Experienced Babysitter - Loves Children Of All Ages

Responds within 4 hours
Being the eldest child in my family with a sister and three brothers, my childcare experience started right at home early in my life. When I would be away from them even a couple of days, I would miss them too much. Then I knew myself how much I enjoyed being with them. I started teaching kids right after I graduated my high school. Five years of teaching kids in a school even seemed too short for me. I never felt the pressure nor had a bad day with the kids. I am also the mother of two girls, one is 7 and the other is 3. Raising them became always joyful. The feedback I am getting every day from any daughters teacher keep me happy. They appreciate the way my bigger daughter behaves, talks to people, or studies. I feel proud that I have been able to shape her behavior in the best way possible. As a mom, I have learned more about children's need at the moment and also their need for further development. I have been working as a nanny for the last 9 years with both infants and toddlers. I talk to them and keep repeating until I feel they have learned what I said. Children are "copy cats". They copy your actions, the way you talk, and the words you speak. Got to be careful! I keep differently colored toys for them to play with, alphabets and numbers put up on the walls for them to see and recognize and play some music rhymes to cheer them up. I also encourages some level of outdoor activities which will strengthen child's body. I also give emphasis on "do" and "don't" and "yes" and "no" to teach them right from wrong. I will be extremely happy to share my experience with many other kids. I am also responsible for supervising children's safety, school work, nutrition, and recreation, as well as meal preparation and housekeeping including laundry, dishes, and cleaning. I am a great cook and I have my own car. Lastly, I hope to hear back from you, Thank you so much!

Energetic Responsible And Trustworthy Nanny And Babysitter

Hi my name is Lisa. I have Montessori training for ages 3-6 (primary). I also have a Master's degree in Educational Psychology and have taken coursework in Special Education. I have worked as a personal babysitter and in a childcare setting and as a camp counselor. I have 5 years of experience caring for children of all ages. I love to get down on the floor with kids and play games and act silly. I believe in being consistent with children and following a structured schedule because in my experience children thrive on having a routine. I am committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment for the children in my care. I take safety extremely seriously, and am trained and certified in child and infant first-aid and CPR. I am very organized am good at multitasking. If you want someone who will create a positive, happy environment for children, one in which they feel loved and cared for contact me. I look forward to meeting you.

Lisa saved us during Covid quarantine!! She watched our 3 and 5 year old and was not only a sitter, but an amazing teacher. She has a lot of knowledge of child development and used her Montessori background to teach our kids a lot of new material. They absolutely loved her. She kept them so engaged with activities, they stood at the window waiting for her to come every morning. She accepted feedback really well and was a very hard worker-- took her position with our family very seriously. It was hard to send them back to school!
