My career has been in home based education and supporting new parents with postpartum Doula care. I have worked for private families, with their newborns and kids as a sitter, nanny and tutor. I have my BA and I value learning for its own sake. Children In my care are encouraged to explore everything that grabs their curiosity, creativity and logic. Reading, story telling, singing and art are a few activities that I structure into the day. I love newborns and infants! Ask me anything, let's talk about what matters most to you when you think about how well you want your baby/kids engaged. I appreciate Montessori and hands on learning when planning activities to do with younger children. Incorporating reading, art and music is important. Your child’s sitter can be fun, engaging and keep them active and learning. I am known for being TV/Screen Free! I am focused on Read more your baby and kids 100%. No matter their age or stage of development, we will have fun while always discovering new things with activities that are both age and developmentally appropriate for your children. Time for fun comes naturally and being responsive to kids is essential to me. Communication, listening to kids is important too. Children love me as I am honest with them and they come to count on me. Parents trust me to follow through and they appreciate my commitment to their families. Sick care and school closure days are as important and families value my attention, given to their children when parents cannot be with them. I have a few hobbies. I am an avid reader and I crochet, I enjoy house concerts and community events. I volunteer with local non profits and I donate hats that I make for charity. I hope this gives you an idea of who I am and what I can bring to your family. Additional references available on request. I have had both Covid vaccines. Sadly, I am allergic to cats.

Sheva is an amazing baby sitter. She has abundant knowledge on child development and other areas . Pointed me to right resources. She dedicated her time and came up with best solutions for my questions like my kid sleep issues and other concerns. She is a caring person and treated my kid as if he is her own and bought all the necessary stuff for him. She is even brought all the toys and books for him. I would highly recommend her.

She is an amazing baby sitter. She has abundance knowledge on early child development and other areas. She dedicated her time and did her research and came up with best solutions for all my questions regarding my baby sleep issues and other concerns. She is such a caring person and treated my kid as if he is her own and bought all the stuff which is required for him. She is even brought all the toys and books for him. I would highly recommend her.

We cannot recommend Sheva enough. As new parents, we wanted to find someone who we could trust to both keep our child physically safe and actively engage him throughout the day. Sheva has exceeded all expectations. Sheva has been a huge blessing to our family. She effortlessly ticks all the boxes that one would expect in a great babysitter. She is dependable, flexible, trustworthy, knowledgeable, engaged, sensitive, and punctual. You will suffer no nonsense if you work with Sheva. She takes her work very seriously and her deep passion for helping families and little ones grow makes her an outstanding caretaker and companion. Sheva will not mechanically clock in and clock out. She actively seeks opportunities and activities that will enrich her time with you and your child. She has a vast wealth of experiences, book recommendations, songs, activities, and toys that have made such a difference to both us and our little guy.

What you will notice right away in your first meeting with her is - Sheva is smart, well read, brutally honest and a truly caring and affectionate human being. Spend a couple of weeks with her and you are guaranteed to feel like she is a part of your family. She truly cares for you, your child and your entire family. I believe, whatever she does , comes out of her compassion for fellow parents and love for kids. She has great ideas, maintains a very good hygiene, is very knowledgeable about all things related to babies. She is a good critic and won't back off from giving you an honest opinion or advice when it comes to raising children. Nor your typical nanny, much more than that. She will turn to be a great friend, advisor and the go to person when you feel helpless. Highly recommended.

Sheva is warm, personable, trustworthy and thoughtful. She has loads of experience and knowledge about child development, and experience with babies to adolescents. She will not be the sitter who turns on the TV the minute you set foot out the door. My daughters were immediately at ease with her and she has a good understanding of a family's needs and wants what is best for them. Your children will be safe and loved in her care; I don't hesitate to recommend her!

Sheva is great! She is responsible, always very punctual, and best of all thinks of fun and age appropriate activities for the children she cares for. I feel very confident knowing that she is taking care of our two kiddos. You can tell that she really enjoys taking care of children and it is more than just a job for her. We look forward to her babysitting more for our family!

Our 17 month old daughter instantly took to Miss Sheva. She was literally hypnotized by her hat. Our first visit left us with a warm impression and a good feeling. I'm looking forward to many more sessions - with no television - something important to us. I get the feeling that Zoë will be stimulated and comfortable with her.

Sheva stays with my 10-year-old daughter on a regualr basis, and we have only good things to say about her. Sheva had a huge personality, is outgoing, fun, creative and dependable. She is very engaged with Chloe during her time here, making it her mission to get to know her and form a solid relationship with her. I reccomend Sheva highly (and Chloe does too).

Sheva is a delightful, and funny individual with many wonderful talents and unique qualities. We still keep up from time to time even though we no longer need her as a nanny. She is VERY reliable, and works hard to create a bond with the children. She goes beyond just a babysitter, and extends the relationship into care, friendship, and love. Sheva will keep you laughing and always knows what to say to brighten your mood. I personally believe her talents are beyond the scope of childcare, but she LOVES caring for families, and this is why she makes the perfect addition to any home. Call me anytime at 512-300-1947 for more information.

Sheva is great!!! She has a lot of experience and really knows how to relate to children. I am an Early Chidhood Instructional Specicalist and was very impressed with her knowledge of developmentally appropriate activities for young children. My kids loved her frequently ask for her to come back.

I have had many conversations with Miss Sheva. She has shown to be very personable. I can not wait for my family to have our first experience with her. We are excited.
