Marie’s Bio

Hi! My Name is Marie. I have seventeen years babysitting experience, and am thirty years old. I love taking care of children of all ages and interacting with them, assisting them with using their manners, and also love helping school-age children with homework. In addition I also truly love caring for infants, as it is amazing to watch how their personalities expand on a daily basis! I have extensive training in the recognition, as well as treatment of life threatening injuries and illnesses in infants, children, and adults.

I have wonderful references to give during an interview. I do not post my references on the internet because I would prefer to not have them receiving lots of phone calls before I even meet a family as a courtesy to them as it became problematic before. I am able to bring all certifications with me during an interview, and will also provide my references' contact information. I also have current clear background checks from the FBI (with fingerprints) and the state of Pennsylvania, and have passed the requirements of Pennsylvania to obtain a child abuse history clearance in order to be approved to work around children in a school setting.


As far as discipline in a caregiver capacity goes I believe in time-outs, or time-outs for toys. I also strongly believe in positive reinforcement (sticker chart with prize at end of week, pick of dinner or activity etc) I like to try and mimic the parents' way of doing things as best as possible to keep structure in childrens lives, and also try and cater to the activities the specific child likes most (after any room-cleaning/homework if any they’re required to do is done).

I currently have my ground medic (EMT-I) certification as well as a Sport Safety Certification, which is more focused on orthopedic type injuries.I also have recieved advanced ITLS (International Trauma Life Support certification), as well as PALS certification (Pediatric Advanced Life Support), and ACLS certification (Advanced Cardiac Life Support). I am also CPR for the healthcare provider certified for all age groups.

I have a four year old son in pre-k and am currently a stay at home mom. I am highly involved in my sons school as a teacher aide as the school needs. I am currently looking for occasional date night and weekend sitting positions where my son will stay home with my husband during for daddy/son time.

I accept cash, credit cards via the square app, and also accept checks after day one.

Marie is so good with our daughter. She's responsible and friendly and always on time (if not early!). I highly recommend her!

Marie is the best sitter you could hope for! She has babysat for my infant daughter since she was only a few weeks old. Marie is always on time (early, actually!), always has a smile on her face and is very easy-going. Even though my daughter has limited needs right now (bottles and diapers, mostly), I have been extremely pleased with the tender care Marie has provided her. Marie is extremely bright and trustworthy. On top of that, she has a friendly personality and a good sense of humor that makes her a great fit for my family. You can't ask for a better sitter than her--five stars aren't enough! Make that 100!!

Marie sat for us one Sunday evening. She was on time and very professional. She even took this job on short notice after working all day. She's a keeper!

thanks much for the review :)

Marie sat for our "older" kids, 9 and 12, last night. She was punctual, responsible, and great with the kids- they loved her! We will definitely call again!

I'd have to agree that 5 stars aren't enough. Marie is always on time and is extremely caring with our children. She constantly thinks on her feet and needs very little direction.

Marie was excellent, my son warmed up to her right away, we were very comfortable with her and she was very friendly and relaxed.

Marie seemed like a great match for our family but unfortunately we never got to meet her since she didn't show up for our scheduled appointment. I see now it could be due to her injury, but a phone call/email would've been appreciated.

- Heather M.

Provider's Response

Hello, I am sorry we did not meet for the scheduled meeting. We had set a date but I never got the address from you that was supposed to be sent, so I assumed that that date did not work for you, and was extremely busy with the injury.

Sorry again!

About 18 months ago, Marie watched my infant daughter during the day while I job-hunted and ran errands. We were very pleased with her service and she sat for us a couple times on evenings and weekends after that. We think she's fabulous and would like to have her help us again with our second daughter.

Very polite, attentive, and great with my children.

Thanks so much for your review! The chillens were awesome to hang out with and were very good at listening to what I said :)

Marie came over during the afternoon while I had a doctor's appointment and was here with the boys for 2 hours. She played with them and fed them some pizza for dinner. They both were having a great time with her when I got home and my oldest son (5.5 years old) said he wished she could have stayed longer cause he was having so much fun with her :) We'll certainly keep her contact info for the next time we need a sitter!!

- Janet S.

Provider's Response

Aww thanks so much!!!!! both kiddos were a lot of fun and got along well together :)

Marie,
Mariah has asked for you to come back! This is high praise from a child who doesn't generally like people she hasn't met before! I hope you'll consider watching the whole gang for me occasionally. Best wishes, Kristen V.
