Full-time hours
2 yrs of experience

Hello! :)
My name is Karina and I would love to babysit for your family! I am 19 years old and I live in La Center. I have a lot of professional skills as well as hands on experience from years of babysitting, volunteering in various kids camps and nurseries at church, as well as working at La Center's very own preschool/ daycare, "Caring Corner Preschool and Childcare". I loved it! I gained so much knowledge, skills and experience working as a child care professional there. I even took some courses of Early Childhood Learning while I worked there and was First Aid/CPR trained as well. I have also had a professional background check done and fingerprints taken.

I have cared for little babies all the way to elementary age children. At the daycare, I gained a lot of experience with engaging children in fun and educational social activities. I would always play different games inside and outside with the children, do puzzles and arts and crafts, and read books. I would also prepare meals as well as light snacks and clean and sanitize rooms daily. I would also vacuum, do laundry, and change diapers. For the preschool age children I also did educational lessons and crafts with them.
I also have plenty of hands on experience babysitting infants. I have experience bottle feeding, burping and changing babies. I can also prepare formula in a bottle for them and put down your baby for a nap. I am very comfortable with babies and have a lot of experience with them.
For older children, I can help them with their homework. I can also help limit their screen time and encourage playing sports outdoors or being active.
I do not drive right now but I do have 100% reliable transportation to get to your house. I just can not do pick ups or drop offs.
I would love to babysit for you!
I am excited about the opportunity to connect with you and learn more about your family.
Please feel free to contact me if you are interested.
Thank you! :)
