Janae’s Bio

I live in Alexandria (Del Ray). I am available for weekend and occasional weeknight babysitting positions with up to 3 children of any age, and I am comfortable working with large pets. I work full-time as a civilian engineer for the Navy in DC. I have an extensive background caring for children.

I love spending time with children and I understand how important it is to have a sitter who is reliable, on time, and who can impart the same structure and values as the child's parents. I love to have fun and take children outdoors to the park or on a stroll around the neighborhood. Does your child like going out for jogs in a stroller or on walks with the dog? Great, me too! After your child is asleep, or while they are doing their homework, I am more than happy to clean and I always leave a home cleaner than I found it. Need some help with grocery shopping? No problem, just leave a stroller and shopping list and we will get it done. 

I am happy to help you with your babysitting needs, including:
- In-home or in-hotel
- Play time/ art/ sports/ parks
- Bath time
- Cooking
- Cleaning and other chores
- Transporting to and from events and activities (I have my own car, 2010 VW Tiguan) Note: Child safety seat required by law if child is under 7 years of age in DC and VA, and for those under 8 in MD (car seat to be supplied by parent during use).
- Homework
- Pet walking and care
- TV-free/Computer-free childcare
- Beginners experience with baby sign language ASL

More about my babysitting: I grew up in boarding school in a dormitory, and started babysitting in high school for the young children of our "Dorm Moms." In addition to several years of babysitting during college in Atlanta, I have spent 2 in DC years caring for a few families that include 5 children ranging in age from a few weeks old to 5 years old.

More about me: I love to keep busy and active. See all of the things I'm doing at www.instagram.com/sunbytes. I am recently married. I love to learn. I attended an all-women's college called Agnes Scott College in Atlanta to study Psychology and Spanish before studying Engineering at Georgia Tech. I have a Master's degree from Naval Postgraduate School. I lived in DC for 5 years. We moved to VA when we bought a house. Now I bike to work every day. I love to collect hobbies, and keep busy with CrossFit, photography, and arts & crafts. My favorite food is custard from the Dairy Godmother in Del Ray. I have a bulldog.

Janae was fantastic! I had her watch my 16 month old on a holiday that my husband and I both had to work. The challenge was that I was going to work from home so she would have to distract my daughter. She did that without a problem. My daughter took to Janae right away - I didn't hear one cry the whole day. Janae gave her lunch, put her down for a nap and gave her a snack. She was enthusiastic and professional. We will have her back!

Janae is truly wonderful - professional, friendly, open and caring, with an obvious love of kids. During our phone interview, she asked all the right questions and showed a genuine interest in our 13-month old's likes and dislikes. Not only was this the first time we'd left him with anyone, but we were also in a different city and unfamiliar surroundings, which our son often finds unsettling. Janae managed the whole job with aplomb, getting him bathed and into bed (and asleep!) with no problems. She also kept us updated via text, which went a long way to calming any anxieties we had as 'first-timers'. We just wished we lived in DC so we could have Janae as our regular sitter :)

Highly recommend Janae. She was great with my 3 children. She was thoughtful enough to stop at the grocery store for us and purchase special milk needed for our baby and to leave our daughter a goodbye gift. She babysit for us while we were staying at a hotel in the area. Janae managed to find things to do to entertain the youngest and sent pictures to me while I was away as well as texts to let me know when the children were asleep. I would not hesitate to recommend Janae.
