I have been babysitting infants to middle school age children for approximately 18 years. I started baby-sitting at the age of 13. My experience includes: babysitting for a family of four boys from infant to 15 years of age for 3 summers in college. My third summer I watched a 6-month-old and 5-year-old along with their two older brothers three to four days a week. I ended my nanny job with this family due to graduating college and getting a job at Lutheran Family Services of Virginia. I love kids and love baby-sitting! I grew up baby-sitting my small cousins and spent a month in Atlanta with my Aunt and her four kids as a live in nanny during a summer college break. I am very passionate about kids, and know they need special care and attention! In 2014 I completed Graduate school at a College for my Masters Read more in Health Advocacy in New York. Moved back to VA about 2 years ago and work as a oncology Social Worker and take care of my 5 1/2 year old son. I am currently interested in babysitting for families occasionally on weekends--date nights, etc. I have my son every other week ( with his dad on the other weeks) so I am available every other weekend. I love children, very energetic, cheerful, organized, loving, and just plain fun. If you would like to contact me further please e-mail me on sittercity.com or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks! I will provide references upon request.

As a working mom of 3 busy elementary school aged boys I have had a lot of experience with various babysitters over the years. A good babysitter is often hard to find. I was very pleased with Megan's work. She is mature, responsible and reliable. She was always on-time to get the kids and made sure they did their homework. She is very professional and genuinely likes kids. My boys really liked her. She has a positive attitude and was willing to pitch in around the house. She was also very patient in difficult situations when they came up. We had a very good experience with her caring for the boys. We have opted to get a live-in au pair now and that is the only reason why Megan will not continue working with us. Otherwise, I would have hired her permanently.
