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 full time nanny for a 5 month old baby boy. 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 am a substitute teacher sometimes at the Montessori School of Northern Virginia, as well. 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.

Karin was wonderful. She was on time and responsive when I called. My daughter has been a little difficult as of late and she rolled with the punches, got the kids fed and put them down with ease. Would happily use her again.

Karin was wonderful handling our four kids all under 5! She was prompt and asked questions when she arrived to make sure she knew the expectations. We booked this day of when we needed a last minute sitter and I was pleasantly surprised with the entire service and Karin. Two thumbs up!

I'd have Karin back to sit in a heartbeat. She was right on time, the kids had fun, and an easy bedtime. Very happy parents.

Karin was awesome! We had a brief over the phone introduction and I sent her an email outlining my children's Saturday night routine which includes dinner, board games, arts and crafts, book reading. She did a fantastic job of keeping with our no screen time rule and keeping the kids entertained! She was very nice, easy going and appeared happy. Highly recommend!

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.

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 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 is fabulous! She has been a nanny for my son since he was 2 months old. He was not an easy baby and she handled it beautifully. It is obvious that she loves children and is incredibly kind and patient. She is ALWAYS on time and is mature beyond her years. It has been a pleasure to have Karen as a nanny.

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 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.
