I have provided care for many families. One of the families has 5 sons, so I am very comfortable taking care of many kids at one time. I am a Certified Nursing Assistant as well as a Home Health Aide. I am CPR certified, and have extensive experience with children with special needs.

We had a phone and in-person interview with Emmarie. She was wonderful with both us and our 5 month old girls. We have had several in person interviews, and no one seemed excited about the babies-interested in holding them, smiling at them, hugging them, etc. Emmarie asked to hold one baby who she got to laugh and smile and who she fed. Then she looked at me with a smile and said, can we trade?! I want to hold the other baby! She held our second daughter who was fussy at the time, and bounced her and got her to settle. She was excellent with us, the parents, as well. After I asked her about her thoughts on getting the girls to nap better, she had smart and gentle ideas about getting our girls to nap longer and on a more regular schedule. I called her two references (families she had worked for) the day before she came to the house, and they couldn't say enough good things about her: responsible, caring, becomes part of the family, knows first aid/CPR (even saved a choking baby!), on time, communicates well, etc. The thing that both of them said is that she developed wonderful relationships with their children, and keeps in touch. The kids love her and are always excited when she visits. She has experience with kids with special needs (some severe) and incorporates them into all activities with the other kids. We were SO excited about hiring her. However, our family situation changed, and I now have our in-laws proving childcare. I wanted to write this review because I know how hard it was for us to find someone we loved. So, I hope this helps another family and Emmarie to find a good match! We were told that we would be lucky to have her. We agree.
