Michelle’s Bio

I am VERY passionate about quality care for young children. Since my teen years. My education includes Degree in Child Development,2 Nanny Certifications, Early Brain Research Certificate of Training, and current CPR/First-aid certified. I am NOT your "typical" sitter in that I will be doing NO actual sitting. Normally I come prepared with my bag filled with fun that includes : art material, books, puppets, games, puzzles and MORE ! If you are seeking a mature, experienced, loving, and fun caregiver for your child than you NEED to give me a call.

Michele is one of the BEST sitters I've ever had. She is very attentive and patient with the children. They love her! I have a 9yr old boy and 7yr old girl. They think Michele hung the moon :-) She plays games with them and brings trinkets as prizes. She also tidies up the house and cleans whatever messes are left behind. That is super!
She is well qualified, very confident in her job and always a very pleasant person. She is always the FIRST one I contact when looking for a sitter.

Michelle has been babysitting for my 1 year old daughter and 2 year old son for the last 6 months on almost a weekly basis. Michelle is an excellent caregiver who spends high quality time with my children reading, doing art projects, playing pretend, etc. She is also a good communicator who gives me feedback on how their time was spent. Importantly, she is tidy, reliable and punctual. I highly recommend Michelle.

We really enjoyed having Michele take care of our son. She is such an amazing person. The time she spent nurturing and teaching our son to help him grow. My son enjoyed the singing, variety of developmental toys, walks and puppets. I wsh we could have continued with Michele, but unfortunately we are moving out of the Irving area. I would highly recommend Michele for any position. If you are looking for a DEPENDABLE, LOVEABLE, & CARING babysitter or nanny, Michele would be your best choice. Thank you for everything Michele.

We were swinging through Dallas on our band tour, and had to find a babysitter…. fast… for our 14month old daughter. Thus, we didn't have time to meet any applicants in advance, and saw Michelle's post. She quickly replied to our job post, and seemed to have the foresight of what a 14month old would like - offering to bring various toys, games and materials to play with. We put our trust in Michele, and she put a lot of effort into caring for our little angel. Michele is very responsible and put great care into our daughter's experience. Thank you!

Quality Care

We loved having Michelle watch our boys! She was very thorough with lots of great questions that made us feel very comfortable leaving our children in her care. When we came home, everyone was happy and well looked after! We were very happy with her services.

Wonderful Michelle

I just travelled to Dallas for work and needed a babysitter at the last minute for our 6 month old son and I am so grateful to have met Michelle! She agreed to help us out with only 2 days notice, she was prompt, super prepared and very proactive with questions and taking notes. She was communicative with me throughout the day and I arrived back to not only a peacefully sleeping baby, but to all of his clothes, food, diapers and toys organized which was a huge help and beyond what I had hoped for. I cannot recommend her highly enough and I will call her immediately on my next trip to Dallas.

Date Night Accomplished!

Michelle did a great job handling our children with an significant age gap. We were able to go on our date and return to happy kids. We have a 8 month old and 9 year old. Only issue we had was MY failure to give better clarification on bed time instructions for the older child. Michelle did exactly what we asked of her and did it very well. Our 9 month old can be difficult around new faces and there were no tears which helped my wife enjoy our date.

Last minute cancellation

I NEVER write reviews, but after hiring Michele for all of her glowing reviews, I think this is necessary. Had someone written a review of what had happen to me, I would have never hired her.

I hired Michele for two dates to watch my newborn. The first was a quick stay just to see if she would workout in a few weeks when we needed her much longer for my cousins wedding. The first round went great. While she was still here I confirmed for the second date and she agreed.

A week before the wedding I confirmed with her again. The day of the wedding I texted her two hours before with some special instructions and received no answer. 45 minutes before I texted again making sure she was still coming. She responded with “I’m really not feeling well as I have had a severe migraine all day”. She very well could’ve had a migraine, but why would I have to pry that answer out of her 45 minutes before she was supposed to be at our house. After I told her that was unfortunate for us since it was my cousins wedding, she did still offer to come. I however chose to not have her come.

I am only writing this to warn other parents as I would have never hired her if I would’ve known this.

Provider's Response

It was truly unfortunate that my sickness did get progressively as the day went. I remained professional by not cancelling. In life there are circumstances that are simply out of our control. When I accept a position I do it it very seriously
