Opal’s Bio

I am a loving child care professional with over 20 years of professional child care experience. I recognize the individuality of children, and attempt to create an environment that fosters their trust, self esteem, and independence. Realizing the various stages of child development, I work cooperatively with the family to engage their children in positive and constructive activities. I provide the type care that I myself would want for my children, playing with them, and giving them encouragement and guidance as they discover the world around them. Along with my 20 years of professional experience, I can also offer you: * An Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education * A Certificate in Basic Child Care * A Certificate in Infant & Toddler * A Certificate in Child Care Administration * CPR & First Aid * SIDS Training * Child Care Credentials 1 & 2 * A TB test and Physical Examination * Certification in Massage Therapy * A Background Check * Excellent References
  I also have lots of other various documented child care related training, and am a member of the (INA) International Nanny Association. I can provide a portfolio documenting my experience, education, training, and also provide excellent references. I am very affectionate, nurturing, and absolutely confident that I can create a loving environment for your children to learn and grow in.  Thank you so much for your consideration!

My girls and I have known Opal for more than 6 months. I have used her to watch my 2 girls, ages 5 and 3 numerous times. She is great with the girls. She keeps them entertained and I have no worries while I'm away. She is also great with keeping up the house. Coming home after work, or a night out I am able to relax. I would reccomend her to anyone.

Opal, Did a wonderful job for our 2 boys. One is 2 years old and the other is 4 months old. She showed up with her professional attitude and was great with both our boys. We used her when we needed to be out till about midnight. She read, played and fed both our boys, and got them to bed in the regular bedtime. She did a wonderful job and would use her again when needed. Please send her a quick note and meet her in person this is why we chose her.

professional, punctual, and warm

Opal was very professional. Warm, and punctual, and we were very happy with her services. She watched Our 3 months old baby girl on our date night. She was very flexible and patient when we came home later than we thought.

We highly recommend her.

Warm, Energetic, & Engaged

Opal was wonderful and an instant hit with our very active 3 year old boy. She is warm, energetic, and engaged. She was the perfect balance between playmate and parent with our little one, who said "yes" when asked if he wanted Miss Opal to come over again. She even sent us a couple of quick texts to update us on their activities and when he fell asleep. I definitely recommend her for your babysitting needs!

Babysitter Review

Both my husband and I are happy to say we have found our new favorite babysitter for our sweet 6 month old baby girl. During our initial interview Opal was very professional, and she takes what she does very seriously. When watching my daughter she had great communication, thoroughly updated me on what happened while I was away, and left me with nothing to worry about while in her care. Opal has a very warm and loving personality. She is definitely a breath of fresh air in regards to childcare. Highly recommended!

Absolutely fantastic. Sweet, caring, thoughtful, and professional

My husband and I found Opal to be extremely warm, caring, and professional. Upon meeting her, she arrived with a binder full of references and credentials. She has been wonderful with our 11 month old son. Opal gets on the ground to play with him, is extremely attentive, and is goes out of her way to customize her care to the needs of our child. She is knowledgeable and an expert at what she does, and she was a natural with our dog as well. I would not hesitate to recommend Opal or use her services again.
