Meet Penny

I am infant/CPR and 1st aid certified, and well versed in childcare. I began babysitting at age 11 for a 1-month-old, and continued through school and worked as a nanny during college. I have one grown son. I am retired from corporate management. I have a bachelor's degree in theater, speech and English.
I've recently cared for children from 1 month to age 8. At all times, I am professional, courteous and reliable. I have references with job opportunity. I'm looking for a long term job. I would love to give you a break, day or night, late hours, even over nights if...

I've recently cared for children from 1 month to age 8. At all times, I am professional, courteous and reliable. I have references with job opportunity. I'm looking for a long term job. I would love to give you a break, day or night, late hours, even over nights if needed. I am loving, comfortable around newborns, infants, and toddlers. I love the uniqueness of all ages. I am willing to prepare meals and do laundry for the children, help with homework, read, play fun/educational games, work with you to potty train, bathe, tuck into bed and more.

If you are interested - your children will be loved, engaged in activities and happy. I believe in structure and will follow all rules that you have. I don't like using the TV to do my job; I would rather play games or read.
I'm willing to help elementary students with homework. I have a craft box that I bring that provides new and different activities. We will make things and have fun - and not leave a mess! Your children will be cared for as I would care for my own grandchildren.

Brittney C. says:
Penny arrived 45 minutes early so that we could have time to sit with her, and she could get to know our children. I am the type of mother who was very hesitant about using a sitter, but I must say she made me feel very at ease about the situation. She brought crafts for the kids to do as well. She was very patient with them and made sure they were comfortable. While out to dinner my husband and I didn't even... More

Melissa C. says:
Penny was awesome! She sat for our 2 young children in our hotel room while my husband and I hit the town and went out to dinner, 2 nights in a row. She immediately made me feel comfortable when I interviewed over the phone with her. She was professional, very knowledgeable about kids....especially young ones, and friendly. When she arrived, she was early, to familiarize herself with the kids. My 3-year-old... More

Stacey M. says:
Penny has been caring for our kids on the days school is out and we needed to work. Penny was a great find. She has brought crafts and activities that my daughter loves and she has been great with my special needs son. She didn't shy away from him and got him doing fun activities in and outside the house to the point that he woke up one morning she was coming chanting "I love Penny". What I also appreciate is...

Lisa I. says:
Our family flew to Las Vegas for Spring Break and with two older kids we wanted to get out to enjoy some of the fun LV has to offer kids. Penny stayed with our six month old daughter and was fantastic. She showed up 30 minutes early to get to know our family. She jumped right into feeding our baby and asked all the right questions. She is experienced, confident and thoughtful. We weren't confident about... More

Monica W. says:
Penny helped me in the afternoons this semester after school getting my 8 & 12 year old to after school activities, homework and dinner. I have not written a review because I wanted to keep her a secret! :) She was calm, dependable, punctual, and caring. My kids loved her and call her "Penny Poppins". I highly recommend her.

Melanie B. says:
Penny has been the most fabulous sitter I could ever ask for. She is so kind and sweet with my 2 girls, and does a great job at keeping their little hands busy with activities, games, and crafts. My girls look forward to her coming, and she does a great job at being fun, but also helping them keep to a schedule, doing their chores, etc. We really love Penny, and could not recommend her more for being a wonderful...

Kristin G. says:
Penny was a fabulous sitter for my 20 month old twins. Despite the short notice, she was willing and eager to be my children's first babysitter so my husband and I could attend a wedding. Penny made me feel so at ease with her quick texts to update me on how everything was going at home. We look forward to having you again in the future. Thank you so very much!!! - Kristin and Bill

Rachel C. says:
As new parents and new to Las Vegas, we were looking for someone to watch our 7 month old. Penny was our answer. She was able to get our daughter down for her nap in record time during her first visit. She is confident as she is caring and gave us the peace of mind we were looking for. She also didn't mind taking on the added job of "dog wrangler" for our 75 pound Airedale Terrier.

Nicole B. says:
Penny was great with our 2 year old son. He isn't used to sitters so we were a bit concerned, but he had a wonderful time. We look forward to her watching our son again soon! Nicole 10-8-12

Penny R. responds:
HI Nicole, Thank you for the positive review it is greatly appreciated! Just wondering if you need me anytime soon, I would love to watch Blake while you take advantage of these last days before you welcome your daughter. Of course I'm looking forward to helping when your daughter arrives! IF I can help please let me know. Sincerely, Penny
Heidi M. says:
Great Sitter!
Penny watched my 2 little ones for us and she was wonderful. We were very cautious about having someone watch them and she passed with flying colors. The babies loved her! We look forward to her having her come back! Thank you Penny!

Great Caregiver:)
Penny responds to messages. She is sweet and genuine. Our schedules didn't connect, but I would've been MORE than happy to hire her. We've decided to use her on an as needed basis when our schedules can meet up. GREAT caregiver:)
