Hi! My name is Katie and I am looking for an occasional/part-time babysitting gig while I am at school. I am a rising senior at PSU, majoring in Health Policy while also working on my master's in Public Health. I have a lot of experience working with kids! I have my car with me at school so transportation is not an issue. I am fully vaccinated and boosted as well. My schedule is very flexible, so please message me if interested!

Hi! My name is Drew and I have over 6 years of childcare experience! I come from a giant family, so watching my younger cousins has always been a great joy of mine. I began as a mother's helper in middle school and worked my way up to babysitter, which I've done for years now. I worked in a gym daycare watching over children ages 3 months- 12 years, and even worked as a camp counselors for 2-6-year-olds. Overall, I adore kids and would love any chance to get to work with them! Thank you so much!
