Meet Gretchen

  • Speaks Sign Language
  • Comfortable with pets

Hi there! Let me start off by saying that I love children and the joy they bring into the world. I am a responsible and trustworthy nanny/babysitter with many years of experience who loves to explore the world through your child's eyes. I actively cultivate a happy, healthy relationship with the children I babysit for. It is of utmost importance to me as a caretaker to make sure that the little ones have fun, use their imaginations, expel energy (so that when Mom and Dad come home, they'll have had a full day of playing!), and are always safe and taken care of. I have been a nanny/babysitter for children of all ages, from newborns to 11 year olds and also have experience working with children with autism and aspergers. I am also fluent in American Sign Language. I've lived in NYC for five years and have babysat steadily for Read more three of those years. Before moving here, I babysat for families in Chicago and St. Louis. For over a year, I was a regular nanny to two adorable boys and also babysit frequently for families whose children love spending time with me. I'd love to meet you and your family! Thank you, Lindsay
