Marygrace’s Bio

Growing up in a small town in Rhode Island, there were always opportunities to babysit and help out with children. With nearby cousins, family friends, tourists in town for the summer, and other connections, there was always a need for help! I began assisting my aunts as a "mother's helper" when I was young and my cousins were newborns. I enjoyed this time, and learned a lot about childcare early on. Since then I've cared for countless children of various ages and personalities from many different families, and have had a lot of fun :)

I enjoy spending time with children, as they have a light, a hope, and a joy that I find contagious and uplifting, even on their not-so-good days! As I've grown a little older, I appreciate spending time with them even more. I know the care and tenderness their sensitive hearts long for, and I love to make each child I know feel special and unique. Some of the things I like to do as a babysitter include: read books, do arts and crafts, go for walks or play at the park, go sledding, play pretend, bake cookies, and much more. I always want my presence to be a positive one, and I want them to feel safe and happy with me as their babysitter.

I can certainly appreciate if a family asks for no television or technology usage during care hours. I also, however, know the fun children can have watching a special movie or TV show, or playing a game on the computer. The request of the parents in this department will be completely respected and observed. The same is true for any rules or guidelines for corrective action taken when children aren't on their best behavior. The more I know about your style of parenting and how you like to handle certain situations, the more I can adhere to what you're looking for in a babysitter! I think this type of consistency is helpful for children.

I am currently employed full-time but am looking for new opportunities for the next several months (from January until the middle-end of May) to work as a nanny/babysitter. Both full-time and part-time positions are on my radar. I request between $14 and $20 per hour, depending on the number of children, distance from home, duties involved (ex: light housework, driving to activities), and other such factors.

Please contact me if you'd like to find out more about my experience with babysitting, get to know my personality and philosophies about childcare, and tell me more about the help you are looking for.

Thanks and take care!

MaryGrace
