Amy’s Bio

Hello Moms and Dads!
My name is Amy, I am a college graduate with a Master's Degree in Fine Arts. I live in Klahanie's Sundance Community on the Sammamish Plateau. I like children a lot and have a space available for one to two children in my home by appointment and will be happy to entertain last minute sitting needs. I am also available for overnights or extended visits if needed.
I have sleeping or napping space in a guest room tailored for kids. Within this space are twin bunk beds, a crib and we have a movable pack and play. I have many many toys,  blankets, etc (backup items if you forget something) for many ages and genders. Everything is clean and we are a non-smokers. I model healthy behavior for children and provide lot's of TLC for each child that comes into my home with individual needs in mind.
I participated in CPR for adults and children/infants in the past as well as proper first aid training. I feel confident that I will provide a safe, fun, educational, and nurturing experience for your child.
My availability is flexible and I work from my home.  I have plenty of experience with babies and children of many developmental stages and will be happy to entertain questions, meet with your family here at my home, etc to help you make your decision. 
My experience ranges from newborns complete with umbilical cords healing and circumcisions healing to teething babies, walkers/toddlers, preschoolers and early grade schoolers. The oldest I've sat for is age 11 both boy and girl. Most recent kids in my care have been 2, 4, 6, and 11 at different times of the year. I love promoting reading, art, music and basic developmental learning skills. I'm happy to incorporate outtings with your permission to the public libraries, local parks, lakeside exploration, or just some fresh air walks. I have a p-patch garden if your child is old enough to visit as well.
If you want to bring special items, I'd encourage it, such as a comfort blankie, bear or special toy that makes a baby/child more secure or comfortable. I'm open to new tricks of the childcare trade and over time have learned an immense amount by experience. I charge ($15/in diapers; $12 out of diapers pls.)
My TOP priority is the comfort of your child! I am extremely creative, sensitive and capable of making educated choices for your child with your parenting goals in mind.

I love this woman and would trust her with my daughter anytime. My child loves her and loves going over there. She is treated like a princess there, but they are caring and there are limits. I would not hesitate to recommend Amy as a sitter. She is worth the drive even if you feel you are far out. How often do you find an educated, capable adult who has a talent for kids who is also available and totally trustworthy? I know I'm gushing, but if anyone wants more info, feel free to email me at kristilynnevans@yahoo.com. Thank you!
