Melissa’s Bio

Hi there!
Thanks for stopping by.  Well, where to start.  I've been babysitting since I was 12 years old and am now 32.  Through the years, I've come up with different activities that I like to use while babysitting...anything from puppet shows to Dora the Explorer games, to coloring contests. I moved here in January and have been looking for different families to sit for since then.  I work for the government, so am not around children that often in my 9-5 job. I was a CCD teacher when I lived in Boston and also sat regularly for two families, both who had twins under the age of 2 and another sibling (ironically both 3 years old).  I am CPR certified, have great references.  Hope to hear from you and your family soon!
PS-I love pets, too!

Melissa agreed to sit for my two children then never showed up for the job and never called to cancel. In addition, she did not return my call or email to give me any reason for not showing up or to tell me she was ok. I consider this sitter to be unreliable and unprofessional.

Provider's Response

I had called and left a message with this family, telling them that I would not be able to make it. I had a family emergency and needed to be there, however I did follow up.

Melissa took care of my 7-year-old and six-month-old children and did a wonderful job. My son was very anxious at my departure but she handled it gracefully and soon put him at ease. He had a lot of fun with her. She has some terrific ideas of fun things to do to entertain the children.

Melissa sat for my 3 children - ages 4, 6 and 8 and was fantastic. The kids loved her. She did a great job at keeping them entertained and safe. The kids had great stories about the way she engaged them in creative play. As a bonus, the house was completely cleaned up when I returned home. I will call on Melissa again.

Melissa canceled on us 5 hours before we needed to leave for a concert at Wolf Trap. Not enough time to get another sitter since everyone's already booked on a Saturday night. One of the most important qualities of a babysitter is reliability. I should have known from the other reviewer that she stood up.

Unreliable

Her message said to call her today, prior to a weekend job. We did so; but she said she scheduled something else b/c she hadn't heard from us. Don't waste your time...heed the other reviews: lousy track record re. reliability.
