Meet Carissa

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I formerly worked at Child Care Center. I am CPR and First Aid Certified through the company I did work for. I have also done some other trainings outside of my company like Seizure First Aid. I am very aware of all the children at all times. I am comfortable watching more than four kids at a time. I am used to working with kids at the age of 2 and up! I left my the center I worked for personal reasons. I do have a “full time” job and my hours vary. However, I enjoy babysitting when I can! I am NOT that babysitter will just sit on their phone the whole time. I WILL interact with them by playing board/card games, puzzles, reading a book to them, etc.
