Caregivers who recently joined:

Over the past eight years I have worked with ages from 1. 5-13 years old. My most recent job was at a preschool working with 2 and 3-year-olds. I was responsible for planning and implementing actives, putting the children to sleep at nap time, taking the kids to a local park, and more! All of the children absolutely stole my heart and I still keep in contact with the children from my class, as I often babysit them. I love reading books to and with children! The kids at the preschool expected me to bring in new books every week for them to enjoy! Unfortunately I had to stop working to pursue my Graduate degree in Forensic & Legal Psychology. When I complete my degree I hope to work at the National Center for Missing & Exploited children so I can put both of my passions together to help protect children and try to prevent crimes committed towards them. I am currently tutoring refugees through Catholic Charities (ages 6 and 9) and have found it extremely rewarding!

Part-Time Dog Walker
For 7 months I worked in an animal shelter where I got lots of rewarding, albeit tiring, experience training and caring for lots of different kinds of dogs (as well as cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, chinchillas, and birds). I am now pursuing my dream of becoming a zoo keeper, but I want to continue to work with dogs! I am currently employed at the Leesburg Animal Park! I have two dogs of my own (Max and Suzy) and have plenty of experience with door-darters, leash-pullers, and generally naughty dogs, as one of my own can be pretty difficult at times. I would love to have the privilege of spending time with your fur baby and can't wait to meet you!

Experienced Babysitter Looking For PT Or FT Opportunities In Alexandria
I am a native Alexandrian with almost 50 years of experience caring for children from newborns to preteens. I have a 30-year-old daughter of my own, but throughout the years I have babysat for children of all ages in my spare time because I enjoy interacting with kids. I am retired and looking for either part-time or full-time babysitting or nanny opportunities close to Alexandria, Virginia. I would prefer to watch infants, but am comfortable with any age.
