Hello, Dear Parents! My name is Laima. I am honest and reliable 42-year-old babysitter looking for a suitable family to work for as a live-out babysitter/nanny. I have extensive experience as a babysitter/nanny and I have all the qualifications needed for the job. In my country (Lithuania), I received my Child Nurse degree. I had worked for a while in a child clinic. In 1998, after getting my green card, I came to the US. I worked here as a Social Worker, then I started to work as a babysitter in 1999. I took care of newborns, toddlers, also twins, boys and girls. I can provide references upon request. Recently I am working for a family and taking care of their 10-month-old boy since he was 3 months old, but they are moving to the far suburbs. Sadly, I have to look for new job. Before them, I was working for a nice professional doctors family and was taking care of a 4-year-old girl and 17-month-old boy. I have been working for them for 4 years. Thanks for your time! Sincerely, Laima

Laima was employed as our nanny for approximately 20 months. During that time she was responsible for caring for our son, R., and another boy as part of a nanny-share arrangement. Laima cared for R. between the ages of 5 months and 26 months. During this time, we have come to know Laima very well and we recommend her with the utmost enthusiasm. Laima is professional. She was never late and always kept her commitments. Laima excels at finding fun, educational things to do with kids (or creating activities at home and teaching valuable skills). Laima is highly attentive to child safety issues. We always felt comfortable that she took great care of R. whether at the park or home and was effective in communicating any issues. Laima has an excellent rapport with the boys; she clearly loves children.
