Hey My name is Tapita Maeva! I was originally born in Cameroon, Africa and moved to the U.S when I was a child. I currently live in Maryland. I am one of 6 children and I grew up always surrendered by family. I love children very much and family has always been so important to me and it’s one of the reasons why I love to care for kids! I’ve been a sitter for about 3 years going on 4 now. I am 19 years old and I am a college student studying nursing to be a Physicians Assistant or Registered Nurse. I speak English and French fluently, I have my own car and license. I can cook, clean and also help with homework, etc. I’ve taken care of children from the age of 6months - 11 years old! I love being engaged and interacting with the children I babysit. Read more Creating a genuine bond with them is my #1 priority besides their safety and well being. Arts and crafts as well as watching tv and playing outdoors are my favorite things to do when I babysit. Especially since it’s summer now and nice out! It’s a perfect day to play out in the backyard or close to home. Wherever parents feel comfortable with the kids going! I can also swim and if there’s a neighborhood pool that’s always a bonus! (Only for kids that can swim with supervision) if you are looking for a bubbly, caring and trustworthy babysitter for your child, I am the one for you! With love, Tapita Maeva Feel free to text me for more information! I also have references!! 240-370-0512
