Helen’s Bio

I absoluetly love kids and have babysat for all ages of children including some that are in high school. I am a former high school teacher, that's learned to provide structure as well as learned the great art of patience with all children. I am very flexible and can handle any sort of directions left for me for your children. I can whip up dinner with practically nothing and I consider sitting a learning experience for myself in interacting with children. 
I'd love to hear from you!

Helen is awesome. She helped me take care of my 9 month old son this summer for the month of July. She was absolutely awesome
and my son loved her from the moment she walked through the door. We always looked forward to her return everyday. Helen has a lot of energy and was very entertaining. She played with my son and took him out for walks, swimming and to Kangazoom. I would have given anything to keep her but she had to return to her teaching job after the summer.
Helen, thank you so much for all your help this summer. I would definitely like to have you back next summer if you are in town.

We will definitely ask Helen to sit for our daughter again! She seemed fun and energetic and our daughter took to her instantly. We hesitated giving her a great review because we want to keep her all to ourselves! :)

Helen has been babysitting for my three children, ages now 2, 4, and 6, for the past year and a half. She is extremely dependable and trustworthy. My kids love her and warmed right up to her the very first time she came. She was able to make even my baby, with very severe allergies and eczema, feel comfortable. I highly recommend Helen!!!

Helen did a great job with my infant twins! It was the first time I had left them with anyone other than family and I was very nervous. They both took to her immediately. She is very animated and bright. I only wish I was able to have her for more hours over the summer!!!

My kids loved Helen! We needed a sitter to watch our kids at the hotel while in town on business--Helen was perfect! She got the kids up and away from the TV, supervised homework and led art projects. She arrived on time and came prepared! My kids and I would highly recommend Helen.

Helen is absolutely phenomenal with young active children. My husband and I are both law enforcement agents and very cautious parents, seeing Helen interact with our three year old son gave us the peace of mind we needed to enjoy nights out. Helen always came over with ideas on how to keep our son busy and did very well with our regimented routine. We wish we could keep her all to ourselves but she's so good we had to share!
