Jillayne was great! My husband and I were in Des Moines for a wedding and needed someone to watch our 2 month old. She responded right away, was punctual and great with our son. It was the first time we had left him with someone other than our parents and it couldn't have gone more smoothly.

Without My Children My House Would Be Clean, My Wallet Would Be Full, And My Heart Would Be Empty

Responds within a few days
I have 8 years of experience. I can help with Travel and Errands. Recently, I've been busy helping raise my nieces, so I'm looking for a way to earn a little extra money while doing the thing I love. I'm confident, energetic, and fun. I do believe kids will be kids, but it's up to me and any other adults to be role models and teach them to respect others, be kind, and make them overall good kids. My passion is watching and helping children grow into amazing human beings and going on to do great things! I am currently in Iowa until I start at ASU, in Spring 2022. I'm wanting to have something ready for myself when I make the move! I'm not fluent in Spanish but I've been working on it- I'm Panamanian, so it's something that I'll always be interested in! I've also had the opportunity to work with 3 autistic children for 1 of my many nanny families, & they are some of the greatest kids I've ever known!! I've also been Vaccinated.

She is attentive to our needs, easy to get along with, follows instructions well, responds promptly to any requests we have, sends updates while we are gone, and we always come home to a house that is in better condition than we left it. We truly appreciate Janiya and highly recommend her!
