Meet Keely

Here is a little bit about me. *Self-description* I am spunky, fun and dependable. I enjoy doing crafts and playing games. I also take joy in playgrounds, riding bikes, swimming, the library, and other fun things! I feel I would be a great companion for your child. *Additional information* I began an interest in caring for children when I was 13. I would babysit for families in the neighborhood. As I entered high school they had a day care in one of the wings. I began working there for credit.  From that point on I have always had a job working with children *Challenges of position* I have been with one of my families for 10 years, and I find that as they get older the respect level and listening skills decrease a little bit. It makes it difficult for me implement the rules of the house, so I have Read more to be creative in my methods. *Rewards of position* It is a good feeling knowing that I am an important part in a child's life. Being able to watch them grow and help them with life decisions means a great deal to me.

Keely has been our nanny for nearly a year and she has been just perfect for our family! She is punctual, detail-oriented, and fits in well with a bustling household. She has also been so helpful and does extra tasks around the house, basically when she sees a need, she fills that need, be it an extra load of laundry or dishes or a vacuum. She is also flexible and able to pivot when our work schedules collide or a meeting runs long. Just an excellent caregiver all around!

Keely has been working with us for just over a month and she is a wonderful babysitter and mother's helper. She looks after my 3 and 1 year old sons and they both really like her. More importantly, I trust Keely and feel that my boys are safe with her. Keely is always pleasant and is very easy to get along with. She helps us around the house and is neat and organized. She listens to instructions and follows them and asks questions if she is unsure of anything. I have some allergies/intolerances and issues, and Keely is very accommodating so that I don't have to worry. Keely is also flexible when we need to make changes to schedules and she is very reliable. She is fun and thoughtful. We are so happy we found her!

Keely has been helping us for the last two months with our two boys (8 and 11). She is fantastic! The boys quickly got comfortable with her, and enjoy spending time with her. She brings good energy and has great ideas of things to do to keep them busy and having fun. But also balances the fun with getting things done (i.e. getting out to school in the morning). She does a great job keeping them on track. She's been proactive about checking in with me to make sure expectations are clear and is reachable if I need her or have questions. I would highly recommend Keely, I've very happy we've found her!

Keely is fantastic! We enjoy working with her and, more importantly, our children love her! Keely started babysitting for us on weekends about six weeks ago. She quickly established a relationship with our three and a half year old daughter and one and a half year old son. What we love about Keely: Reliable – always on time, responsive on text Personable, very friendly, very positive Brings activities…which our older one loves Able to navigate a three year old and a one and half year old together…not an easy task as any parent with children these ages will attest Checks with us before doing any new activities or going anyplace with kids She has been so good that we have booked Keely on Saturdays through the summer and into the fall already. Our daughter…who is a picky about babysitters…gets super excited when we tell her Keely is coming to play with her. Literally says “Yay, I am so excited Keely is coming!” Our son, who is also pretty clingy with us, is very comfortable with Keely. Highly recommend.

Keely was amazing. Our kids liked her immediately, and said the same thing the next morning. She is an excellent communicator, was on time, did everything we asked, and has an outgoing and enthusiastic personality! (She even brought a game to play with the kids!) We will definitely ask Keely to come again, and could not recommend her highly enough!

Keely takes care of my daughter after school, and I can't say enough good things about her. She is caring, punctual, always concerned that she is doing what's best for my daughter, and eager to be helpful in any way she can. The other moms who interact with her during school pickup time have also been telling me we've found a real gem. My daughter is completely comfortable with her. We're incredibly lucky to have found her!

Keely babysat for us for the first time last night for a date night. She was wonderful. She was friendly, outgoing and very enthusiastic. She brought over arts and crafts activities for the kids, and engaged and played with them. Our kids seemed instantly comfortable and all 3 kids gave her a "thumbs up" this morning when we asked about Keely and the evening. We are looking forward to her being our morning babysitter for the school year.

Both my kids were nervous before meeting Keely, but warmed up to her quickly. It certainly helped that she dived right into playing with them on their terms. They both said they had lots of fun playing with her. Overall I'd definitely recommend her!

On very short notice, Keely came to watch our girls (18 months and 4 years). It was a surprise date night for my wife, who usually uses her mother or sister as the babysitter, so there was a lot of nervousness at first. Keely won us all over quickly; the kids pretty much shooed us out of the house within 20 minutes, and we all had a great evening. So we are all looking forward to another special night, hopefully in a couple of weeks.

I would recommend Keely as a babysitter. The first time my children met her, they warmed up to her instantly. My two young children (one just turned 3 and the other, 22mos) are normally sociable in nature but they are very sensitive. I was very anxious leaving my children to a sitter. For other than their brief time at a daycare center-school type setting, they had always been cared and watched for at home. But with Keely, I am much less anxious esp as she kept us updated while we are out on how the children we were gone. She is very approachable, attentive and flexible. And, because of her experience with children, I am comfortable that she knows what her priorities are while watching my kids. She knows what to do. She made sure that my children were engaged in something fun while we were out and made sure that they got fed at appropriate times. Things like these may be common/mundane tasks for some, but I had heard of other babysitters who are just there for the pay and would leave the children watching tv all the time. But Keely is a treasure. I am grateful to have met her here in sittercity. She is very reliable.

Keely has been watching my son for a few months now and I cant say enough about her. She is puntual, dependable, and flexible. She is not just a sitter but takes it upon herself to help out around the house. She has no problem playing games, doing homework or even hitting the park. She is a lifesaver for me being a single mom and my son adores her.

I wanted to set up an interview with her and to get her references, but after the exchange of couple e-mails (giving her my full contact information for the purpose of a meeting), she didn't contacted me at all and haven't heard from her since.

Keely babysat my two year old son for several hours one morning. They had not met previously, and my son was a bit shy at first. Keely quickly won him over. She was warm and friendly and interacted with him on his terms. He had no problems when I left. Keely was excellent in terms of keeping him busy (he's very active) and doing numerous activities (going to the playground, reading books, playing with his various toys, arts and crafts). She was responsible in terms of arriving on time, listening to and following my instructions, and giving me a written update of what they had done during their time together. I appreciated this. I would recommend her.
