Babysitter, Mother's Helper And Elder Companion

Avg response < 9 hrs
I am an aspiring elementary school teacher and current daycare teacher who is passionate about helping children grow and learn. I have experience caring for my own family's children, for other families from Care. com, and from my three years of experience in day cares. I have experience cooking, entertaining, bathing, and caring for pets as well! I like to have as much fun as I can while making a connection with children. I am currently in college enrolled in the Education in the Early Years program. I work with children daily and I am trained in everything necessary for caring for children. I am CPR certified, First Aid certified, Water and Fire Safety certified and I have all three clearances needed to work with children in a professional setting(child abuse clearance, background check, and criminal background check). I love children and working with them! I am flexible and I am excited to work.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Alison. I met Alison this past fall when my youngest started day care in her class. Alison's attentive, gentle and encouraging nature made the transition into day care so easy for our family. Alison really takes the time to get to know your children and makes them feel safe and special. We've also had Alison babysit for our two children (5 and 2 y/o) on date nights. She is punctual, reliable, trustworthy and the kids can't wait for us to leave when she arrives! Alison is great about texting updates throughout the night and provides a peace of mind that is invaluable. Some people are just made to care for children and Alison is one of them! I highly recommend Alison!

Professional And Fun-loving Babysitter Or Nanny!

Avg response < 3 hrs
Hi! I am a fun loving, caring, conscientious, and communicative babysitter with over 5 years of professional experience - 2 of those years, I lived with a wonderful family in New York as their full-time nanny. I have worked with families of all shapes and sizes, including families with newborns to 15-year-olds, special needs, families with all sorts of pets (dogs, cats, reptiles, birds, and fish!). I love being able to help parents with their childcare needs while being able to bond with kids. Some of my favorite activities to do with the wonderful children I look after is to bake together, do arts and crafts activities, have a movie night, read bedtime stories, play together, learn together, and explore the world. Above all, I will ensure that everyone is safe, happy, and healthy.

We love Dominique and have hired her on multiple occasions for long-term (1 week to 1 month) childcare, pet care, house sitting and driving my car/transporting my child. She is dependable, communicative, and completely trustworthy. We think of her as family at this point and never have a worry when we know she is caring for my child, pets or house. My child thinks of her as a big sister as she is a positive role model, actively engages in activities, yet sets appropriate boundaries for respect. 100% recommend and will hire Dominique again!
