Your Go-to Girl
Hello, my name is Rickiesha but I often go by Kiesha. I am 27 years old and started paid babysitting when I was 13. Since then, I've had 3 children, current ages; 10 (boy), 4 (girl), and 3 (boy). My current occupation is a medical assistant, in pediatrics. I am flexible and do not mind babysitting at your home or mine, wherever you feel most comfortable. I also may be willing to adjust my availability schedule so if you need something outside of my preferred schedule, please communicate. Because I am an MA in pediatrics, I do have CPR certification and emergency preparedness. Pets are ok. I highly prefer to meet children prior to babysitting so setting up a play date before hand if at all possible is recommended but not required.

Fun Sitter And Helper!
I have 3 little brothers and tons of little cousins I care for regularly. I also have had regular baby-sitting jobs in the past for family's in my neighborhood. I am willing to help out with chores and school work. I also coach a 12u volleyball team so I have lots of experience working with kiddos!
2 yrs of exp.
I have spent the last two years working with special needs children across a range of ages and skill levels. I love working with children and grew up in this type of environment due to my mother being a nanny since I was young.

Hi there! We are looking for a great babysitter for 1 child in Vancouver. We would prefer someone who could help out with meal preparation as the time goes over lunch. We would prefer a babysitter who does not smoke. My son REALLY wants to stay home, inside, and play pretend or games on the weekends so I am looking for an energetic, imaginative caregiver for this time (so I can go for a quick hike or swim and enjoy the nice weather). I will be fully vaccinated for Covid19 by the start date and we are hoping to find someone who is vaccinated too. This would be for every other Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Hope to talk more soon!

I am needing someone to take my almost 2-year-old son for about 6-8 hrs Tue and Fri. He is a good boy just active so I can't get anything done. Someone with other littles would be awesome he enjoys other kids. Our interests and values: we are somewhat active we try to get outside to parks and social time for the kids daily. We are laid back we try to make clear consequences and follow through with them. The kid love anything where he can move and play. He doesn't sit for long and loves being outside. He also loves to play with other kids. He isn't potty trained yet and doesn't like napping (he definitely still needs them though We're looking for someone who has patience but is firm with rules. I can bring him to you.
