Child Care

Hello my name is Maria, I'm fun and outgoing I love kids. I have baby sitting experience with newborns up to the age of 7 years old. I Enjoy being around children, I am caring, patient, and have a lot of energy. I Can help change diapers, as well with story time, craft time, light cleaning up after children, and I am someone who likes to take charge. I enjoy seeing kids express their emotions, feelings and seeing how creative they get with things around the house. I enjoy seeing how they get super creative when they paint. I enjoy going on walks and going to the park. I live being around kids and seeing their creativity come to life.

We loved having Maria as our babysitter and thought she was going to be with us for the long haul. Unfortunately she became sick and wasn't able to give me adequate notice. So I was in a scramble to find a temporary replacement because we wanted her back after she got better. Communicated off and on with her to check and see how she was doing. Also to see if she wanted to come back once she was better. She confirmed that sounded like a good plan if her health was better. Now I'm a month away from having her return and she hasn't answered my texts or phone calls. So I have had to let her go as a babysitter. I need someone who is 100% reliable with communicating. I understand life throws curve balls, but I still need communication and reliability. I can't wait until the last minute to find someone to watch my children. I would only rehire her if I believed I wouldn't run into these communication problems.

Sweet And Caring Sitter!

I could also guarantee your little ones will be in a safe and fun environment (I love arts and crafts I'm sure they will too!).

Jennifer was great! She came at the exact time, to the minute, we booked her. She immediately started interacting with and holding the kids. She had my clingy baby laughing immediately and both kids distracted fully so I was able to get ready to go out. My 3.5 y/o loved her. By some magic power she had BOTH kids asleep by around 8:30. And they were still asleep when we got home hours later. She even took the time to read the notes I filled out when care.com had me answer dozens of questions, and I know this because she used a note for the rewards chart "you get a star" for our oldest to get in bed, and he woke up in the morning excited that he was going to get a star because Jenny said he'd earn one. (He was also really sad in the morning that she was gone so that was a good sign to us that he had a fun night). She even contact napped with our baby until we got home, which we didn't even ask her to do, which is amazing! Most just try to put him down. Baby loves contact napping and we loved that she held and cuddled him. She's truly so sweet, and so amazing with kids and babies. We would - (and have) - hire her again
