I have babysat children since I was 12 years old but professionally since I was 16 years old. I cannot wait to have kids of my own one day! I support all the arts, athletics, and I love animals as much as I love kids! One day, I would love to open my own neighborhood Daycare. My favorite thing to do with kids is read to them, play with them outside or play indoor activities such as puzzles. I am animated and interactive with children and also organized and clean. I promise your kids will be in wonderful and loving care. Thank you for considering me and have a wonderful day! :)

Alison did an excellent job serving as our 16-month old twin girls' nanny. She did everything we asked and more. Caring for twins is difficult and intense and Alison was 110% committed to following our recommended schedule and developing our girls' motor and cognitive skills. Alison would always arrive on time (or early) and she would always stay late whenever we asked. Each day not only did Alison do our girls laundry and clean up in the nursery, but without our asking she also did our laundry, which we found incredibly helpful. We trusted Alison to take our girls in a stroller down a steep hill to our neighborhood park and library a few times per week. Alison also transported and shepherded our girls through dance class a few times per week, which is hard when you are only one person chasing twins around a studio trying to help them follow directions. Our girls liked Alison very much and we would recommend hiring her if you are looking for a nanny/babysitter. Charlie and T.

Hello all! I have been working with/watching children for many years as a babysitter, nanny, and mother's helper. I also have several years' experience working for an after-school program in Boston, providing childcare, social and emotional support, recreational and educational activities. I am energetic, fun and silly, but also know there is a time and place for everything, and can be sweet but firm with limits and behavior. I love working with kids, their inquisitive personas and endless energy. I have also enjoyed cooking meals and housekeeping for families I have served. Over the years, every family I have served, every child I have watched, changed my life. For those opportunities, I am truly grateful.

We hired Hannah to help take care of our then 2.5 year old. She helped us out for over a year and a half until we moved cross-country. She was absolutely amazing at taking care of our daughter, and has become like family to us. Hannah would come with her daughter to work as the girls were approximately 6 months apart. It felt like she was running a preschool out of our house. She took the time to do arts and crafts, sing songs, teach them new things, and simply play make believe with them. I would walk into a house filled with laughter, music, and giggling girls often dressed in costume. Our daughter also has a chronic medical condition, and Hannah was very sensitive to her needs. She juggled two girls of virtually the same age but different needs seamlessly. Anyone who hires Hannah would be so lucky to have her. We make a point of trying to see her and her family every time we are back because it's just joyful being in her presence.

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!

I was a nanny for a wonderful family in Bristow several years ago. It was one of the most memorable and rewarding experiences of my life! I spent the first year with a terrific baby girl, an active toddler, and three school age children. I witnessed so many milestones! I've also worked as an Early Preschool Teacher. Some of my skills include: preparing meals, homework help, potty-training, and making fun arts and crafts. Story time and creative play preparation are my favorite activities! I also enjoy outdoor ventures (nature trails, parks, playgrounds, etc.) and have an excellent driving record. Even on rainy days, having different things the kids and I can still do is key. My love for nurturing children is so strong, that I'm pursuing my Bachelor's degree online in Elementary Education, with over 75 college credits! Please feel free to contact me, I look forward to hearing from you! India

India was a Nanny to our 1.5 year old. She does a wonderful job patiently providing boundaries all while creating learning opportunities in a very fun environment. She is also a cautious driver and would take our daughter to new play grounds to explore. She also assisted with light house work such as laundry and emptying the dish washer. Our daughter loved her very much and learned so much from her in their time together. My husband and I were so impressed with the development milestones she accomplished due to India's previous experience as a preschool teacher. India is patient and kind and we enjoyed having her in our home.

I love and connect well with children of all ages. I have been a teacher since graduating from college, and have taught from preschool up to high school, community college, university and beyond. As a preschool teacher, I particularly enjoy young children, and I will be opening my own preschool in the fall of 2017. I am reliable and responsible as well as fun and playful. I am certified in CPR (for infants & adults) and am happy to accommodate any special needs or wishes. I am able to meet your child in who they are and what they want to do. I am also open to more long-term/nanny positions. I look forward to being of service, thank you for reaching out.

Abigail took care of our twin 16 month old girls for several weeks while we were in Taos and I was working. She was so truly beyond anyone I had hoped to find. I felt so fortunate to gave found her. One of my girls was going through separation anxiety and Abbie handled it so well, putting her at ease. She had such a calm, gentle, fun manner with them, always singing to them. They warmed to her instantly and had such a wonderful time with her, swimming, dancing, reading, doing art projects. She went above and beyond, taking them to music classes. Her music and education background make her very qualified to provide a high quality experience for little ones. She also helped us as a family as we got ready to leave town, offering to run errands-again, above and beyond. Highly recommend Abigail!
