Meet Jacqueline

  • Speaks English
  • Comfortable with pets

Fully vaccinated! Open availability in February! Hello All, My name is Jacqueline Cooper and I am 26. I have my bachelors degree in Psychology and Anthropology both focusing on child development and caregiving. I am studying to become a child and family therapist. I have nine years of childcare experience as a nanny/babysitter/mother's helper/tutor. I have been both a full time and part time nanny for multiple families for the last 4 years. Some of my clients include a 2 year old girl I’ve been with since she was 3 months old as well as 3 year old twins since they were 9 months old. I have worked with numerous wonderful families through SitterCity and Chime. I have experience with Montessori learning methods and gentle parenting styles. I am very responsible and attentive. I am First Aid and CPR trained and recently background checked. I have glowing references and letters Read more of recommendation upon request. I also have experience administering medicine and children who use epi-pens. I can be counted on to get kids through the evening routine and into bed without too much fuss. I was also an assistant camp counselor for 6 and 7 year old girls so, I am very capable of keeping multiple children engaged with crafts and games as well as safe on field trips. I have spent time as a reading mentor and teacher's assistant for Kindergarten-4th grade. I am a major advocate for early learning and curiosity. The Berenstain Bears are my favorite! This is my 6th full year on Sittercity and I have had repeat jobs and been referred to friends by lovely families I've worked for from the site. I have both letters of recommendations and contact information for references. Finally, I just love children! I am observant and responsive to the different stages in development which helps me attend their needs as well as being an enthusiastic playmate. Additionally, I am also an occasional dog walker so, any furry siblings will also be in good hands with me. I recently became qualified as a home care aid for the elderly through the Department of Aging. I'm definitely a caregiver personality to all. Thank you for reading!

Jacqueline was wonderful! She handled dinner and bedtime with our 3-year old like a pro. Or daughter told us she had a great time, and wondered when she'd be back. We look forward to working with her again!

Jacqueline was so sweet with our 18 month old twins. They warmed up to her immediately. The shy one sat right in her lap to read! She kept our place very clean and was calm and kind with our boys.

She is great. She's always punctual. She improvises well when there's a problem, and she's very entertaining to the children.

Jacqueline is wonderful! She is warm, caring, energetic, respectful of our two children (twins), and also firm when appropriate. Our children have grown very comfortable with her because of her personality and ability to engage them. She is not easily rattled and very calm, which benefits our children’s experience. She is also always on time, responsive, and ready to help us with straightening things, light cleaning, and putting things away. We feel so fortunate to be able to work with her!

I love coming home to a clean living room, and more importantly, happy kids. You know you've found a great sitter when the kids don't want her to leave and willingly give her hugs!

Jacqueline was fantastic! Prompt, courteous, and clearly more fun than Mom, as my kids didn't want her to leave. We'd definitely love for her to babysit for us again!

Jacqueline handled James beautifully and we would recommend her highly to anyone looking for a sitter. I am a stay-at-home mother to our 10-month old son, who is especially mommy centric right now. In addition to that, we were staying in a strange City, in a hotel room - and had plans to be gone 10 hours per day, for 3-nights in a row. (5pm to 3am). She was timely, and very flexible with her arrival (and departure) times as we navigated a strange City and tried to squeeze in a family vacation along with 3 days of concerts. We were late one day, she agreed to stay even later the next night, then she agreed to meet us in a new location the third day, so we could maximize our time out with our son. She brought books and toys with her. She was willing to work any way we wanted to around meal times. She bathed the baby, fed him, took him for walks, read to him, crawled around on the floor with him and comforted him every 15 minutes through several hours of crying/sleep-training each night. When she showed up the next day the baby was always happy to see her, which made us exceedingly confident in her abilities. Jacqueline is a serious young woman, who can be trusted to provide the absolute best care for your baby. We wish she could be a regular part of our routine. Ariel, Joshua and James
