Looking for work as a babysitter or nanny

  • Babysitter in Los Angeles, CA 90031

Meet Alison

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

My name is Alison Banowsky and I have 15 years of experience babysitting. I have worked with infants to teenagers both in home settings as well as in the classroom. I'm an active and enthusiastic person and believe I'm not doing my job if I'm not keeping my families active as well. I love arts and crafts, the outdoors, reading, playing games, singing songs, and being silly. My mom worked as a pre-school teacher, and growing up I was exposed to lots of the activities that she did with her kids, which has been a really helpful resource for me. I studied theatre in college and believe my creative abilities make me ideal for working with children. I love babysitting because unlike many other jobs, it gives me an opportunity to build a strong relationship with the people I work for, as well as the ability to be playful and Read more creative.  I'm an animal lover and have no problem working in a home with pets of any energy level. :)

Alison was great! She nannied for our 20 month-old son full-time for a little over a month. Right away we felt comfortable with her, as did our little boy. Upon returning home, we saw how much fun our little one had througout the day! Alison is enthusiastic, creative, patient, honest, punctual, and a good communicator. She was flexible and very open to our suggestions. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her and, if we weren't moving, we'd make her our permanent Nanny. We highly recommend Alison!
