Looking for work as a babysitter.

  • 15 years paid experience
  • Age 60
  • Babysitter in Stuart, FL 34996

Meet Melinda

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I’m a retired educator and marine scientist with over 30 years of babysitting and teaching experience. I babysat throughout the time I raised my own three children and then held several positions teaching hands on science to all grade levels. I recently moved here from Virginia and am seeking occasional opportunites to babysit since I travel a few times per year. My CPR and first aid certifications are not up to date but can easily be acquired. I hold a Bachelors degree from The Ohio State University, love nature and anything related to the sea and will be happy to provide hands on science lessons to clients for a small added fee. My references are strong and one has been a local for over 20 years.
