Dear Parent, Look no further for the best babysitter your children can have :) I am 22 years old and have been babysitting since I was 17. I also have been married since '09 with no kids on my own. That being said, I am a very mature, responsible and trustworhty young lady. I love children, they make my days happier and I know they love me back. I am caring, loving, responsible, punctual as well as disciplinarian. I love to be outside, where they can run around and have plenty of fun. I like taking them to playgrounds, parks, bike rides, scooter rides, zoos, library and movie theaters. I also love to read books, play board games and do arts and crafts! We can also have some fun in the kitchen now and then, baking and decorating cupcakes, cake pops or cookies. I can cook, drive and do some light housework if needed, and if time allows it. I have my own car to/from work, NY driver license and a clean driving record. I am a college student, so I am looking for something to start after 1 pm. I am very flexible, but I need 25 to 30 hours per week, and I prefer a weekly salary to be set. I am looking for a family that can embrace me as one of their own as I do the same. I am open to be paid on the books, but not it is not required. I know what I am worth and you will never regret hiring me. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Hope to hear from you soon. Regards.

Although I am young, I have been given the opportunity to babysit and take care of children since I was 13 years old, starting with the birth of my niece in 2002. Since then, a few older friends of the family have allowed me to to watch their children aged from infancy to 5 years. I have cousins that are a lot younger than me, and when I have the time, I readily watch them for my aunts and uncles. I am currently and RN student and I have had extensive training in working with and treating the younger population.

I have previously worked for 2 families starting from the year 2011, to early this year. I loved working for both families and I was sad that I had to leave after watching the children that I cared for everyday grow into such loving individuals. I handled everything from light house keeping, meal preparation, bathing and feeding time, grooming, arranging play dates and setting up activities to help promote the emotional and physical health of each child.
