Amylynn’s Bio

I am a very relaxed childcare provider. I am drama free and do believe that all children need understanding  and guidance. I also believe that children are a reflection of their parents which includes their values and how they show respect towards others.
I am a honest , caring, childcare provider. If I can't keep any scheduled appointments I promise to call and reschedule or cancel in a very timely manner. Please leave your name , number and the best time to reach you without that information it will be hard for me to contact interested families.

Amy did a great job for us. We had her sit for our 4 children (ages 8, 6, 4 and 9 months). It was an afternoon to evening job and she had to feed them and put them all to bed. Amy was very professional but fun. She played with them and the kids had a great time. I would definitely use Amy again in the future.

Wonderful family.

I had Amy watch my daughter and take her to school. She was very professional and kept in contact with me letting me know when my daughter was dropped off. Thank you Amy!

Terrific family to work with .

Amy has been watching my son after school for several months. She is very dependable and has good skills for working with my child. I have no worries while I am at work and I often come home to completed homework, an art project, or a Lego structure. I would definitely recommend Amy as a sitter.

Provider's Response

I loved working for this family. Thanks for the great review.

She was great with my 3 year old son. She was also very reliable and I will definitely call her again.

Amy Lynn watched my kids this morning and they LOVED her. I was a little concerned leaving my 2 year old with anyone new because she is very clingy and cries when I leave. Amy Lynn was wonderful with her and had great techniques to calm her down. My 5 year old immediately asked when she was coming back because she had so much fun. Amy Lynn has a lot of experience watching children and is very confident in her ability to maintain control of the kids while still having fun. Thank you Amy Lynn. It's nice to know my kids are in good hands when I have to leave them.

Provider's Response

I had a great time with your 2 terrific and very delightful little girls. I was a little worried about the separation anxiety but the whole day went smoothly. They are both well mannered and very respectful. Thank for such a wonderful review.

Amy has watched both of my daughters ages 2 & 4 and has been wonderful with them. She is very interactive. She engages them in play, and is very patient & kind. My girls enjoy spending time with her. Amy is very reliable and professional. She has been very flexible working with my schedule. She is definitely someone that I recommend and will continue to use in the future for my babysitting needs.-Jen W.

Provider's Response

Jen is a great mom with terrific daughters. The girls are so much fun and very bright.

Amy watched my almost 2 year old this past Saturday and was great! This was our first non-family sitter and she brought some activities which were already in full swing when we left. No tears from my daughter. Amy fed her dinner and they did some art projects together. After Amy left, my daughter talked for 20 minutes about what they did together and how much fun she had!

Already working on scheduling another date night!

Provider's Response

Thanks so much for the great review. I enjoyed our time together . Your daughter is a wonderful bright child. I'm so happy she had a good time.

For the past several months, Amy has been watching our daughters (ages 9 & 6) in the mornings before school/camp. She has proactively encouraged them to spend their time reading, doing puzzles or crafts & other outdoor activities. She has always maintained good discipline. During this time, Amy has always been flexible, on time and great with our girls (& dog). We always have peace of mind knowing the kids are in good hands with Amy.

- Alicia G.

Provider's Response

Thanks for the great review. I have enjoyed my time with the girls both are wonderfully intelligent and joy to be around.

Never showed up

I had an appointment to meet with Amy lynn. She never showed up, she never returned my call after I left a phone message. She has deleted my review.

- Sue F.

Provider's Response

I do recall speaking with this woman but we never set up a time to meet. I asked her to get back to me to confirm a date and never heard from her. Sorry she feels that it is important to place this on my profile but I never miss appointments and if i can't keep my appointments I do cancel with plenty of notice .
