Maija West

Maija West
Kalamazoo, MI

Hello there, I'm Maija! I currently only have a permit so until I am able to drive, I can only babysit for families in the Westwood neighborhood. I recently graduated from Kalamazoo Central and will be starting college this fall for early childhood education. I love working with children, I have been looking after my cousins since I was around the age of 10 but have been babysitting since the age of 13. I am looking for babysitting or light nannying jobs for up until I leave for college, I am also interested in doing some babysitting over college breaks. I love to do arts and crafts. I try to incorporate learning into play if I am able. I am red cross babysitting certified which includes cpr and first aid. My rate starts at $12 an hour for one child Things I am comfortable with:

  • Pets such as Dogs, Fish, Most Reptiles, Small animals
  • Cooking or preparing simple meals
  • Helping with and laundry or dishes
  • Homework help
  • School pickups, I live down the street from King Westwood and would be more than willing to pick up kids and walk them home after school.
  • Helping with bedtime, I have many times put kids to bed if the parents requested it. I am okay with helping brush teeth and hair and reminding kids to shower along with helping with pajamas. I am not comfortable being directly in charge of doing baths unless it is a baby or toddler who needs one, I know kids have accidents so in that case I am willing to give a bath if needed. Things I am not able to do at the moment:
  • Cloth Diapers, I haven't had experience with them so at this time I'm not comfortable changing any cloth diapers.
  • Being around cats or preparing food with peanuts as I am allergic to both of those things
  • Caring for children with complex needs. I haven't had the proper training for caring with children who require things such as feeding tubes or insulin injections/corrections.
  • Working past sunset as I currently cannot drive so walking is my only option at the moment. Please message me if interested!
