*The Educated Babysitter is taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our staff and clients during this Covid-19 outbreak and beyond. All staff must wash hands often while caring for children, make sure the children's hands are washed, as well as keep hand sanitizer. We will not care for sick children at this time, nor will we send sick staff to clients' homes. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Tracy or Dominque via email.

I've been using Tracy's babysitting service since 2013 when my son was only 5 months old and I've been very happy and satisfied with her service! Fast and quick confirmation of availability and very reliable. I've been happy with very sitter I've had and will continue using The Educated Babysitter in the future.
