Career Changer From Teacher To Art Therapist

Responds within a few days
Hi, my name is Bethany. I am a student at GW in the graduate art therapy program. I am looking for room & board in exchange for 10-15 hours of work per week, during the afternoons, evenings &/or Saturdays. Work can include childcare, eldercare, tutoring, organizing, cleaning, laundry, meal-planning, cooking, pet care or light yard work. I am flexible, calm, and hard-working. I currently live in northwest DC with a wonderful family, however, our schedules for the next school year are not lining up well. I will have classes this fall in Alexandria two days per week, and I will be an intern in Bethesda two days per week. I do not have a car and need to be able to access public transportation. I will be available at the beginning of August 2021.

Bethany has been an excellent caregiver for our very young children. She is incredibly knowledgeable about child development and has done a myriad of activities that are developmentally appropriate with them, including a lot of art and sensory activities. She is very creative and can turn anything into an activity. We have appreciated how organized and methodical she is. We have also appreciated how thoughtful and generous Bethany is. She is also very tidy and will go above and beyond to tidy and organize our spaces in ways that are very helpful. Above all else, Bethany has cared enormously for our children, taken excellent care of them and formed lasting and strong attachments with them - and what more could a parent ask for?

Child Care

Responds within a day
Hi there! My name is Alyssa and I have been caring for families off of Care for more than 12 years. I have a master's degree, in addition to early childhood education, elementary school and special education teaching experience. My childcare background includes caring for multiples, newborns, medical and special needs children - including, but not limited to, type 2 diabetes, ADD, ADHD, autism, and pervasive developmental disorder. I'm also a big animal lover and stay very active. I believe in spending time outside of the house and always provide picture updates for parents. Downtime includes reading, music, arts and crafts and of course a good movie every now and then. My work hours are flexible - I also do overnights. Shoot me a message if you need references or if you have any questions!

Alyssa is an amazing person, sitter and friend. She watched my son E in her home for a year, full-time, while I went to work, from when he was about 10 months to almost two years old. She always had fun and interactive activities planned for the day while keeping to a schedule that allowed E to play and learn at the same time, while still having a routine. E loved being with her and was always happy when I picked him up after work. She goes above and beyond for the kids and parents in the way she cares then I could have ever imagined. I never had to worry about my baby when he was with her. She is a sweet, caring and patient person (not just with the kids but with the parents as well). She was like E's second mom and we were extremely grateful to have her in our lives. I would definitely recommend Alyssa to care for your child, I promise you'll love her as much as we do!!

Lovable And Sweet

Responds within a day
Hi! My name is Aaliyah. I am a part time undergraduate student at UDC. I am very patient, adventurous, and reliable. I have been working with kids since I was 15. I first started by babysitting in my neighborhood then as I entered High school, I started working in the daycare. Over the past few years, I have primarily worked with infants and toddlers. I have also tutored early school aged children. When the weather is nice out, I love to take the kids out for walks to the playground or parks but, if not, I enjoy creating fun craft activities such as creating slime, baking and painting . I always incorporate a type of learning activity as well. When caring for infants, I do stimulating activities to make sure they are hitting each milestone. I have been vaccinated ( the standard vaccinations as well as both Covid vaccinations) I know we are living in very difficult times due to COVID-19. I am following all CDC protocols such as wearing a mask and social distancing.

Aaliyah has been such a blessing to our family! She's so great with my daughter, and took on her virtual school beautifully. My daughter gets so excited the night before Aaliyah comes over. She's a pleasure to be around and you can just tell she loves kids. She always keeps my daughter engaged with activities, games, and learning. Aaliyah practices safety during this pandemic also which was a really important factor for our family. We love her!!

Full Time Reliable Nanny/Caregiver

Well I'm a registered nurse by profession. So I have a knowledge in child care. Before I also take care of my little brothers and sisters, so with my nieces and nephews. After graduation in collage I have the chance to work as a caregiver/nanny. My responsibilities as a babysitter are bathing the baby, giving the formula, changing the clothes and making her/him comfortable. Marking the environment safe, cooperating with family. Observe the child developmental changes. Also report to the parent any on towards behavior of the baby. If the baby is sick assist the parents to determine signs and symptoms. Close observation of the baby is needed. Now that I'm in US I'm taking care of 2 kids, 7 months and 4 years old. My responsibility as a babysitter to the infant is bathing her, changing her diaper, feeding her and taking vital signs if needed. I also make her comfortable while sleeping. Make sure that she is safe. While the 4-year-old toddler, I prepare her food in school, prepare light food, assist in bathing and changing clothes. Grooming, also once in a while play with her, also check her activities in school. See to it that she have the necessary things in school.

I was initially very nervous about hiring a babysitter for our newborn, but my husband and I are very happy to have hired Mimi! She is always on time (or a few minutes early), very reliable, and is really good with our baby boy. Never missed a feeding and always makes sure our baby gets his naps and play times. We can't describe how much easier our daily routines are with Mimi around. My husband and I both work from home, so we sometimes see how Mimi interacts with our baby, and we can tell she genuinely loves kids. We wouldn't hesitate to hire her again in the future!
