Meet Karen

  • Comfortable with pets

Hi! I'm Karen. I'm looking for a babysitter position in or near Worthington, Ohio. I'm currently working part-time as an Infant Teacher in a child care center. I have over 3 years paid experience working with children, especially infants and toddlers, as well as being a parent myself! I have a BA in Social Sciences with 18 credits in early childhood education. Currently certified in CPR/First Aid, communicable diseases, and child abuse awareness. Trained in conscious/positive discipline. My hobbies include gardening and swimming. My best trait is being empathetic. I'm passionate about literacy, hygiene, imaginative play, daily exercise, nature, music and art. My childcare philosophy includes gentle discipline, developmentally appropriate activities, focus on nutrition, limiting screen time, valuing the process of creativity over the finished product, and getting outdoors to explore! If you are looking for a sitter who will be ENGAGED with your child instead of sitting around, that's Read more me! I am happy to help with household chores as well. I am still working on learning to drive so I can't help (yet) with running errands (sorry!). Please feel free to contact if you feel like I would be a good fit for your family.
