I’m a rising senior located in the Bethesda area. Throughout the year I work as a child’s librarian at the Bethesda Dutch school. I’ve also worked as a camp counselor at L’academie de Cuisine. I am CPR and first aid certified, and have completed the babysitting course the Montgomery county offers. My philosophy regarding babysitting is that your child should have a fun time, and feel like they have my full attention. This means that when I’m with your child (or children) my phone is put completely away. I leave it on do not disturb mode, BUT I create an exception for parents so that if you need to reach me that’s always possible. It also means that I plan special activities for your kids: usually craft based! I knit and crochet and I’m happy to teach little ones (helps them build hand dye coordination!). I’m also happy to paint Read more or draw. I love teaching finger knitting and helping them create rainbow loom bracelets! My hope is that your child would be excited to see me when I arrive. Due to summer employment, I am only available after about 3:30 pm on weekdays.
