Hi! I am a pediatric speech therapist who will be relocating to Michigan in July and would like to spend my time off (before my new job) taking care of kids. I've grown up babysitting younger siblings, cousins, and kids in my community who have ranged from 3 months to 10 years old. Typically, I care for 3-4 kids at a time and truly enjoy creating fun activities and games for us to play!

Hello! My name is Jenna, I am 19 years old currently working as a dental assistant at a local dental office. In the next year or so, I will be entering into the dental hygiene program at KVCC. I grew up in a household full of kids of all ages due to my mom owning an in home daycare here in Portage. I have lots of experience with children of all ages, I am CPR certified, and I am also willing to help the older kids with school work if needed. I am comfortable with having pets in the household as I have my own fur baby! If you are in need of a dog sitter, I am open to do that as well. I appreciate you taking the time to read my bio, hopefully I will get the opportunity to meet your little ones!

We are looking for a reliable caregiver for our child that we are expecting later this summer. We won't know our schedule until closer to the start date but we are hoping to find a caregiver that is available for 2 or 3 days a week to come to our home and and watch our child while my husband works from home and makes sales calls.

Looking for a summer childcare for our 11-month-old son out of our home in Portage. There is potential for long term employment, pending compatibility with our family, though currently looking for someone at least through the summer. We would prefer someone who could help out with light housekeeping as needed. We are looking for a nanny/babysitter who we can count on to reliably be here Monday-Friday. It is important to us that you have your own car with strong driving record, and a lighthearted, friendly, and fun personality that fits in with our family! We'd like someone who is reliable, has experience with infants and/or majoring in early education, and is comfortable with dogs. Candidates will be expected to interview and provide 2-3 references. Please message if you'd like to learn more!
