Janae’s Bio

Hi, 
My name is Janae and I have babysat many families in Atlanta while I attended college at Georgia Tech. I now live in Southwest DC (waterfront area) and work for the Navy as an engineer at the Navy Yard. I love spending time with children and understand how important it is to have a sitter who is reliable, on time, and who can impart the same structure and values as the child's parents. I love to have fun and take children outdoors to the park or on a stroll to see the sights in the city. Does your child like going out for jogs in a stroller or on walks with the dog? Great, me too! After your child is asleep, or while they are doing their homework, I am more than happy to clean and I always leave a home cleaner than I found it. Need some help with grocery shopping? No problem, just leave a stroller and shopping list and we will get it done. 

I am happy to help you with your babysitting needs, including:

- Any age
- In-home or in-hotel
- Play time/ art/ sports/ parks
- Bath time
- Cooking (real cooking, not microwaving!)
- Cleaning and other chores
- Transporting to and from events and activities (I have my own car, 2010 VW Tiguan) Note: Child safety seat required by law if child is under 7 years of age in DC and VA, and for those under 8 in MD (car seat to be supplied by parent during use). Also, I have Zone 6 DC parking permits if street parking is necessary.
- Homework
- Pet walking and care
- TV-free/Computer-free childcare
- Beginners experience with baby sign language ASL
- If babysitter night is your child's special night to watch a movie, I have a portable DVD library with over 30 kids movies.

More about my babysitting: Besides several years of babysitting during college in Atlanta, I have spent the past year caring for a few families that include 5 children ranging in age from a few weeks old to 5 years old.

More about me: I love to keep busy and active. I love to learn. I attended an all-women's college called Agnes Scott College in Atlanta to study Psychology and Spanish before studying at Georgia Tech. I have a Master's degree from Naval Postgraduate School. I have lived in DC for 5 years, and have spent all of my time living in the SW area. I love to collect hobbies, and keep busy with CrossFit, sailing, running, and photography. My favorite food is homemade ice cream and custard from the Dairy Godmother (in Del Ray) and I have a pet bulldog who is 7 years old and very stubborn.

Janae was fantastic! I had her watch my 16 month old on a holiday that my husband and I both had to work. The challenge was that I was going to work from home so she would have to distract my daughter. She did that without a problem. My daughter took to Janae right away - I didn't hear one cry the whole day. Janae gave her lunch, put her down for a nap and gave her a snack. She was enthusiastic and professional. We will have her back!

Janae is truly wonderful - professional, friendly, open and caring, with an obvious love of kids. During our phone interview, she asked all the right questions and showed a genuine interest in our 13-month old's likes and dislikes. Not only was this the first time we'd left him with anyone, but we were also in a different city and unfamiliar surroundings, which our son often finds unsettling. Janae managed the whole job with aplomb, getting him bathed and into bed (and asleep!) with no problems. She also kept us updated via text, which went a long way to calming any anxieties we had as 'first-timers'. We just wished we lived in DC so we could have Janae as our regular sitter :)

Highly recommend Janae. She was great with my 3 children. She was thoughtful enough to stop at the grocery store for us and purchase special milk needed for our baby and to leave our daughter a goodbye gift. She babysit for us while we were staying at a hotel in the area. Janae managed to find things to do to entertain the youngest and sent pictures to me while I was away as well as texts to let me know when the children were asleep. I would not hesitate to recommend Janae.
