Karin’s Bio

Hello! My name is Karin. I have an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Development and 7 years experience in child care. I love working with children, and am currently a part time nanny for a 5 year old boy and 2 year old girl. I frequently babysit during the evenings and I've also done some work during the summer months at a local day care taking care of toddlers in a group setting. I also substitute sometimes at the Montessori School of Northern Virginia.

As a nanny and day care employee, my job has included taking 3 to 5 kids on weekly field trips to the zoo, pool and museums, and teaching Spanish and simple French. I enjoy playing fun and enticing games with energetic kids and I am experienced in infant care. I am a responsible and trustworthy caregiver, while understanding and stimulating the needs of children.

We have used Karen as our babysitter many times over the last few years. She is warm, responsible and great with kids and pets. I would highly recommend Karen to care for your children or animals. She is a wonderful person who you can trust!

Karen babysat our 6 yr old and 6 month old daughters once.for the evening. She was prompt,courteous, and well-groomed, but more importanly took great care of our daughters while we were out for the evening.. Our six year old said she had great fun, and our infant appeared well cared for. I would recommend her immediately.

Karen was a great babysitter who I will use again and again. She is prompt, personable, and great with kids. I love the way she interacts with my toddler -- she gets down on the floor and has a great time. I highly recommend her!

Karen took care of our 3 dogs when we went on a cruise for a week. She left a detailed log of each of our dogs and even spent a few extra hours one night when one of our dogs seem himself. I'm very grateful for someone who cares about our dogs as much as we do and would not hesitate recommending her to others.

Karen has been our afternoon nanny for the last 2.5 years. She took care of our 2 boys - now 5 and 8. She is very responsible, patient and warm-hearted. She would play with them, take them to the park, and other various activities. She was also great with helping my 2nd grader with his homework. Occasionally, Karen also took care of our kids late in the evening. She would put them to bed and read them stories. I highly recommend Karen for any type of child care.

Karen was a regular (twice a week) babysitter for my infant daughter, and continues to sit for us in the evenings/ weekends. My daughter was three months old when Karen started, and she is always fantastic with her. My daughter cried quite a bit at separation at first and Karen worked to distract her with age-appropriate activities, like looking in mirrors and out the window. Karen was responsible and on-time.
