I'm punctual, reliable, a non smoker and CPR/FIRST AID certified. I have 10 years of childcare experience working as a nanny/sitter and also in daycare facilities in which I've taken care of children of various age groups ranging from infants to age seven. As a nanny/sitter and daycare staff member/teacher I performed various daily tasks that included keeping things sanitary, writing up time logs, sensory/mobility development exercises for infants that help with milestones, preparing meals/snacks, change diapers, teaching basic learning skills (colors, numbers, ABCs, etc) outside activities, creative arts & crafts, singing songs, dancing, reading books and playing games.

Dayna is amazing. I was looking for a last minute sitter for my 5 year old and I was blessed to come across her profile and offer to help out. She goes above and beyond, is great with kids (and dogs!) and is super professional. She loves her job and that is so clear in how well she does it. She's also a great problem solver, came into our situation with little info about us and not much more than a phone interview and did leagues better than any sitter or nanny we've ever had before. I would recommend her to anyone!

My husband and I were looking for a sitter for our infant daughter. We received well over 50 applications on Sittercity, but Dayna's was far and away the best -- great reviews, background check, and she sent an organized resume our way. Dayna instantly put us at ease for our first time using a babysitter for our baby. She is a mature and experienced caregiver (she works as a nanny during the week) who clearly enjoys babies and knows just what to do to keep them happy. The first time she met my daughter, she was on her hands and knees doing tummy time with her and cuddling her. She is on time (even a little early to make sure there is time to go over everything), comfortable with swaddling and feeding, and sends regular text updates throughout the evening to keep the worried parents relaxed! We have now used her twice, and I plan to use her again. We highly recommend this mature professional who clearly takes a lot of care and pride in what she does!

We chose Dayna to sit for our daughter for the month before there was space for her at the daycare. Ours was a short-term posting and unlike most of the applicants, Dayna actually read our posting and acknowledged all of our needs in her application. Probably the best way to endorse Dayna is to tell you that our daughter happily went into her arms every day. Due to the recent weather, our two-year old had daycare cancelled, and he really enjoyed the couple of snow days he spent with her. We also appreciated that Dayna was always punctual, and easily adapted to our household routines. She consistently kept us well informed throughout the day with text updates and pictures, and kept a thorough written log of all the events and activities of the day (i.e., ounces drunk, nap duration, activities, outings). She kept our daughter engaged with tummy time, movement exercises, reading books, and singing songs, and took her outside for fresh air. It was wonderful to come home each night to clean bottles and a tidy play area and changing space clean. We'd happily recommend her to other families looking for a caring, dependable nanny.

My 2 year old son recently joined a nanny share with Dayna and we could not be happier with the care she provides. Dayna is patient, fun, kind and reliable. Our schedule is somewhat variable and Dayna has been 100% accommodating. She takes our son to lots of activities and keeps us well informed with texts/pics/videos. She is highly skilled handling toddlers, particularly calming tantrums, teaching good behavior and manners. I would highly recommend Dayna for any type of childcare position.

Dayna is a wonderful nanny to our 2 year old son. She is patient and calm and he has lots of fun with her. Dayna is always on time, and leaves our home clean and organized. She is a good communicator and I would highly recommend her.

Dayna has worked for us since our son was 4 months old. Dayna provides excellent care for both our son and our dog. She was helpful at every milestone, helping our son learn to crawl, learn to walk, identify his colors, learn his ABC's...the list goes on. Almost as important as the care she provided for our son and dog, Dayna was always on time, even a few minutes early, and if there were ever any unexpected days off, she gave us as much advance notice as possible. Having the peace of mind that we could rely on Dayna for competent, compassionate care for our children (both human and canine) is incredibly valuable. If you're interested in hiring Dayna to care for your little one(s), we certainly recommend that you do so! A few more reasons she's a great caretaker: She keeps our apartment neat and tidy, keeps us informed of what our son and dog do throughout the day with texts, emails, and written logs, takes our son to various activities throughout the neighborhood, and is extremely flexible with scheduling.

We have had the great fortune of welcoming Dayna into our family as the full-time nanny for our daughter. Dayna started with us when our daughter was 4mos old, when I was headed back to work. As a first-time mom, I was nervous about finding a nanny, but Dayna instantly set me at ease. She is kind, professional, and lots of fun. Our daughter quickly bonded with her, and Dayna takes wonderful care of her throughout the day. Some noteworthy things about Dayna: - Got our infant daughter on a schedule her first week on the job - Focuses on sensory and mobility development - Keeps me well-informed throughout the day via text (many with pics/videos) - Facilitates great communication about any issues/questions with regular check-ins - Ensures the baby's play and changing areas are picked up and clean - Takes daily walks with our daughter and dog to enjoy the fresh air - Arranges playdates with other babies in our building - Also cares for and plays with our dog We are moving out of state, and so we must say goodbye to Dayna. We will miss her dearly, and hope she finds another family who appreciates and loves her like we do!
