I take care of newborns up to 12 years in age. I started babysitting at the age of 12 and I am 58 now. Many years of experience. My mom was a newborn nursery nurse and taught me very well. I love being around children. I teach children what they will need in kindergarten, play games with them, have story time and take time to go to the zoo and library. The children I have taken care of enjoy coming to my home. I have a huge playground and there is no danger of strangers. I have just started watching children overnight to give parents a night out worry free. We have set field trips in the summer for every Friday. We make the summer a fun and happy adventure! Thank you for taking time to read this.

Carol truly has been the answer to our prayers. She is kind, generous and thoughtful. Carol always has an energetic positive upbeat attitude. My girls love going to her house after school, and tell me they can't wait till school is out so they can be at Carol's all day during the summer. Carol gives them fresh fruit for snacks, and plans meals with wholesome real foods. They play outside almost everyday, and she has charts to help them work on a certain goal each week. She keeps the kids engaged and busy, with little to no screen time. I highly recommend Carol for childcare, and we will be her clients till my children no longer need supervised care.

Available for Full Time hours ASAP!! Hi parents! Taking care of children is my absolute passion. I am 24 years old and have been babysitting since I was 13. I have experience with children ages 7 months to 11 years of age. I've babysit for many types of children including high functioning autism and children with developmental delays. I enjoy teaching and having kids engage in different activities to promote emotional, social, and intellectual growth. I am CPR and first aid certified and have a Nursing Assistant certification (CNA). I Am very detail oriented ( I often have parents tell me " I was just about to tell you if you could..." or "how did you know I wanted you to do that"). I am very trusted by kids and parents and will make sure your child is safe and has the best care ever! please let me know if I can help your family and make your life a little easier for your family!

I wish I could give Tina 10 stars! Tina has been taking care of my son for about 2 years since he was 14 months old. We are so incredibly thankful and fortunate that we have found Tina - she is the best nanny one can ask for; always punctual (in fact, she is always early), reliable, caring, loving, and flexible. I am probably not the easiest mom to work with but Tina has accommodated everything I have asked and more. She is amazing with kids and keeps my son entertained all day. She cooks for my son everyday from scratch and thanks for her, my son is healthy and happy! My son LOVES Tina and even after she stops working with us, she will always be a part of our family!

I have a masters degree in Psychoanalysis, and am currently pursuing license in psychotherapy. My undergraduate degree was in Human Services. I have just returned from 2 years abroad living in Dublin, Ireland. While there, I worked as a social care worker with profoundly intellectually disabled adults. I am a multifaceted person that enjoys a variety of activities. In my free time, I conduct a local writing group and volunteer at a local food pantry. Because I am a writer, I am a lover of books! I am very comfortable with pets, if you have any. I personally have two cats named Eeyore and Mulder. I have a clean driving record, and I have insurance, but I do not own a car. Upon request, I can provide letters of recommendation from my previous employers. I have been trained to give medications via SAM'S training, and have a wide understanding of behaviour and nonverbal communication. I am of course CPR certified, and have Heimlich Maneuver Training/Certification.

Samantha is such an intuitive caregiver. My son is particularly shy and had some developmental milestones that were delayed. He rarely takes to people very quickly, but with Samantha, he was so comfortable! No crying when I left the house, or when my husband and I would go for date nights. With Samantha, he really blossomed. With our son in her capable hands, we felt comfortable enough to finally go out on New Year's Eve, and stay out for most of the night! Anytime we needed Sam, she was there for us in a heartbeat. I couldn't recommend her enough! Even though we don't like to share such a great babysitter with you all ha ha!!!

Hi, I'm James! I am originally from Fargo, ND but have lived in Orlando for two years now. When I was 11 years old I became "babysitter certified" as well as certified in CPR and first aid, and I have been babysitting ever since. I have cared for children ranging in age from newborn to 14 years old. I have taken care of up to 6 children at a time of varying ages and I have always felt comfortable with the energy and effort it takes to take care of all of them. Kids tend to love me as well, and on multiple occasions I have heard from parents that their kids beg to have me back. While in Florida, I did the Disney College Program and worked at Animal Kingdom for 9 months, moved to a charter school for kids with special needs as an assistant teacher for 6 months and YMCA Learning Center for 12 months, and now work at an ABA behavior therapy center as a Registered Behavior Technician full time. I also maintain a current CPR/First Aid certification. I can't wait to meet you and your kids!

James was amazing with my two kids. two year old daughter and 6 year old son. he hired him as we where visiting Orlando and needed a sitter for a event we needed to attend. he came to our hotel room and watched kids in room. by the time we returned at 11pm both kids were fast asleep after having a blast with him! definitely would recommend and hire again when in town.
