Caitlin’s Bio

Hello! My name is Caitlin and I am a reliable and creative person with a wide range of experience in working with children. Please read on to learn more about me and I look forward to speaking with you soon!

I have worked as a babysitter/nanny for 10+ years. Additionally I have worked as a music therapist, piano instructor, toddler/infant music teacher, and camp counselor. In caring for and working with children, I value the importance of a maintaining a structured environment that still leaves plenty of room for spontaneity and creativity. I love to incorporate arts & crafts, music, and outdoor time into our day. I find opportunities to teach children about the world through exploration and hands on activities. I approach each day with patience, openness, and creativity. I am also skilled and experienced in the areas of lego house building, game playing, silly song singing, and spontaneous dance parties!

I have worked with children ages 3 months to 13 years. My music therapy experience has also given me the opportunity to work with individuals with various special needs and psychiatric conditions. I have worked in two different psychiatric care facilities where I provided music therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. My variety of work experiences have given me an extensive skill set for providing exceptional childcare.

I am a person who has a great passion for life - I love to make music, to be in nature, and to travel – I dream of seeing as much of the world as I possibly can. I love photography and I enjoy scrapbooking the moments and memories I capture. I am passionate about hooping (dancing that incorporates a hula hoop!), and I also enjoy yoga and hope to study circus aerial performance someday. In my life, I simply hope to never stop learning, exploring and finding things to be passionate about.

Upon request, I have multiple contacts available for references. Looking forward to talking to you soon!

Caitlin was very prompt - and on only 2 hours notice. She was great interacting with my active 6 year old son and he gave her the thumbs up the next day when I asked. Clearly responsible and knew what she was doing - would hire her again.

Caitlin took care of our kids from September 2009 to March 2011 and what a pleasure it was to have a dependable, mature and fun person. Our kids learned a lot from her artistic personality. Many times we were surprised by little things that she did with the kids, from drawing to helping our daughter advance with piano.

Caitlin is amazing at multi-tasking and managed our newborn wonderfully. It always felt like she was part of our family and we were sad when she moved to the Washington Metro area. We give Caitlin our highest recommendation and wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.

Caitlin in a phenomenal sitter - she handles our 5 month old wonderfully and is also great with our nearly 4 year old. My usually clingy daughter is excited when her 'friend' Caitlin is coming over and barely gives us a glance when we walk out the door! Highly recommend!
