Mariah’s Bio

Hello,

NOTE: I only offer occasional babysitting, event babysitting, and youth voice lessons. Due to high demand, I have created an online booking calendar at https://mariahpoppins.youcanbook.me/ if you have any upcoming dates where you will need a sitter; my availability is valid until the end of May. I will update my summer availability in May.

My name is Mariah, I am majoring in Business Management and minoring in Vocal Classical Music Performance at the University of St. Thomas as a Senior, I start my full-time job for UnitedHealth Group as a Senior Business Analyst this June (will still babysit on the weekends!), I am certified in CPR/First Aid, I speak German, I passed the Nanny Skills Exam and I love kids!

I am seeking occasional babysitting jobs during the school year and/or summer. For babysitting, my starting rate is $13 per hour for up to two children; $1 per hour extra for each additional child. I request a few extra dollars for travel time if I need to drive more than 5 miles to get to your house and $15 per hour for jobs that are 4 hours or less on a Friday or Saturday night.

I am mom-approved, I always do dishes and light cleaning after the kids go to sleep, and I am not a TV sitter; I will involve your children in age-appropriate activities. I was a full-time nanny for a family with 3 school-age boys in Fargo, ND during the summer. I transported them to and from their activities, we played a lot of sports, and we went on various "field trips" to places like Yunker Farm, the Red River Zoo, the library, etc. I don't think we spent more than a couple of non-consecutive hours a week inside the house.

I also tutored a Kindergartner in reading and math and an incoming third grader in reading, math, and spelling.

I am an active outdoors person who loves to play all kinds of sports (volleyball, tennis, golf, basketball, Frisbee golf, soccer, softball, football, etc.) and I love to play sports with the children in my care. I am a bit of a tomboy myself, so I have no problem with throwing a spiral or shooting hoops.

The fine arts also play a huge role in my life. I was involved in musicals, drama, and dance in high school and now I am involved in choir in college.

I have found that most children love to take part in acting games or sing-a-longs of some kind. Sometimes I teach them simple dance moves from a musical I've been in like Singing' in the Rain or All Shook Up.

Thank you for your time!

Babysitter

Mariah babysit for our family for the first time last weekend. She was on time, brought a basket of games and toys with her and my children loved her. We definately will have her back!

Provider's Response

Thank you for the lovely review! :) I had a lot of fun providing care for your children and I hope your family has a great week.

Responsible and fun

Mariah was very good with our son (5 yo), as we had a last-minute need for a babysitter right at bedtime. She communicated with us really well, and jumped right in to read him bedtime stories and got him to sleep. Will definitely be calling on her again!

Great Sitter

I have had Mariah babysit twice now for my toddler and newborn. We are very comfortable with her and think she's fantastic. Mariah came to the house both times with books and toys to keep our toddler entertained. The second time she came, my daughter was excited all day that Mariah would be coming with books and toys for her. No matter how many toys a child has, they tend to get pretty excited about anything new or different. We also noticed that Mariah picks up and does dishes. This is something I always did back in my own babysitter days, but I haven't found that to be the norm with our sitters. Another thing I appreciate about Mariah is that she sends out a text message with her availability. We have found Mariah to be dependable, flexible, and willing to do what she can to accomodate us.

Prompt and Organized for me...and Fun for my kids!

Mariah is a very responsible and caring sitter. Scheduling with her is a breeze with her on-line calendar available for you to look through. She sends calendar invitations, communicates frequently, and makes everything very easy for the parents!

On the kids' side, Mariah was really fun! They told me stories the next day about how she played with them and made them laugh. They usually aren't so detailed, but they were with her.

We will definitely be using Mariah again soon!

Excellent sitter!

My daughter had a blast with Mariah this weekend. Mariah was on time, brought a bag of toys, and took great care of my daughter. Would definitely book Mariah again. In fact, the next morning, my daughter asked, "When's Mariah coming back?" Highly recommend!
