Alyssa’s Bio

Hello, I am Alyssa! I'm currently looking into going a different direction in my life. I have always loved being around children and watching them grow! I am currently studying to become a special education teacher and since being in school I miss nothing more than being around kids, and helping out parents that are in need of a nanny/babysitter.

I have babysat for many, many families. Babysitting between newborn to pre-teens, all ages I absolutely love! I am a regular babysitter for three families. I have watched all six kids at once, and although they kept me busy, I kept them even busier with crafts, activities, and tons of fun!!

Being someone the kids and parents can both rely on is such an awesome feeling! Stepping up for the parents when they are too caught up in the busy work life is my speciality, cleaning up around the house, taking the kids where need be, and making parents life a little less stressful when they come home to the kids!

"What makes a babysitter special, is the content of the heart. It starts with a love of children, what a beautiful way to start." - Author Unknown
