Meet Renita

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

Hello and thank you for taking time out to review my biography. As you may have already learned, My name is Renita and I am a local a Orlando babysitter. I am a reliable, flexible and trustworthy individual. I enjoy children and I like to engage in their development providing a strong influence on a their positivity and motivation. I have a Bachelor's of Arts in Psychology and a Master's in Social Work and play an active role in the Orange County community including volunteering for programs like 4H (encouraging children to be leaders and building entrepreneurial skills), Fleet Farming in Audubon Park ( transforming front lawns into gardens havesting many fruits and vegetables which are then sold at a local farmers market via a non profit called ideas for us). I also work small group sits, conferences and weddings when needed and aoccompany families in their hotels or to Read more local theme parks to care for their small children on an as needed basis. Additionally, I work from home as a Clinical Counselor where I am able to make my own schedule (an added bonus as I am able to continue to work with children which is where my heart and passion relies). I have a current CPR and First Aid training. My basic responsibilities as a child care provider have been to dress, prepare healthy meals, bathe, help child brush their teeth, light housekeeping (laundry, clean play and eating areas), pick-up/drop-off children, log daily activities, meet with parents to discuss child's daily activities, coordinate play dates, birthday parties, extra curricular activities, assist with potty training, focus on age appropriate developmental tasks, travel with families and entertain the children keeping them busy without relying heavily or in many cases at all on the television. When I am not working with children and families, I enjoy meeting with friends to enjoy food, arts, water related activities or a good book. I also joined an indoor rock climbing gym and a barre fit studio for a little added challenge to my life because as I enjoy helping children grow,I also carry the same drive for growth, development and success in my life! Please check out what other families are saying in my reviews section as well as my background checks. I love forward to hearing from you soon! My Warmest regards, Renita

We used Renita during our stay in Davenport and fully intend to ask for her again when we are in town. We are grateful to have found her. She came to meet the kids prior to the day we needed her services and demonstrated attentiveness, compassion and knowledge about feeding, napping, toileting, administering meds and other aspects of caring for young kids. She took notes about each child and talked with us about the kids behavior strategies/restrictions/rewards, etc... We put her in charge of a 1 yr old, a 3 yr old and an 8 yr old with special needs. Renita was pleasant but firm, and also brought toys for the kiddo's too - we really had a great experience with her!!

Renita watched our girls at our resort while we were on vacation so that we could get massages, and she was amazing. One of our girls does not separate easily AT ALL, but Renita was able to keep her happy for 2+ hours with NO TEARS. Renita is professional, easy to communicate with, and so so so sweet. Our girls were asking if they could play with her again within minutes of her leaving. I would absolutely recommend Renita, and we will use her again if we find ourselves needing a sitter in the Orlando area. She's the best!

Renitas profile looked great and she was very prompt in her responding to messages and texts. We were asking for some early morning hours for in hotel babysitting and she had no problem with it. Renita agreed to meet up with the kids on Weds before watching them. While our 2 yo was understandably shy, both kiddos warmed up to her. She was prompt and on time and had no problems handling a 2 yo & 9 mos old for approx 16 hrs over 3 days. She came prepared with her own toys and games for the kiddos which was nice while staying in a hotel room. She's a super sweet person and the kiddos took to her. If we are down there again I would call her in a heartbeat!!!

I needed a wknd sitter for a conference I was attending while in Orlando. Her profile sounded great, so I decided to contact her. What I liked about Renita was her promptness in corresponding back with me through text or phone call. She is a bright, friendly & intelligent young woman who took to the kids very well. Another family who we were vacationing with us needed a sitter as well, and she even offered to watch all the kids!!! How brave!!! For the day and a half she stayed with the kids, she was extremely capable, and showed great responsibility and the kids had a ton of FuN & thought she was very nice. We would love to contact her in the future & any time we are visiting the Orlando area. Thank you, Renita & Sittercity!!!

Renita came over on a Thursday for the interview.. we instantly fell in love with her.. she is funny, has a great personality and my daughter stated, she reminded her of a family member, which was a good sign! She sat for us on Saturday.. she was on time, even though I wasn't, she was a little under the weather; however she still took my daughter skating. She is a gem and definitely a keeper...thanks Sittercity!
