Hello. I'm Mikayla. and I am a freshman at Virginia tech but I'm originally from New Paltz NY. I have babysat for local families and at my church for many years now. I absolutely love spending time with kids of all ages and from all different backgrounds. I have experience with ages ranging from newborns to middle schoolers and have babysat up to 3 kids at a time. I am super creative and enjoy doing anything artistic but I also enjoy doing physical activity like playing sports or dancing. I am also willing to help with homework or any special care your child may need. I am super patient, caring, fun to be around, organized, dependable and always focused on the safety of your child\children. I am flexible to accommodate your schedule and hopefully I get to work with your kids in the future. Have a great day!

Mikayla sat for our 2.5 month old at the venue where my sister's wedding took place. We wanted to be able to be near the baby but have someone in charge of watching her so we could enjoy ourselves at the party. Mikayla arrived right on time, prepared with white noise downloaded on her phone and having practiced swaddling at home. She watched our daughter during the ceremony and the entire 3.5 hour party. Every time we checked on them our daughter was doing great! Mikayla was incredibly attentive, calm and thoughtful about providing great care to our daughter and piece of mind to the wedding party during some hectic pre-wedding activities. Thank you for allowing us to have a wonderful time at the wedding and taking such good care of our baby!
