registered company with over 10 years of experience.
I have a background in business and have many years working with families all around Costa Rica. I understand the stresses that can come with a strict timetable.
Regardless of any stressful situation that may arise, I have learned to embody the laid back and kind attitude of Costa Rica. I know how to diffuse any situation quickly and with a bit of fun! Through my experience working with children I have learned a lot about the importance and impact we as adults have on them, the importance of just having fun and being free, how kids are learning 100% of the time and how special our intereactions can truly be with them through play and comversations.
My passion is working with kids. being a part of their growth inspires me to continuously enable and expand their curiosity, to laugh, have fun and to simply create a positive space for them to be their authentic selves.
I am "Zafarrancho" certified, The course is composed of four modules:
Personal safety and social responsibilities,
Fire prevention and fight,
