Andrea’s Bio

Hello, my name is Andrea. I have over 10 years of experience in childcare for all ages and 6 years of experience directing my own infant daycare. I am highly skilled in providing care for young children, such as preparing healthy meals, feeding, bathing, assisting with daily routine and provide and create developmental activities. I strongly believe that learning is one of the most important aspects of a young child's life and it should be constantly encouraged, so I try to take advantage of everyday situations and turn them into a learning opportunities for the kids I take care of. I am a self-starter person ,extremely reliable, organized, responsible, friendly, positive, caring and nurturing with a loving and patient personality. I am accustomed to working efficiently in any situation. I am certified Infant/Child CPR and First Aid, I am a naturalized US citizen, I have a valid and clean U. S. driver's license.

Andrea has been watching my 13 month old daughter since she was 3 months old. She is more than I could have ever hoped for in a nanny for my little girl. She is trustworthy, honest, caring, thoughtful, reliable, patient, and is amazing with children. My daughter has become very attached to Andrea. She is the one person who my daughter doesn’t cry with when I leave the house. Andrea always plays with my daughter and takes time to read her stories and go for walks. She has become a dear friend and is like family to us. Andrea is an absolutely wonderful nanny and I hope to have the pleasure of having her in our family’s life for several years to come.

Provider's Response

Susan, Eric, I want to express my heartfelt appreciation for the opportunity in caring for Alyssa these past 17 months. There is no comparison for the love and experience that was shared. I will truly miss my extended family. This is not goodbye but I hope to always stay in touch. Sincerely, Andrea.

Andrea was excellent. We had posted an ad three days before we needed a sitter and she was the first to respond. She even called in the morning to follow up. I found her to be very professional, timely, and kind. She even cleaned my kitchen, which was very sweet of her. My son, who is 18months old, loved her. He didn't even seem like he missed me when we got home! She called several times to check in and let us know how he was doing, which I also appreciated. I highly reccomend Andrea to anyone who wants a kind and professional sitter.

Andrea has cared for my three children multiple times now and we have had such a wonderful experience. She is very reliable, sweet and loving but more importantly the children can't stop talking about how much they really liked her. Her experience is evident in her care and we really feel very comfortable leaving the children with her.

Andrea did such a great job babysitting for us this past weekend. Despite the short notice, she was able to meet with myself and my daughter in the morning to ensure that we were comfortable. My daughter loved her and Andrea took good care of her. Andrea even took care of our family dog, which was not required. We are so thankful for Andrea and will definitely ask her to babysit again in the future!
