Looking for work as a babysitter or nanny

  • 12 years paid experience
  • Babysitter in Spanaway, WA 98387

Meet Silvia

  • Early Childhood Special Education Certification
  • Speaks Spanish
  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I currently work for a public school district. I have previous experience working in the infant/toddler room and school age children at La Petite Academy Daycare. I am CPR and First Aid certified, which I believe is a plus point, since handling children requires a sitter to be prepared for unforeseen circumstances. I am able to drive children to school and accompany them at medical appointments. I am well-versed in performing housework related to childcare, including washing clothes, cleaning up after meals, and tidying up play areas. I don't mind planning and preparing nutritious meals for children according to their tastes and nutritional needs. I enjoy playing with children and helping them develop skills by creating a stimulating environment. My goal is to provide a nurturing and safe environment for children. I'm fluent in English and Spanish. I don't mind pets at all!

Silvia did a wonderful job caring for our two pets, one cat and one dog. Both are full of personality and need lots of attention. Silvia stayed overnight and visited before our trip to meet the animals personally. She made them comfortable right off the bat, and kept us at ease throughout our trip with regular check-ins. I recommend Silvia highly for anyone looking for a reliable and personable pet sitter. We can't wait to use her again!

I contacted Silvia almost 7 months ago and she has been our one and only sitter ever since. She is absolutely phenomenal with our three-year-old daughter who is ALWAYS ecstatic when we tell her that Silvia is coming over. We couldn't be happier to have found her and I hope she never leaves the Denver area! Silvia is such a warm and friendly person and she loves playing with our daughter, but she is also firm with her as well, making sure to follow our home rules and stay in routine. She always answers my texts about booking dates and is very communicative while babysitting. She's always been 100% reliable and we've never thought one negative thing about her. I simply can't rave enough. To drive it all home, here is our most recent experience: I graduated with my master's degree and to celebrate, my husband bought tickets to the Denver ballet, made fancy dinner reservations, and reserved an expensive night in a downtown hotel. Our daughter had actually come down with a cold with fevers during the week before and I was so sad thinking that we simply couldn't leave her, no matter who was watching her. After explaining everything to Silvia over text, she called me to soothe my fears and told me exactly how she would care for our daughter while we were gone for the night. She addressed all of my concerns and even stayed awake the entire night, to be there for our daughter for every single time she woke up. We have a monitor in her room...so we were able to SEE poor Silvia awake all night, putting our daughter first and taking such good care of her. When we came home the next morning, she'd even given her a bath after an icky accident and they were actually having a great time playing together. Silvia even texted me a day later to check on how our daughter was feeling. We know we can count on Silvia for anything when it comes to our most precious thing on earth. And to top it off, Silvia is great with our dog too! :-)

I cant put into words how truly blessed me and my son where for finding Silvia. She watched my son for 5 weeks on Monday evenings while I attended a class. I don't trust ANYONE with my son but Silvia made me feel confident and secure enough to leave him. He had such a good time and even went to bed for her which he never does with anyone, but me. I will defiantly use Silvia in the future and would highly recommend her!

We are so blessed to have found Silvia last year! She has babysat for us several times by now and our kids (5 & 7) absolutely love her. She is fun loving, kind and extremely responsible. She is always quick to respond and communicate. Our daughter (5) can tend to be shy with babysitters, but she loves Silvia and is always excited to see her!

Silvia and her daughter are both amazing people and wonderful with my 2 young daughters! Very responsible and kind! I needed help on Sundays with my girls while I studied all day, sometimes until late at night. Silvia made it easier for me to focus on school work by having everything done, kids asleep, and the house tidy by the time I got home! Both of my girls loved having her here, and I will continue using her for my childcare needs for as long as she will let me!

We had Silvia stay overnight for 2 weeks over the holidays, and she did an amazing job with our two large, rambunctious dogs. She was great at giving them walks or runs every day, occasional hikes in the mountains, keeping them company, and sending pictures of them to us every day. It was a huge relief to us, knowing that our dogs were in such good hands. Beyond that, she left the house super clean, which was really lovely to come home to! We would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs pet sitting!

I am a new Mother of boy/ girl twins. Silvia watched our babies so we were able to go see a concert and, have much needed Mommy/Daddy time since the twins were born! She was so wonderful by texting me pictures and, communicating with me through out the night. We have already booked some future date nights with her. Silvia completely put me at ease for having a baby sitter for the first time. If she watches your child or children they are in amazing hands!

Silvia went above and beyond. She picked up my 6 year old son from after school care, brought him home, made dinner and then played games until bedtime. He had a blast. Will definitely hire her again!

While visiting Denver last week Silvia watched my 1 and 5 year old so that my boyfriend, parents and I could catch a concert in Red Rocks for the evening. She communicated clearly ahead of time to confirm details and my boys adored her. Thanks for making our trip extra special!!

Silvia was available last minute to care for my 8 month old twins. She was prompt and immediately started engaging the babies and playing on the floor with them. She had great communication via text throughout the night and I felt very comfortable with her!
