Help finding childcare online

25 value Virtual OK

Are you looking for childcare but having a hard time attracting suitable candidates? If you are conducting your search for a babysitter through a site like Sittercity.com, Care.com or even Craigslist, many of the more experienced nannies will skip your profile if it is missing critical information. I can look over your ad or profile and suggest improvements. I'll let you know what would make me skip it or be drawn to apply for your job.

I've been working in childcare for over 35 years. As I'm looking for a new position right now, I'm surprised at how many profiles have so little information provided. Because I would probably get kicked off the site if I messaged all of them about how to fix their profiles, I decided to come offer that service here for free. You deserve the best childcare for your children! Let me help you get it!

Training & Qualifications


As a long time childcare provider, I know what nannies are looking for as they read your profile. I've gone through literally thousands of profiles on numerous websites over the last two decades.

I LOVE to travel but it is so expensive from Hawaii. If anyone has vouchers they won't be using (and that can be transferred) I'd love to trade. Just let me know what you think is reasonable. I'...

About Charissa Potrafka

I've lived in Hawaii for over 10 years now and absolutely love it! I'm a nanny and photographer who also makes jewelry (mostly sterling silver and glass) and loves to do crafts. I have extensive exp...erience with pet sitting and house sitting, as well. If you are visiting Hawaii, I'd love to give you inside tips and help you plan your trip, especially if you are trying to do it on a budget. Being frugal in paradise is my specialty! My newest adventure is that I've found a way to get scuba certified and go diving for FREE! WooHoo! I'm doing a work exchange program with a dive shop here on Oahu. I'm a "tank monkey" for one shift a week in exchange for my lessons and equipment. After a pretty horrendous health ordeal, it is exciting to be getting my life back and being active again. I'm into the "crunchy" lifestyle and prefer to make as much as possible myself. I've been brewing kombucha for 10 years now. I also make sourdough and yogurt. If there is a way to DIY something, I've probably tried it (or want to try it!)show more
