  • Babysitter in Upper Marlboro, MD 20772

Meet Iyana

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

Hello!! My name is Iyana. I am a graduate student at Bowie State University. I have 5 years of experience working with children from infants to elementary school aged children. I previously taught 8th grade for a year and a half, working with students who have learning disabilities such as dyslexia, ADHD, and autism. I love being a sitter because each child is different, so every experience is different. I love getting to know each child on an individual level and learning their likes and dislikes. My favorite things to do as a sitter are playing board games, karaoke, going hiking, and cooking.

Iyanna was kind and very professional. Our 2 year old liked her from the moment she walked in the door. She was also thoughtful enough to bring supplies for activities to keep our toddler busy. She truly is a gem and she will certainly be our go to for our sitter needs.

Iyana was great! She was friendly, relaxed and communicative. My boys warmed up to her fast. She came prepared with games and was very flexible with the activities my children wanted to do. My 6 year said she was the "best babysitter he ever had" and my 9 year old said she was "very responsible" both comments were great to hear. Iyana will be our go-to for childcare needs!

Iyanna was on time adjusted well to my toddler who didn't want to relax or hang out with her and after we left kept us updated on everything that was going on from the meals, his nap, and our ensuring our daughter left and came back from an event. I appreciated the communication and would definitely hire Iyana again.

Iyana is a great babysitter. She has sat for my now five year old son in the evenings and weekends. She is very flexible, kind spirited, and playful. She was also helpful in the kitchen when preparing snacks and meals.

We called Iyana to watch our 9 and 7 year old at MGM hotel since we were there for an event. She was there on time and was in the room with my kids. It was a late event so she got in at 10pm and was there till 2:30am. Prompt and responsible in replying. I would definitely recommend her.

I had a fabulous experience with Iyana. She was extremely pleasant to work with. Iyana was timely in responding to my email to set up an interview. She arrived early, was very sweet with the baby and extremely patient. I would undeniably recommend her and I look forward to using her again in the future.

Iyana is an awesome sitter!! She has previously watched my four-year-old son. She is very gentle, kind, patient, and meets every child where they are. It was a pleasure working with Iyana. She is always on time and is very flexible when it comes to adjusting to the needs of the parent and child. I would strongly recommend her for any babysitting position. She is one of a kind!

Iyana is a very reliable sitter and very good with my 2 y/o son. She has come to the rescue several times for me and my family. She’s very kind and exceeded my expectations every time!!!

Iyana babysat for our 2.5 yo and 4 mo kids in our hotel room while we attended the wedding. I was impressed with her professionalism in confirming the job/details beforehand and calm demeanor, especially meeting a new family for the first time in a non-traditional setting. Iyana won over our preschooler (the next day she couldn't stop talking about her "new friend") - which is tough to do with a pandemic baby! It is clear that Iyana both loves kids and is excellent at working with them. We will definitely work with Iyana again!

Iyana was able to book on a short notice < 7 days. She showed up right on time and my children 3 and 6 loved her. I would recommend Iyana to anyone, she did a great job and we will likely hire her exclusively in the future.

Iyana saved us! Two days before going back to work after maternity leave, another sitter who had committed to a full three weeks of full-time care for our five-month-old bowed out for personal reasons. I took to Sittercity, scanning profiles for warm, competent sitters with stellar reviews and experience with young babies. Enter Iyana! She is everything we hoped she be and more. Iyana quickly learned our son’s schedule, incorporating feedback graciously and swiftly as we found adjustments were necessary. During waking hours, she played with him with undivided attention and warmth. She fed him his first purees, managed defrosting my breastmilk, and kept him dry and neat. She brought him outside every day the weather allowed, all the while communicating about her whereabouts. Iyana also was able to immediately master the difficult day-time nap time, and our son is thrilled to see her when he wakes. We’re so thankful for finding Iyana, and even as our full time care starts soon, we’ll definitely be asking her back soon.

Iyana watched my 9 month old daughter, my 6 month old niece and 3 year old nephew during a weekend event. She was great. For starters she was very good with the children; they seemed to really like her. She's pleasant, kind and patient. She's also punctual and reliable. I would hire her again.

Another great experience with Iyana!! We contacted her with a last minute request and she was available. She continues to show up for my family and we are so grateful. Our 3 children love her! We will continue to book Iyana.

Lyana is amazing. She is gentle and patient with our 2 year old. He is always happy when she comes to play with him. I highly recommend her.

Iyana was awesome with our 6 month old daughter when I needed to go out of town and her dad had to go into work. Iyana is so sweet and friendly and checked in with us throughout the day with photos and videos. Iyana wore a mask all day, made sure to document meals, diaper changes and naps as requested and even stopped by before the day we needed her to meet me (I was not going to be home when she arrived the day we hired her for). This was my daughter's first time with a complete stranger and Iyana couldn't have been a better option. I will absolutely be using her in the future for other one-off babysitting needs.

Iyana did great with my 2 year old daughter. She was very patient and kind. We liked her so much that we had her back the very next week.
