Vacation Childcare - Ko'Olina

15


15 simbi per hour

Need childcare while you are vacationing on beautiful Oahu, Hawaii? I would be happy to come to your hotel or vacation home to watch your children so you can slip away and enjoy some time as a couple. Depending on the age of your children, I can bring along some games or crafts.

Babysitting services can include preparing meals, nap/bed time routines, giving necessary (pre-approved) medications, story time, play time, going to the pool, etc.

Locations other than Ko'Olina or Waianae will include a travel surcharge (payable in simbi, of course.)

Training & Qualifications


I have over 30 years experience in childcare, including being a full time nanny, working at a day care, and caring for multiples (both twins and triplets), as well as living and working at an orphanage in Mexico. I have experience in home health care and in caring for children with various physical, emotional and developmental differences. Numerous families have had me watch their children for several days as the parents were traveling. I once cared for 6 children for just over a week, when the youngest one was still an infant. I've also traveled with families to help out during the journey. As a former certified EMT and Red Cross First Aid & CPR instructor, I have had extensive first aid training. (I never worked as an EMT but I was certified in Virginia for 4 years.) I've had to use my training twice to save the lives of young children and while I hope to never need it again, I'm very, very grateful that I know what to do in case of an emergency.

I'll be working to get some of my former families to join simbi and leave references but I'm also happy to provide names and contact info for you to check my references yourself. I understand it is hard to trust someone you don't know with your children and I'm willing to do what it takes to make you feel comfortable so you can enjoy your time out!

Availability & Preferences


My schedule is pretty open. Just let me know when you'll be here and we'll figure out a time that works for you.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!
