Hi! I have been working with children for 13 years. I have a Bachelors degree in Legal Studies from the University of Massachusetts Amherst . I currently work Full Time as a Summer Camp/After school director at an elementary school in Brooklyn (I am only available to work nights and weekends- I am not available for after school pick up). I am fully vaccinated. I have worked as a Camp Counselor, Little Gym Instructor, Preschool teacher and baby sitter. I love engaging and working with children of all ages. I enjoy games, reading, crafts and cooking. I am huge fan of incorporating learning into everyday activities. Simple things like meal prep can be a great way to teach children about math and portion control. For smaller children cleaning up toys can help with counting, colors and shapes. I have always been an athlete and love sports and physical activity. I Read more am firm believer that sports and teamwork help build confidence and social skills. Safety is always my number one concern and priority. I am an ASHI certified CPR and First Aid Trainer and I am responsible for teaching staff to safely care for and supervise children. I genuinely enjoy what I do and would love the opportunity to meet you and your family.

Samantha was wonderful with our toddler. He liked her right away and they played really nicely together. She was on time, communicative, and friendly. We will definitely work with Samantha again!

Samantha was absolutely wonderful! She was punctual, engaging with the kids, flexible when we needed her to stay longer and lovely to be around. We highly recommend her and look forward to having her over again!

Words can't express how grateful I am for having Samantha babysit my daughter yesterday. My daughter was so happy with her that first this morning the first thing she asked is when she is coming back again and that she loved playing with her toys and talking to specially during these unfortunate times when she is not able to see all her friends. That meant so much to me and made my day, for my experienced she is really an amazing sitter! and we can't wait to book again.

Samatha was great! She came on time and immediately my 1 y/o and 3y/o girls warmed up to her. She checked in periodically while we were out, fed the girls and cleaned up everything before we were home. The whole experience was stress free. The girls, my husband and I are looking forward to her next visit!

Nice and patient with my 7year old son. Very punctual considering it was very early in the morning Assisted with homework and surpassed my expectations with out me even explaining to her what had to be done. Very well versed with zoom remote learning! Will definitely call her back when needed. Most of all my son asked for her the next day.

I hired Samantha last minute and she was available the very next morning! She came early 7:15am and did zoom with my 7yr old for remote learning and helped him with math homework. I will being using her again. Definitely recommend her as in someone to trust and get the job done!

Samantha was on time, sweet with our son (who was overtired and not in his best form!) and very capable. She read to, bathed and prepared our son for bed. She kept us updated (when he went to sleep) and was accommodating when we were running late. Highly recommend!

Samantha was great! She showed up on time and seemed to be very comfortable with our twin infant girls. She wasn't bothered by our dog who can be a little needy. When we got home, the girls were asleep and everything was in good shape!

Samantha was great - she arrived a couple minutes early and was very sweet with our almost-two-year-old before we put her down for bed. Samantha was flexible when we texted her to let her know that we would be coming home later than originally planned. We would definitely ask her to babysit again!

Samantha was very sweet, and extremely flexible with our scheduling. Unfortunately, our six month old daughter slept the entirety of Samantha's visit so they didn't have a chance to interact. We will definitely book Samantha again, so I'm certain she and our daughter will have plenty of time to become fast friends!

Samantha was great with the kids and so understanding when our night took much longer than expected. She even left the house much cleaner than we left it!

Samantha was great! She arrived on time, made dinner for our 1 year old daughter (and got her to eat it!), and got her through the bedtime routine with no trouble. She checked in and sent us a picture of our daughter eating, which was very nice. Would definitely book her again!

Samantha was a fabulous sitter with our 4 year old and 1 year old from the moment she walked in the door! Got both our kids through their bedtime routines and into bed and then sent us adorable text pictures during our date to put our minds at ease. Would definitely book again!

We felt instantly at ease leaving our 1 year old with Samantha. She was sweet and warm, and not at all phased by an unhappy baby as we left. She sent us updates through the night.

Samantha was very warm, interactive and sweet with us and our infant. She gave us a mid-evening update and was very helpful and communicative. She helped our little one through his evening routine, he was fast asleep when we got home, and was happy the next morning. We would happily recommend Samantha and hope to hire her to babysit again!
