Amanda’s Bio

Hi, thank you for looking at my profile.

My name is Amanda, and I hold a degree in health education and am currently available for a part time job. (1-2 days/week) Unfortunately, my 3 little ones have outgrown me and are off to preschool!

I have been nannying and sitting for years, am a member of a nanny association, and am CPR/first aid certified. I attend annual nanny conferences to learn new methods and information.

A little about me: I've been with children ever since I was age 11 or 12. I attended a children hospital's "Safe Sitter" program and started watching neighborhood kids. Over the years, I helped raise children from infancy past grade school. I've been with many families and have many references. I have experience with multiple children, premature infants, multiples, developmental disabilities, and even live-in nannying. Most of my experience is with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, but I also have experience with school-aged children and "tweens."

I enjoy starting with families while the children are little so I can watch them grow, but I also love joining established, loving families. I love to create and play with children, and reading is a must. I love spending days at home as well as coordinating fun outings like storytime at the library or trips to the zoo or pumpkin patch. I like to engage the kids in all kinds of age-appropriate experiences. I love hands-on play and fun physical activities as well as crafts and "still" activities. I will not sit your child/ren in front of the television all day!

I am looking for a long-term family. I am reliable and dedicated and will try to work with you, especially in unique situations. I can provide reliable, safe transportation and am experienced in elementary school tutoring as well. I love to nanny and babysit or just come have fun while mom/dad get a break. I look forward to meeting your family!

Amanda was a wonderful sitter for infant daughter. She was very reliable, always showing up on the days she promised and ALWAYS showing up on time. I had to let Amanda go because my husband was recently laid off from his job, but hope to call her back soon!

Amanda is an absolute joy to our family. She is fabulous with our infant and toddler girls. She is always punctual, fun and engaging with our children. She has become a valuable member of our household and we are thrilled to have found her! Our 2 1/2 year old looks forward to seeing her each week and even asks my husband and I to go to work so that she can play with Ms. Amanda! I highly recommend Amanda!

Amanda is WONDERFUL! I can't possibly say enough positive things about her. She's always punctual and she's wonderful with my 13 month old. In a world where sitters can often let us down, Amanda shines as an example of someone truly dedicated to children.

Amanda has been amazing - my daughter loves her. Amanda is truly a part of the family. She is experienced, responsible, reliable and warm - a joy to be around and to work with. I trust her completely with my 18 month old daughter and know that when Amanda is with her she is in great hands. I would recommend her to anyone!

Amanda has been a regular babysitter with our family for two years. She is consistent, reliable, timely, fun and warm with our boys. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a "professional" sitter/nanny. She is great with babies and toddlers, knows a lot about different stages and the needs of young children. I never worry when we leave the house, I know that everything will be taken care of. It has been great working with her and my sons enjoy having her around!

We absolutely love having Amanda as our sitter! She does such a great job with our 2 year old daughter. Marie loves it when Amanda comes to visit, and they always end up having a great time. Very responsible, and reliable. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a caring, fun and responsible sitter! Thanks so much Amanda!

Amanda was a fantastic babysitter for our family. She is very responsible, caring, fun, and energetic and treated our kids as though they were family. She was extremely helpful to us during my maternity leave by entertaining our 2 year old daughter while we adjusted to life with our new baby. She always had activities planned and even helped with household tasks without being asked. Amanda had no trouble juggling both kids when I went back to work. She was an asset to our family when we recently decided to move out of state and had little time to pack. She will be missed by our family and we highly recommend her as a sitter!

Great sitter

Amanda was a great sitter for our two girls. 4& 10 months old. They felt very comfortable with her. She is very professional & great at following a schedule. We unfortunately had to move but I shared her info with lots of my friends. She's very trustworthy.
