Cara’s Bio

I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old. I absolutely adore children and am very comfortable watching families with multiple children. I try and work very closely with the parents to gain and understanding of how you want your children looked after. I am here to help you raise your children and will do what you want and deem fit.  I do work a full-time job at a well known Healthcare leader in lower Westchester.

First off, this review is based off Cara's behavior during the hiring process since she never babysat for us. Everything seemed great with Cara, she had a great application, responded quickly, and had a wonderful interview. Afterwards, she said she had a good time meeting us, and gave us a list of references as requested. After we requested a background check and called her references, we offered her the position. I emailed her directly through her personal email (as a reply, so I know it was a working email address) and never received a reply. A few days later, we sent another email but we never heard from Cara again. If she didn't want the position or was no longer available, she should have had the professional courtesy to tell us, instead of delaying our hiring process and keeping us from hiring the right person. I don't know if she had a problem with us checking her references, but she seemed very interested in the job up to that point. But based on our experience, please be warned, she may be flaky and unreliable.

Provider's Response

I politely turned down the job with Meredith via personal email as she said. One of my references that she called told me that something just seemed a bit off. Out of safety for myself as we did interview in a public place I thought it was best for me to turn down the job. I'm sorry that she did not receive the email but I do have a copy. I hope you were able to find someone suitable for your sitting needs.

Cara is the most wonderful and caring sitter I have ever met. She was my sitter for 2 years in Florida. My son adores her and we consider her a part of our family. The relationship that she made with my son was wonderful. I trusted her 100% with my son.
It was sad to lose her back to New York. I still haven't found a replacement that was as good as she was. We love Cara!
