Chris’s Bio

My name is Chris
I am looking for an occasional babysitting  job. I am a very helpful, calm, sympathetic and considerate nanny. I have always liked to help people and specially children. My interest in caring for children started when I was only 16 years old and I had my first nanny experience. After graduating from college, I decided to move to the U.S. in 2007, and I have been a nanny since then. My first nanny position in the U.S. lasted for 2 years, where I cared for three children, ages 4-years-old (girl) and her twin siblings (boy and girl - 2 months old). The second family which I worked for over a year, I cared for twins (4 months old boys), and I'm currently caring for a 8 and 11-year-old boys since January of this year. I have built such wonderful relationships with all the families and in special the children that I worked for. They all know me very well for always being a responsible, organized, caring and honest person. As part of my job as a nanny you can expect me to help your kids with their homework, reading, little projects, arranging play-dates and activities to entertain them. I have a driver's license and my own car. Rates are negotiable, but based on hours committed, number of children and chores involved. Do not hesitate to contact me if this sounds like a good fit for your family. I'm looking forward to hearing from you, so we can talk further and arrange to meet. References will be provided upon request. Thanks Chris.

Chris is an absolute GEM!!! She is beyond wonderful with my 2 1/2 year son and has bailed me out last minute on numerous occasions. She has such a genuine heart that you can see from the first time you meet her. I would highly recommend her!!!

Chris is a wonderful, caring, and very sweet person. She is our current nanny to our twin boys. Even though they are still babies, she is very engaging and interactive with them.

Responded to my post agreeing to babysit and 24 hours prior never responded leaving me without a sitter.
Normally I have a great experience with this site but this was very dissappointing.

Provider's Response

Hi Margaret B.

I would like to talk to you about the comment you left on my profile. We spoke about the job position on friday night and I asked you more information about what time the bsit would end and you told me that it was something you didn't know.
You had the whole saturday to contact me and you didn't even send me anything about it. You also said that I left you without bsit on sunday, but we didn't even fisnished to talk about the details as address and hourly rate, so how could I have had left you without something that I didn't even know where to go?
Normally I have an answer before I agree with something.
So I don't know why you are so disappointed if you didn't even tell me where to go.

My husband and I have no complaints at all with Chris! Thus far, she has been an exceptional sitter for us and has been able to sit for us 3 times now. She has a very pleasant demeanor and immediately was able to interact with my son at his level; keeping him busy . Being from a small town with tons of family to help out, I wasn't too sure if this was a good idea and felt extremely nervous. I am very happy however that we gave it a shot. She has been able to assist on short notice. At my request, she keeps in contact with me via text throughout the time, and even more importantly, my son is very happy with her and has repeatedly asked when she will be sitting again. This by far makes me feel comfortable and safe. Needless to say, I would recommend her to others!

Talked to Chris on the phone about a specific date and time. She agreed. Sent her a message on sittercity with the address. Didn't hear back. Sent her a text and she said she had booked something else. Very disappointing.

Chris is a joy to work with -- she's reliable, punctual, flexible, and great with kids! She has watched my 13-month-old twice now, and I felt very confident that my baby was in excellent hands. Chris was delighted to take the baby to the park, and she stuck to her schedule with napping, feeding, etc. I highly recommend her!
