Meet Raquel

Hello! My name is Raquel. I have been caring for children since I was 14 years old. With 9 years of experience as a sitter and 4 years of experience as a nanny, I can confidently say I'm comfortable with any number of children and any age group of children. In my years as a caregiver I have cared for newborns all the way up to preteens. I do have the most experience with infants and toddlers.

My experience also includes taking caring of multiple children at a time as well as twins. I am experienced with taking children to school, classes and play dates. I have helped...

Hello! My name is Raquel. I have been caring for children since I was 14 years old. With 9 years of experience as a sitter and 4 years of experience as a nanny, I can confidently say I'm comfortable with any number of children and any age group of children. In my years as a caregiver I have cared for newborns all the way up to preteens. I do have the most experience with infants and toddlers.

My experience also includes taking caring of multiple children at a time as well as twins. I am experienced with taking children to school, classes and play dates. I have helped with potty training, learning to read, switching babies from liquids to solids, weaning from breastfeeding, etc.

Safety is the most important thing to me so I'm CPR certified and First Aid trained.

I have volunteer experience in homework help and tutoring after school for grammar school aged children. I have helped in other after school activities with kids, such as learning to read music, putting on plays, and playing softball.

I used to be a vegetarian so I have experience with preparing and cooking healthy vegetarian and vegan food.

I can provide a detailed resume that includes all my experience, my references, and letters from references. Please message me if you are interested.

I look forward to working with your family.

Brooke M. says:
I made arrangements for Raquel to babysit and she had an emergency with her dog at the last minute. She did tell me about it and an emergency is understandable so I made arrangements for her to come another night. Raquel simply did not show up, no call, no email no text and no response to my message asking where she was. So the two times I made plans because I thought I had a babysitter arranged I was unable... More

Raquel B. responds:
Sorry for needing to cancel twice but things do come up that are out of my control. I did tell you that I had a family emergency which I don't want to go into detail about online. There wasn't a way for me to contact you until the next day, which I did as soon as I could. What happened was a one time event & I wish you would have given me a chance to make it up, like I asked you to let me.

I am a very reliable...

Anneliese M. says:
Raquel just started working for us. She's dependable, flexible with her schedule, and has developed a nice relationship with my daughter so far. She helps my daughter with homework, helps her finish her dinner and get her ready for bed on time. We have used her services only a few times, but so far so good. Great work Raquel.

Raquel B. responds:
Thanks for the review! It's been great watching your daughter so far. She's funny & smart. I enjoy helping her with her homework & reading to her. I look forward in continuing to watch her.
Cathy M. says:
We have a 6-month old son and Raquel was great with him. We had a family member who was willing to take care of him but if that was not the case we would have continued working with Raquel. She worked with us full time as we are both working parents and she was always on time, read to him, gave him baths, etc. A family would be lucky to have her!

Raquel B. responds:
Thanks for the review Cathy! I loved working with your family and wish we could have had a longer working relationship but I am looking forward to watching him on occasion from now on.
Melissa J. says:
I have used Raquel as a date night sitter for the last few months. I'm very happy with her! She gets along great with my three kids, all under the age 8. She always gets them to eat dinner and get to bed on time! Plus my kids love her.
