Hello! Let me being by saying that I have always been keen to children's needs since I began babysitting at age 14. I am a mom of an adult daughter and an aunt of eight. I earned my Massachusetts state qualification child care certification in 2000. It does not expire and always valid. Completing this course taught me a lot about child growth and development for the work I did inside the preschool setting, and for interacting with children outside of it as well. I am by nature creative, patient and nurturing. My skills also include sign language and therapeutic activities for special needs. I am an animal lover and pet-friendly. Examples of things I enjoy doing with children are reading, arts and crafts, cooking and baking projects, taking walks, playing outside, and taking part in their favorite activities and hobbies. I hope to hear from you soon! Best regards, Read more Ann Marie

Ann Marie has cared for our cockapoo Winnie for as long as 2 weeks and as short as a weekend over the last few months. She is a thoughtful pet lover that takes her job seriously. Each day we were away we got a note or picture showing how Winnie was doing. We go away knowing that she is in good hands!

My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Ann Marie. We have a very busy household with three older dogs and three cats and an extensive travel schedule. We were worried about finding the right person that could be equally at ease with cats and dogs and who we could trust with our “babies”. When we found Ann Marie, we hit the jackpot. She is TREMENDOUS with the pets. She loves them, nurtures them and cares for them while we are at work and when we travel. This is a very demanding household that could rattle all but the most seasoned professional. With Ann Marie as our pet care provider, my anxiety has been reduced because I know that the pets are in the very best of hands. They not only get their daily dose of exercise, but they also get someone who cares about their well-being and happiness. This in turn has enhanced our well-being. We do not have children, so like many people; we consider our pets as equal family members. I would never consider leaving them with anyone but the best. When we found Ann Marie, we found the very best. I have complete trust and confidence in her abilities and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. If there were a Six Star rating we would give it to Ann Marie!
