Experienced, Fun Loving Baby Sitter Seeking Great Family

Hello, My Name is Cria and I have been a babysitter since I was 11 years old. I have Experience with infants and small children and I actually don't mind changing diapers as strange as that sounds. With older children I like to get down on their level and be their friend but I am always mindful of rules that need to be enforced. I have taken care of multiple children in my church nursery with no problem. I would love to babysit for any parents that need help no matter how large or small their family may be. My main goal as a babysitter is to do everything in my power to help the family I work for, whether that be by helping with their children, preparing meals or doing the laundry. I see myself as a creative, fun loving, trustworthy and family oriented person and I love to tell stories, play games and make crafts. I think that kids feel right at home with me and that is why I find great joy in this field.

Cria has been a delight to work with! She took care of my son for 10 months, from the time he was 4 months old, to 14 months old. Cria is attentive, passionate, kind. She is truly a gentle spirit and a joy to be around. I never had any concerns for the safety of my child when he was left in her care. Cria was always receptive and open to feedback and constructive criticism. It was truly a blessing to be able to return to work and know that my son was in good hands. Whenever she had any questions, she would not hesitate to ask and we always keep the communication lines open. Towards the end of our time together, Cria took initiative with lesson plans and taking an active role in decision making. Cria had no problems assisting us with our transition to daycare. She adjusted his nap times and helped ease him into using a sippy cup for all feeds. I really can't say enough! We are sad that our time with her has come to an end, and we would definitely hire Cria again in the future!
