Alexandra’s Bio

Dear parents,
Let’s face it, being a parent is a 24/7 job and sometimes you just need a break! However, when you go on a date night, self-care appointment or just running errands, you want to make sure that you leave your precious children in the hands of a playful, engaging, safe and trusting caregiver. That’s where I come in :)
I am a professional playsitter who brings activities so that I can provide your children with individualized attention and enriched experiences so they can reach their own full potential and developmental milestones.
Activities focus on helping children progress in communication, gross and fine motor skills, cognitive, social, emotional and self-help development.

Allie was amazing with our two girls. She arrived on time, asked all the right questions, and showed a gentle, but not push over, personality with the girls. We asked Allie to babysit again, after her first time! Our family definitely recommends Allie for your children!

My son warmed up to her right away -- who wouldn't when you bring 3 HUGE bags of toys & crafts to investigate?!?! I was nervous about finding a sitter away from home and at a hotel, but Ali and all of her references made me feel very comfortable about my original gut-feeling to hire Ali. I was pleased to come back to two beautiful paintings, and I was thrilled to learn that my son can trace his letters -- a skill I had not done with him yet. Ali is more than a sitter, she is a perfect TEACHER for my 3-year-old!
