I became a caregiver because I enjoy working with children. I have plenty of experience working with a range of different age groups of children from infants to school age. I’ve been working with children for 7 + years and have had many fun experiences watching them grow . I have also developed amazing relationships with the children and their families over the years of care and still babysit for some occasionally. I find it is important to provide a safe explorative space for children to learn and develop as well as being able to feel cared for. Helping children develop a strong sense of independence is something I enjoy supporting. I enjoy getting to know children and their personalities because every child is different and that’s what makes this line of work so special.

Melissa was great as a babysitter. In the days leading up to when we hired her, our interactions were good and she has good references. She was friendly and easy to get along with for the kids, and she kept them on their schedule. She's on my shortlist for babysitters for future occasions.
