College-aged Student Seeking Night And Weekend Sitting Jobs

Responds within a few hours
I am currently looking for occasional babysitting [i. e. date-night] positions; my available hours are evenings after 4:00 p.m. or weekends. See my calendar for my regular availability for occasional babysitting positions. Do you need a Mary Poppins? Then I am your girl! I am pursuing my Secondary Education degree in 5th -12th grade, with a specialization in English and literature. I have 3+ years of experience with children, ages 3 and up. In previous summers, I have worked as both a nanny and camp counselor working with children ages 3-6. I absolutely enjoy outside activities or games, as well as creative games like drawing or charades. Activities that I engage children with include outdoor games, board games, and age-appropriate crafts. Additionally, child safety while creating fun is a priority for me when working with children. Also, I am adaptable and reliable in my services. I have reliable transportation; I can provide light housekeeping or pet care if required.

We have a really strange schedule and just needed Emily for a very late-notice sitter job. Emily saved the day. She was amazing! She was prompt, communicative, and responsive. I was working in the next room, and I could hear just how engaging, thoughtful, playful, and caring she was. Our six-year old was so sad when she had to go; she had so much fun, and that her favorite part was all the puppet play. We would hire her again in a heartbeat! Thank you Emily!

Active Childcare is founded on the principle that physical activity and free-play are the critical processes through which children learn. These processes, in conjunction with traditional classroom teaching, are the most effective way to develop the long-term critical thinking and social skills necessary for school and life beyond.

The environment at Active Childcare is a child's dream. We have a five-level climbing structure, a huge inflatables area, huge open indoor fields, as well as the traditional outdoor playgrounds. These areas afford the children year-round opportunities to run, play, compete, cooperate, and develop the foundation for the social and emotional skills needed in life.

Our classroom environment complements our learning environment. Each classroom has nine areas where children have opportunities to explore and learn on their own and/or with guidance from the teachers: science & sensory, art, literacy, music, computer, dramatic play, manipulatives, and blocks. Free-play in these areas is interspersed with traditional learning techniques to optimize the cognitive learning environment for your child.

At Active Childcare, we are focused on developing the social, emotional, and cognitive skills of your child. It is the combination of these skills that prepares them for school and lays the foundation for life ahead. So much research has been conducted recently connecting the positive educational benefits of physical activity, and we are excited to be on the forefront of implementing these strategies into an educational environment. Active Childcare is a place like no other, where your child can run, play, learn, and develop all year long!


Provide a unique learning environment to empower our students to achieve their social, emotional, intellectual, and physical potential.


Deliver a positive educational experience that builds self-confidence, engenders mutual respect, develops social skills, nurtures intelligence, and builds life skills.
