Karin’s Bio

I'm 24 years old and I have extensive experience working with children of all needs and am outgoing and energetic! I'm reliable and will enjoy various activities such as playtime, arts and crafts or just watching a movie.
I've been babysitting since I was in middle school and have worked as a nanny for the past five years. My jobs have included working with special needs children, newborn through young teen, twins, and multiple siblings at a time.
Growing up in my mother's daycare, I've learned many educational tools for various ages and developmental stages and love to employ them!
Having primarily worked in childcare, I believe that reliability and consistency are important traits to carry into each situation. Giving children a friend they can count on and parents a babysitter they can know will be looking out for their child's best interests is important to me. I keep my commitments and always make sure not undermine the structure the family has in place for their child. 
More than anything, I operate with gentleness and believe in providing a nurturing environment.

Karin was quick to respond, and on time, and communicated with us very well. The kids enjoyed her, and everyone had a nice evening. I would recommend her to anyone needing a sitter.

Karin helped us several times when we needed a Mother's Helper. We have 3 children under the age of three. Karin interacted with them easily - changing, feeding, and playing with them. She didn't hesitate to jump in and do dishes and help clean up as well. She was reliable, punctual, and a good communicator. We enjoyed having her help when she lived in our area!

Karin was responsive and prompt. Our children really enjoyed having her here. She spent a lot of time reading to our kids, played outside and got them both to bed (not an easy feat!). She also left our house tidy at the end of the night.
