Meet Octavia

Hello! My name is Octavia. I am a first year Masters student at VCU studying Social Work. I am currently available for a part time position, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I would prefer 6-8 hours a day. I am not just looking for a job but a family. I love meeting positive role models such as parents and meeting new families because I always take a little something back to my own. I am not a tv babysitter, I use screen time as an incentive when all things necessary are done. I believe in responsibilities no matter the age. I like to be active and get outside. I like a set schedule so children know what to expect. I make my own lesson plans and I know how to make learning fun. I am a fun babysitter but I am always firm. I have tons of experience with all Read more ages, reliable transportation and I also have my CPR/first aid certification. I have a few certificates from various social work trainings, such as teaching children emotional regulation and trauma-informed care. I have a clean background and an equally clean driving record. I am also willing to do whatever you need me to between babysitting. I can do light housekeeping, laundry, organize, errands, meal prep, whatever you may need. I'm patient, responsible and trustworthy with great references to prove it! I have a lot to offer and I have great references to prove it! Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to hearing from you!

If you need a last minute babysitter she is AWESOME! We needed a last minute babysitter and Octavia responded to us letting us know she was available. When she says she is last minute she truly means it. We contacted her late at night and when she asked when we needed her we responded with now would be great and she was there immediately. It was my son’s first time having a babysitter and when we left he didn’t cry or fuss. She also stayed late (3am) and was really pleasant. I am grateful to have found her as a babysitter and we are looking forward to using her again.
