Rebecca’s Bio

I am available for some weekday, evening and weekend babysitting!

I am a 27 year old social worker with a background in education as well.  I am a non-smoker with a clean driving record. I charge $15 to $25 an hour depending on how many children, what is expected of me and travel distance.   

I graduated from Connecticut College in New London, CT where I received a history major, a psychology minor, and received my secondary education certificate (I am certified to teach grades 7-12 social studies.)  After college, I taught at a middle school for two years and then went to Columbia University to get my masters in social work. 

I have experience nannying for a family in Ridgefield for two ten year old twin girls and a thirteen year old boy.  I was responsible for homework help, light housekeeping, transportation to afterschool activities, simple cooking, discipline, and keeping the girls entertained. Please see their review for me!!

For one and half years I babysat for a 5 year old girl in Ridgefield, CT.  She was very active and we enjoyed coloring, playing outside, going on a trips to museums and parks, arts and crafts, etc. I am not the type to sit and text or watch TV while the child I am watching entertains him or herself. 

People who know me would describe me as responsible, ambitious, creative, and compassionate.  I have a lot of experience working with children of many ages and within many capacities.  Since I am a certified teacher, my babysitting services come with free tutoring!  When it comes to my child care philosophies, I believe in structure but also plenty of play time and love and attention.   I realize that many parents have their own methods so I believe in taking time to sit down and talk about your preferences beforehand.

Rebecca took care of my three kids, aged 10, 10 and 14 for the past 4 months. Above all, I felt like I could always trust Rebecca to keep my kids safe and to handle whatever situation came her way. I was not around alot and it was a fairly demanding job since my kids had lots of activities and they weren't always easy to handle! But, Rebecca always did a fabulous job. She is highly responsible, organized, confident and has great child care skills. Her teaching background helped in giving the kids the structure they needed. My kids were sad to see her leave. She also always left my house tidy, which I really appreciated. I would recommend Rebecca without hesitation!
