Caroline (tolly)’s Bio

I am a freelance writer and occasional actress who moved from Baltimore to Manhattan in the Fall of 2009.  I have worked as a part-time nanny for two different familes and I am currently an occasional date night sitter for several families.
I originally became interested in childcare when I started working as a counselor at Young People's Summer Stock Camp (YPSS) when I was 15 years old.  I really enjoying organizing activities and games and loved working with children.  I worked at YPSS the following year as an over-night counselor and also co-taught several acting related classes for children ages 9 to 12.  I then spent two summers with St. Paul's School's Day Camp, where I was responsible for nearly twenty 6 year olds.  Since moving to New York over six years ago I have been babysitting consistently.
I love going outside and playing games, but I'm also a huge fan of board games and arts and crafts projects.  I think that I am personally best with young children and toddlers, but I have always enjoyed my experiences with kids ages 9-12.  I am also very comfortable with big groups.
 
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this!

Tolly regularly watches our 3 yo during the day. He absolutely adores her. It is obvious from the things that he says that she plays with him extensively and that she is pretend playing with him. She occassionally watches our 6 yo along with the 3 yo. Both kids like her a lot.

Tolly is very responsible. She is punctual. She is quick to let us know about scheduling conflicts and is very flexible.

I highly recommend her (and have to my friends).

Tolly is amazing! What a find-she has babysat my 2 kids-ages 3 and 7 2x in the last week. She plays games, reads and role plays (including dress-up) with them non-stop. My 7 year old keeps asking when I'm leaving again. She was punctual, polite and pleasure to hire. i would highly recommend her to any parent-but hope that she won't become unavailable if too many people find out how great she is with kids!

Tolly is just great. She watched my 2-year old son, and occasionally my 5-year old daughter as well. They had such fun playing, singing, creating games and using their imaginations. She never turned the TV on and truly has an impressive amount of energy. I would highly recommend her!

Tolly sat for us while we were in town for the holiday and we found her to be super nice, responsive and attentive. It worked out perfectly and we highly recommend her.

Tolly is very professional, attentive and fun. She was great with our toddler and kept him entertained and engaged during her stays with him. She was responsive to any ideas or requests we had and was just a nice person to be around. We would hire her again in the future. Thanks for all your help, Tolly!
