Child Care

Avg response < 22 hrs
Hi there! My name is Alyssa and I have been caring for families off of Care for more than 12 years. I have a master's degree, in addition to early childhood education, elementary school and special education teaching experience. My childcare background includes caring for multiples, newborns, medical and special needs children - including, but not limited to, type 2 diabetes, ADD, ADHD, autism, and pervasive developmental disorder. I'm also a big animal lover and stay very active. I believe in spending time outside of the house and always provide picture updates for parents. Downtime includes reading, music, arts and crafts and of course a good movie every now and then. My work hours are flexible - I also do overnights. Shoot me a message if you need references or if you have any questions!

Alyssa is an amazing person, sitter and friend. She watched my son E in her home for a year, full-time, while I went to work, from when he was about 10 months to almost two years old. She always had fun and interactive activities planned for the day while keeping to a schedule that allowed E to play and learn at the same time, while still having a routine. E loved being with her and was always happy when I picked him up after work. She goes above and beyond for the kids and parents in the way she cares then I could have ever imagined. I never had to worry about my baby when he was with her. She is a sweet, caring and patient person (not just with the kids but with the parents as well). She was like E's second mom and we were extremely grateful to have her in our lives. I would definitely recommend Alyssa to care for your child, I promise you'll love her as much as we do!!
