Cameron’s Bio

Hello, my name is Cameron.

I am experienced working with children of all ages, from newborns to adolescents. I have worked as a babysitter for a total of 12 years, in addition to other jobs working with children. I am comfortable with wide age ranges and multiples. I also love animals and have no allergies.

I am kind, responsible, patient, creative, and fun. I will keep your children nurtured and loved as well as active and engaged with art, songs, movement and more!

My schedule gives me evenings and weekend availability for babysitting. And I am seeking additional daytime hours i the fall. I currently work as a coordinator and teacher at a Montessori School.  I have been there for for 4 years, in addition to past years working in educational settings. I currently work as a toddler teacher and do coordinating in the Nursery level and as a liaison to the primary and elementary level. I also have an internship at a Pediatric Therapy Center, where I have gained additional experience working with Special Needs children.

I have a Dual Bachelor's in Psychology and Social work where I focused on Child Development. I am currently applying to programs to get my Masters in Occupational Therapy and am trying to save for when I am in my program.

Please don't hesitate to shoot me an email. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and I hope to hear from you soon!

Cameron sat our 20 month-old daughter for a couple of hours. Although she may look very quiet at first, yet she indeed knows what to do and how to handle things. At the day of babysitting, she followed our instructions and at the same time paid a lot attentions to details, such as making sure things were placed neatly and our daughter was changed nicely and clean,...and more importantly, our daughter was ever happier when we came back.

I gave her 4 stars for a good job done for our 1st time experience with her!

Provider's Response

Thank you, Rose! This my first babysitting job from this website and I was a little nervous at first. Your daughter was very quite and I was just letting her take my presence in when you and your husband were at home. I usually let the younger ones stay close to the parents and then pay undivided attention to them right after we are left (the first few times), I think this method helps the child become familiar with me and feel unthreatoned by my presence and the mom/dad absence. I am glad you felt I did a job well done, and am happy to hear you want me to come back again! Talk to you soon!

Cameron sat for us weekly throughout the summer. She is
wonderful with our two kids, especially our very rambunctious preschooler. She is very responsible and
tidy as well. We highly recommend her as a sitter.

Our energetic twin boys had a great time with Cameron. Her calm demeanor allowed us to relax and enjoy our evening out. I was impressed that she had a bag full of books and toys to entertain the boys. We asked her to prepare the boys a healthy snack and she was quite happy to do so. Upon arriving home the boys were ready for bed and very content.

Great job. We will definitely be using her again.

Cameron came through for me at the last minute, and we hadn't actually met in person. She was comfortable, at ease and completely competent, putting myself and my two boys at ease. I was running late trying to get out the door and explain everything, and she put up with me splendidly, not at all thrown... very impressive. She connected with my boys immediately. I came home to a clean, straightened up, everything put away home. I hope I didn't scare her away with my frenetic energy, because I would love to have her back. I am VERY particular who is in care of my boys, and again, I was immediately put at ease.
Thank you, Cameron.

Cameron made two appointments with me to meet, both of which she did not show up for. The first, she said she was on her way and 30 minutes after our meeting time I called her and she made up some excuse about being late and then said she couldn't come even though earlier she said she was only a few minutes away. The second time she e-mailed me the night before to confirm on her own and thanked me for giving her a second chance. She then didn't show and didn't call me until 10 minutes AFTER she was supposed to be at my house and gave no explanation as to why she couldn't make it. I had re-arranged my whole Saturday to meet her and driven back from the suburbs. She is not reliable and I caution people to depend on her as I did try and give her a second chance.

Provider's Response

I am sorry for this occurrence, it was entirely my fault. I made a mistake in scheduling an interview during a busy finals week. I am happy to say this sort of problem has not happened before and I hope this never happens again. I have learned from this experience.
