Loving And Caring Person
I have been working with children for 13 years as a preschool teacher and I cared for my grandfather till he passed away. I was also a foster parent and adopted my son. I'm dependable and very outgoing.I'm a great companion.

I have worked with children for the last 10 years in various capacities. Working as a Camp Counselor for the past 3 years, and as an Assistant Teacher for the past two while away at college. I have experience creating fun and educational activities for kids (and experienced in cleaning up the activities too)! I have worked with youth aged 3 months to 13 years of age, and love the adventures and experiences that each age bring. I would love to get to know your family more, can't wait to hear from you.

Fun And Responsible Sitter
Hi! I am 20 years old and have been sitting neighborhood children and family friends since I was 12. I absolutely love to be with kids, play games and whatever they want to do! This semester I will be taking my college classes remotely, and so I will have a lot more free time that I would love to fill up by taking care of kids in the community.

Our son is smart and loves one on one interactions. He'll be 3 in May and is on the cusp of reading. He's a busy boy who loves to sing and do crafts. My husband and I both work retail. With Mom owning her own business, he's gotten too old/busy to be at Mom's shop all day. Our ideal caregiver: We want someone who will play with our son, not just sit in front of the TV with him. We want someone who has some experience, and who can keep up with a very active toddler! Additional needs include pick up / drop off, meal prep, having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my 2-year-old son. Looking for care Wednesdays (10:30am-6pm) and Thursdays (9:30am-6pm). My schedule may vary.
