Discover Newport recommends:
Each sitter on the staff is screened extensively, and is an individual working in the childcare field (either as a teacher, daycare provider, baby-sitter, etc.) including the Owner/Director, Jennifer DeLuise. She was a full-time nanny, with 10 years of experience in the field, before starting a family of her own - she now has three children ages 11, 8, and 5. She definitely knows the importance and value in finding exceptional childcare! Each sitter is certified in CPR and First Aid by the American Red Cross. Parents of the children can be put in touch with the sitter assigned so that they can speak with them before the event to check references or ask any questions.
The sitters bring along to every event an assortment of books, crafts, crayons, coloring books, toys, movies, etc. to keep the kids busy- and happy!
There are no age limitations as far as the children are concerned- they care for newborns, teenagers, and every age in between.
Individual family rates are:
1 child in the family: $25.00/hr with a 4 hour minimum
2 children: $25.00/hr with a 4 hour minimum
3 children: $30.00/hr with a 4 hour minimum
Sitters for individual families are on a first come first serve basis.
