Love Kids And Like To Have Fun

Hi! I am a fun, outgoing, patient and creative person and have been babysitting since I was 13 years old. I used to work as an ABA technician with kids with autism so I am comfortable and know how to care for kids who may have special needs. I am currently a student at Grand Valley State University studying psychology. I have 7 nieces and nephews and have had plenty of experience with infants and middle schoolers. I love to do crafts, play games and sports. I am also willing to help out with some light housekeeping if needed. I love working with kids because I get to see how they grow as a person and I can be there as support during their development.

Reviewed by Ashley A. 5/5 stars
Hannah was an amazing caregiver for our 20-month-old daughter, A, for an extended period this summer. The circumstances weren't easy - A is also a COVID baby who hasn't interacted with strangers or even been in a shop or grocery store. Hannah was A's first babysitter and the first person aside from my husband and I to take her off on adventures to the playground, beach, etc. Hannah is patient and caring. I loved and appreciated the way she spoke with A - the positive reinforcement, patience, and understanding. My husband and I joke that we learned a lot from watching Hannah interact with our daughter - but it's true that we did. It's clear that Hannah is able to connect with children quickly and earn their trust within a short period of time. Even after a week since we left town (honestly the only reason that we would let Hannah out of our grasp!), A asks for Hannah and often shows off new skills she learned while in her care. I'd recommend Hannah in a heartbeat.
