Hello,  My Name is Amanda Jansen, I am 28 years old. I grew up in Southern California and have been teaching Preschool for the past 8 years. I love children with all my heart. I live in Ontario and am a full time Christian preschool teacher. I am looking for some part time babysitting work for weekends or the occasional date night . I am very responsible and work hard at everything I do. I started babysitting children ages 5 months and up since I was twelve and have loved every minute of it.   My definition of a babysitter/caregiver is someone who is responsible, caring, and places the child or children first. Showing respect for the child, and having the child respect the adult. I will not tolerate tantrums and believe there is a right and wrong way of enforcing rules. I always make a point to have children Read more in bed on time, and enjoy reading a bedtime story to help prepare them to sleep. It is always hard for the child to fall asleep the first few times without their parents there, so I do whatever I can to help them feel safe and cared for. I love playing with children, helping them to be physically active all day long, with sports and creative games while laughing and having fun with them.  I have cooked since I was 12 so that is not a problem. I have completed my associates degree in early childhood education, and have also received my teachers permit.  I am very flexible, always on time, and do my best to work my schedule around your needs for a caregiver. Experience caring for twins Very comfortable caring for 4 or more children as I teach 19 daily :)  If you have any questions or would like to call my references please feel free to e-mail me anytime  Thank you :)  Blessings,  Amanda Jansen

Amanda took care of our two boys (age 2 and 7) when we were in California for a family vacation at Knott's Berry Farm. This was my first time using sittercity and using a babysitter in a different city that wasn't through a personal recommendation. The boys loved her and I felt very comfortable leaving the boys in her care. She arrived on-time and brought some coloring activities to do with the boys in the hotel room.

Amanda is a great sitter. I use her as a back-up to a regular afternoon sitter and for evenings or weekends. My daughter Ella, who is 3 years old, really likes spending time with her and talks about her even after she's gone home. She's been available every time I've called her, sometimes at a drop of a hat. We will definitely keep using her anytime she is free!
