Carlyn first started babysitting after school when she was 13 for her younger sister and cousin (seven and 5 years old). She is one of the eldest cousins in her family and with six younger cousins, she was always busy caring for one or more of them. Her first infant experience was eight years ago at the age of 15 for a mother of four, the younger two of whom she watched.
Since then, Carlyn has continued to watch little guys from newborns to 12 years. She has always loved putting together craft projects on rainy days, organizing trips to the park or nature walks, helping with homework, encouraging a healthy imagination and safe fun!
She is very accustomed to high energy families and loves the challenge of keeping kids interested and active. In addition to child care, she is happy to provide care for pets and is more than willing to help with chores around the house and preparing meals. She also has experience as a lifeguard at a camp for terminally ill children and their families, and has taken courses in first aid and wilderness first aid, CPR, and child care. She is more than happy to provide any other services that help families spend more quality time with their kids including housekeeping, cooking, etc.
