Valerie’s Bio

My name is Valerie and I live in Seekonk, MA. I am Mom of a wonderful daughter who has her Doctorate in the medical field.

I have been baby sitting for over 25 years. I was a stay at home Mom and had my own daycare for several years. Being a Mom myself, gives me the “Mothers instinct” that a teenager doesn’t have. I am CPR/first aid trained and have a back ground check along with a drivers record check from the DMV. I have watched children of all ages from infants to teens including several sets of infant to teen twins.

I enjoy crafts, baking, reading, singing, dancing, sports, going to the park/playground, playing outside, basically keeping the children busy and not just in front of the TV. I pride myself on being extremely responsible, very reliable, dependable, trustworthy and committed to the families that hire me. I have reliable, safe transportation.

I am looking for a date night position.

I would love to speak further regarding your family’s needs. Please feel free to reach me at 508-326-8663.

Thank you for your time and consideration. References will be provided upon interview.

Valerie has been sitting for my 2 young children since January. She is great with them and performs all of her tasks with competence, enthusiasm, and great care. My kids look forward to seeing her and doing all of the activities that she plans for them. She is very dependable and has been extremely accomodating and flexible during emergencies. I would highly recommend her.

Provider's Response

Thank you so much for such a beautiful review. I really enjoy babysitting for your beautiful girls and look forward to coming to see them every week. It such a joy to see their smiling faces and it's so fun playing with them and doing activities with them.

It's always a pleasure to accomodate you with any emergencies or changes that may take place in the babysitting schedule. I try to be very flexible with everyone that I babysit for and I have been told that it is so nice to have someone as reliable as me. I hope our relationship lasts a very long time. Thank you again. Valerie

Valerie has been a babysitter for my boy, Calvin, for about 14 months since Nov.2008.
I was very careful to choose a babysitter before because I just moved to RI and didn't know anyone who could refer the babysitter for me. That was how I got to use the sittersity.
When I interviewed Val, I knew right away that she was the one. She was very energetic, active, bright, and a fun! My boy is always very busy, and so I needed someone who doesn't get tired from playing with him. She just played hockey with him for few hours today, and she was totally ok with it. My 3 yrs old boy loooves her and waits her to come again.
She is very reliable. never get late. really good at emergency. The most thing that I likes her is that she respects the rule that parents made already, follows that and supervise child very properly.
I absolutely recommend her!

Provider's Response

Yoomi,

Thank you so very much for such a wonderful and encouraging review. I absolutely love Calvin as he is my most favorite little boy in the whole world. I treat him as if he were mine, with all the love and care that I can give. He is so much fun to play with and I enjoy every minute with him. When a few days go by that I don't see him, I miss him dearly. I look forward to babysitting him because he brings me such joy and happiness. It is always a pleasure to play with Calvin as he is so entertaining and actually teaches me lots of things, including "how to play hockey". Calvin is the joy of my life and I hope I can be a part of your family for a very long time.

I'm so glad I can be there to help you out in any type of situation, whether it be an emergency or on a weekly basis. That's what I am here for and it is always a pleasure to accommodate you in way I possibly can.

Thank you so much,

Valerie
