Meet Karen

  • Comfortable with pets

I have worked as a nanny/babysitter for the past 6 years on and off. I have cared for babies through teenage years. I am comfortable with up to six kids at a time hopefully of all ages! I love to play teach and learn with the children. My philosophy is to treat each child as if they were my own. My goal is to keep them safe active and loved. I love music reading playing and the outdoors and I share my love of these things with the children. I encourage children to be creative and use their imaginations. I try and make each day an adventure whether it is to put on a play, make a artistic masterpiece, go on a hike to collect things from nature or have a very occasional rainy day movie with popcorn and blankets so they can snuggle in! I love kids and love Read more interacting with them which makes me not just a sitter but a care giver!
