Experienced Babysitter And Stay At Home Mom — Lakewood, WA
Previous to having children, I was in the childcare field for over 16 years. I have experience watching children in large groups and one on one. I am a very involved sitter. I enjoy arts and crafts, games, singing and many other activities. My two children, 4 and 2, love meeting other children and are great in social situations. I can watch them here or at your house depending on your schedule. I have a large backyard and enjoy taking the kids on outings. I love getting to know the unique personality traits of each child. I can also provide date night services on most nights without my children coming. I would love to meet your little ones!

Babysitter — Lakewood, WA
My experience: I have 4 younger siblings, and have helped care for them from a young age. -I've been changing diapers since the age of 7, when my sister was born. I have provided childcare for individuals, as well as for groups such as MOPS (mothers of preschoolers). I've cared for children from infant to preteen, and am comfortable with all ages. Activities: I like reading to kids, doing crafts, drawing, building forts, playing board games, imaginative games (though my imagination is not quite as good as the little one's), playing outside... pretty much anything the children like doing. I try to do more interactive things, rather than movies/TV/video games etc. I am more than willing to go on nearby outings to the park, library, etc. or go on walks. Comfort & discipline: Many times I have sat and held an unhappy child for a time, then encouraged them to play, or read a book, etc. When a child is disobedient, I speak with a quiet, firm voice of correction, and when needed, use timeouts, and loss of privileges, or toys taken away for a time. The only temper-tantrums I remember dealing with were by preschool children; in which case, I informed them that was not okay, placed them in timeout (on my lap, if need be) and then followed that up with talking about their behavior, and how they would deal with their emotions, or a given situation next time. Cooking/Meals. I am totally comfortable preparing meals for children. I do appreciate when the parent has a meal planned already, so that I don't have to figure out what to make, though I have done that as well. Bedtime/Bathing. I have given baths, and done bedtime routines, and am comfortable with both. Challenges/Rewards of babysitting: The most challenging part of being a babysitter is when the children do not obey or respond to correction. This is to be expected sometimes, of course, but it is nevertheless challenging, and forces me to prayerfully come up with other strategies to handle disobedience. As to the most rewarding part, I would say that is to love a child and be loved in return. I do enjoy caring for children, and hope to have my own someday. Emergency/CPR: I do not have CPR certification, but am willing to/desire to get it. I have references available upon request.

Babysitter/Nanny — Tacoma, WA
I've been taking care of children ever since I turned 16 years old with my neighbors kids and then our family friends and acquaintances. I have also had the pleasure to be an Au pair for one year in Switzerland and babysat two kids ages 12 and 15, while also living at their house. I do have a car if I need to drop your child off somewhere or when you need me to come over. I don't mind dropping your children off to school or picking them up.

College Graduate Willing To Nanny/Babysit — lakewood, WA
I have been working with kids ever since I was about 15 or 16 years old. I watch kids from my mom's work, at my church and even kids in my neighborhood. I love kids and I plan on becoming a clinical psychologist as a career. I am not currently CPR certified but I would be willing to take the classes if needed. I cook, clean and have reliable transportation. I have a very diverse background working with children. I have worked in a daycare with the infants all the way up to the school aged kids. I recently was a nanny for a family over the summer and loved it. I have also worked at a teen homeless shelter as a case manager. I am willing to stay with a family for awhile but no more than two years because I am determined to go to grad school soon. I cook and clean and also have reliable transportation with a clean driving record. I like to be active and do educational activities.

Part-time Babysitter Available — Lakewood, WA
Although I have never had professional babysitting experience, I have cared for children for my family and for family friends as well. The ages of the kids I cared for ranged from 9 months to 6 years old. I have also worked as an Activities Assistant for a memory care community for residents with different levels of care. My time working there has taught me wonders on how to care for people as well as build trust and relationships with not only those I am caring for but with their families as well.

Hi! I'm Mikaila. I recently moved from Colorado where I worked as a nanny and EMT. I have been a nanny for several years and for many different families. Most of my experience is with babies and toddlers all the way to about 7 years old although I do have experience with older children. I have worked in many different areas of child care and being a nanny is my favorite out of all of them. I love being able to be close with the child and family. I love teaching new things to children and watching them learn and grow everyday. My style is to not sit in front of the TV all day. I prefer to read, play outside, go on walk, and get creative with games and crafts. I have two dogs of my own so I am comfortable around pets.
