Meet Amanda

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I am a NJ certified elementary education teacher and loving caregiver. I started my care-giving experience in college as a babysitter and had various types of experiences (nannying, date nights, over nights) with children. After college, I spent 2. 5 years in the classroom when the pandemic hit. I decided not to go back to the classroom experience due to the ever changing guidelines and uncertainties about COVID. I would describe myself as compassionate, emphatic, and caring. I am nurturing, loving, and playful. I’m a big kid at heart so I am always singing, laughing, humming, and making funny faces. I enjoy being present with children! If you think I'd be a great fit for your family, please reach out to me! Thank you!

I am so glad that we found Amanda! Having just moved to the area, we were nervous about finding someone to watch our kids, but within minutes of meeting Amanda, I felt at ease. My girls absolutely love having her over! It is so nice to find a trustworthy, punctual, reliable caregiver for our girls!
