Energetic, Caring, Experienced Babysitter — University City, MO
** From now-mid May, my availability is:Friday: 3pm-10 p.m. and Some Weekends. From mid-May to mid August, my availability is full time!** From 2014-2016, I babysat for a 7- and 12-year-old siblings from Monday-Friday. The four years before that, I babysat for a single-mother's adolescent, special-needs son. I really enjoyed being a part of both families as the babysitter. Prior to that, I babysat for a toddler for 2 years, and assisted in the creation of a childcare network for the Family Readiness Group of the 69th Infantry of the NY National Guard. I also have experience with tutoring children in grades K-8. I recently moved to St Louis to start graduate school in social work, so I sadly had to leave both families that I've come to care greatly about for the past 6 years. After settling in, I wanted to start looking for a new family to babysit for.

Caring, Engaging, Responsible Babysitter Available For Evening, Weekend, And Date Night Opportunities — Saint Louis, MO
Hi there! :) My name is Mary, and I am a 24-year-old St. Louis native seeking to establish a few steady relationships with local families for occasional, as-needed babysitting opportunities. In these babysitting prospects, I am seeking to expand both my work and personal experience by applying my "loves" of language and people in a practical manner--for example, by reading to your children, or by helping them with some of their language arts homework. I also love playing games with kids and seeing how their imaginations expand just by having fun. I believe in engaging kids' creativity in a variety of ways (especially beyond the gadgets world!)--for example, with story games, board games, outdoor games, coloring, and, frankly, anything we can dream up on the fly! I'm as comfortable playing princesses as I am super heroes, and I'm at ease around kids of all ages (I'm the oldest of six kids, so I'm extremely used to working with different creative styles). I have experience taking care of everyone from infants to teenagers, so I'm just as composed changing a diaper as I am bonding with a 7th grader about the pressures of middle school. I look forward to working with your family!

Part-Time Babysitter — Saint Louis, MO
I have raised 3 children of my own. I have also helped raise 2 grand children. One of which lives with me most of the time. I was a foster parent to 56 children over the course of 6 years. I quit the program because it was too hard giving up children I got close to. I am very pet friendly with 4 dogs, a 22-year-old cat (Lola), a hamster, 2 parakeets and 7 fish. Also, I am a non-smoker. I love children and they seem to love me back.

Full Time Babysitter/nanny --During Summer Months — Saint Louis, MO
I have always loved taking care of children, no matter the age! I am confident I am fully capable of being a great babysitter/nanny if given the chance! I have taken care of babies a few times before, and young children many times. I also frequently babysit for a couple of family friends I have. One couple I babysit for has twins that are about 7 years old, and I tend to babysit them quite often. Another couple I babysit for have three children, who are about 13, 11, and 10. Although I frequently babysit older children, I am fully capable of caring for small children and babies and have had experience babysitting babies before. The couples I babysit for have full trust in me to care for their children for many hours at a time, which is why they have me back frequently. I am mainly looking to babysit/nanny during the whole summer while I am at home from college! I come back May 10th, so anytime right after that I am available to start working!

Experienced Babysitter - Loves Children Of All Ages — Saint Louis, MO
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!

Part/Full-Time Nanny Or Babysitter — Saint Louis, MO
My experience in caring for children has ranged from working as a teacher assistant in a Montessori preschool for 5+ years, to part-time babysitting, and live-in nannying for weeks at a time. Caring for children is very rewarding for me. Investing my time and energy in children as they grow and develop is something I view as a privilege.

Babysitter,Caregiver And Cook — Saint Louis, MO

Beyond family, I care for children on Care. com with reviews available below. I enjoy taking the children on outings to the park, on hikes, to the Science Center, zoo, playgrounds, swimming, you name it! Creativity and imagination are two of my greatest qualities; constantly coming up with new ideas to keep the children occupied. I have experience with Autistic and Asperger's children. These kids hold a special place in my heart due to the fact that this spectrum runs in my family. I am familiar with and apply the techniques of ABA.

Experienced, Responsible Babysitter For Children Of All Ages — Saint Louis, MO
I have been looking after little ones for over six years. My experience in babysitting began in high school and over the years I have watched many children. I have cared for children of all ages, the youngest being 7 months and the oldest being 10 years. I have babysat both girls and boys, sibling pairs, a single child, and even multiple children at once. I am CPR certified and attend a refresher course every couple of years. My babysitting style is to engage children in active play. I never let them watch more than 30 minutes of television when I babysit, and usually that's only because I am preparing their meal during that time. I want the kids to have a fun learning experience from our time together. I often read to them, encourage them to build, get crafty, play dress up, etc. The parents I have babysat for in the past can provide better insight, I am more than happy to provide references. If you are looking for someone who is responsible, experienced, and fun, then I am your girl!
