Looking for work as a babysitter or nanny

  • 19 years paid experience
  • Babysitter in Portland, ME 04102

Meet Jada

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

Hello! I am an experienced caregiver who has participated in childcare for over 19 years as a nanny, babysitter, and in center based environments. I have experience with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, and I have cared for children up to age 16. I am currently watching two 6 year old boys. I put emphasis on learning through play, and, being a nature lover, try to find ways to incorporate nature in our activities. When with your child, we can sing, read, dance, do art projects, listen to music, go for walks, and take field trips to farms, the museum, playgrounds, and other fun places. I have taken child development classes, so I am pretty aware of where kids are developmentally. Respecting others is important to me, so I try to find teachable moments to convey this. I am first aid/CPR certified. I have reliable transportation, and consider myself to be Read more very reliable as well. I am looking to work in Portland, or within 25 miles of it.

Jada is wonderful, kind, communicative , positive , reliable, calm . She keeps me updated about my sons time with her, she helps me feel connected to him when I’m not there which I greatly appreciate. We continue to use her when we can !

Jada took care of our 20 month old son a couple days a week so my husband and I could work while waiting for his daycare to reopen due to covid. She immediately established a wonderful rapport with my son and I felt completely at ease while at work. They spent a lot of time outside and went on a few super fun outings! My son adores her and we will continue hire her as often as we can!

Jada is dependable, trustworthy and very sweet with all my pets. I have two elderly dogs who take a variety of medications, and additionally, I have a young, hyper dog. Jada has bonded well with all of them and has taken excellent care of them several times, for days at a time. Did I mention I also have a cat? She loves Jada, too based on the snuggle pictures I get when Jada is petsitting!

Jada watched our daughter one evening while we were vacationing in Portland. I was nervous, as we never had a babysitter before and my daughter was teething/not sleeping well. Jada quickly put my mind at ease during the interview and night she arrived to babysit. She responded to texts immediately and was super flexible. We felt totally comfortable leaving our eight month old in her care. Jada is so wonderful and I would highly recommend her! What a great find!

Jada babysat for our 11 month old daughter while we attended a wedding in ME. She was very responsive from the start, which really helped ease my anxiety and made it easy to coordinate with her. Jada clearly loves children and has a lot of experience; I felt that my daughter was very well cared for and had fun while in Jada's care. Jada is very responsible, caring, and easy to work with!

Jada cared for my 2 month old during a week we spent with family in Maine. She was wonderful with the baby and all of the many family members who came through the house. (We were around for much of the time she was working.) She was caring and warm and communicated really well -- asked good questions and always let us know what we needed to know before she left each day. I wish we lived close so Jada could care for our baby at home too.

Jada watched my 3 year old for the day. She was prompt and enthusiastic, and they had a great, active day together. I would definitely contact her again for future needs.
