Brittany Weinstein - Former River Oaks resident and Towson University graduate in Early Childhood Education, now teaching 2nd grade at Judge Sylvania Woods in PG county and living in Crofton, MD, but still sitting for River Oaks families.  Over 10 years of experience with children of all ages (newborns-middle school). Has worked with many families in the Anne Arundel and Baltimore County. References available. Contact Brittany Weinstein by email or by phone (443) 694-7706. (Recommended by Leslie Kahl)

Brittany has been babysitting for our 20-month-old daughter for the past five months. Prior to meeting Brittany, we had never left our daughter with anyone other than our parents. We were nervous about leaving our little one with anyone else, and to make matters more difficult, our daughter was going through the ?I only want Mommy? phase.  Brittany was recommended by our good friends who assured us that Brittany was calm, reliable and responsible. From the moment we met her, Brittany connected with our daughter. She spoke to her, played with her and began to build a relationship with her. The first few times Brittany came to our home, I stayed with her and my daughter to allow them an opportunity to interact and become more comfortable with one another and to give me a greater comfort level about leaving. I was impressed with Brittany because she seemed to know how to calm and distract my daughter when I left the room. Brittany engaged her in play and learning and easily held her attention. Brittany made the transition easy by sending me texts and pictures to let me know that our daughter was doing well in my absence. We have been so pleased to have Brittany babysitting for us. She has proven to be reliable, very responsible and caring. Even in the most trying instances, Brittany remains calm and collected and knows what to do. We trust her to give our daughter her daily medicine and she gets her to eat and sleep which is no easy task. We would be happy to serve as a reference if there are families in your neighborhood considering having her sit for their children. (Susan and Nick Milano.)
