Caitlin’s Bio

Hello parents! My name is Caitlin and I am an intuitive, positive, and responsive individual. I live in the Rockville area and work downtown during the week. I am available for occasional evening and weekend childcare. When I babysit, I really enjoy getting to know you as parents and a family. The best part of the job is creating a meaningful relationship with the kids. I still remember the fun babysitters my three younger siblings and I had, and I hope to replicate that experience for your kids!

I am very interactive and love to take the kids outside to play, either in the backyard, around the block, or at a park. Inside is always fun as well, whether it be a dance party, play-dough art, or building a fort. As a babysitter, I’ve primarily worked with children in the 1-9 age range, including twins.

I graduated from American University with my Masters two years ago. Before coming to the area in 2012, I had been living in my homestate of New Jersey where I earned a Bachelors in Spanish from The College of New Jersey. I started babysitting in high school and continued to do so part-time throughout my undergraduate career. In addition, I have extensive teaching experience from studies in secondary education, as a bilingual facilitator for New Jersey's child assault prevention program, and as an English as a Second Language (ESL) instructor. During my undergraduate studies, I also served as a counselor in a traditional summer camp for youth with special needs, for which I received various training in developmental disabilities and the administration of medication. As the daughter of a fire fighter, I would regularly keep up on certifications in first aid and CPR, though I have not renewed my certification since beginning graduate school. Now that I have graduated and settled into a full-time job as a research associate for a progressive nonprofit, I split my free time between babysitting, coordinating the DC TimeBank, and serving on a nonprofit board.

Why else should you consider me as your sitter? I am:

- organized and considerate
- patient and love to help with homework or projects
- creative and enjoy arts & crafts
- comfortable around animals
- a safe driver and non-smoker
- outgoing, fun, and an unforgettable babysitter!

Caitlin is AWESOME! She is able to keep up with our hectic schedules while providing each of my children with fun activities, care and the structured needed. She is extremely responsible, timely and an excellent communicator. She lives up to her profile and more. (My children's age 2, 6, & 8) Thanks :)

We love Caitlin! She has been babysitting for us for over 2 years now and has been wonderful with our kids! She is very responsible, reliable and caring. My kids always have a great time with her when she is here (ages 3 and 1) :)

Caitlin is great!

Caitlin has watched our five year old son on weekends for about a year. She has done a fantastic job with him, reading books together, making up games, and playing with cars, dinosaurs, sidewalk chalk, stickers, and playdoh (and sometimes even bringing new toys). She arrives on time, is very responsible, and does a great job getting a picky eater to have dinner. We wholeheartedly recommend her!
