Years of Childcare Experience: 10
I was born and raised in Tahoe, and find myself always returning. I enjoy the many outdoor activities living here provides including skiing, mountain bike riding and hiking. I consider myself very outdoorsy, and think it's important to take advantage of this beautiful area. I am also a creative person, so art (more specifically painting) have been a great outlet and passion. This led me to attend Sonoma State University as an Art major, with a Human Development minor. As a childcare provider, I enjoy sharing my love of the outdoors and creativity/art with kids. I have over ten years of experience including babysitting, pre-school teaching and most recently an au pair for a 6 month old baby boy who is now 3. I think it's important to provide children with a fun, fulfilling and enriched environment. I am an enthusiastic and responsible person and look forward to meeting you and your kids!

My name is Chloe and I absolutely love caring for children! My husband and I recently moved down from my hometown Portland, Oregon to our new home in Carson City, Nevada! After growing up in an in-home daycare setting where I began working with children, I then became a private nanny to some wonderful families. For the last year I have had the pleasure of working for this outstanding company Sierra Sitters, where I am able to work with many great families! I have a total of 13 years of experience, with ages ranging from newborn-10 years old. I enjoy playing outside, arts and crafts, reading and creative play. I believe the children should have a memorable experience while visiting the Lake Tahoe area, and I will help make that experience unforgettable! I look forward to meeting you and your little ones during your stay in the beautiful Sierras!

I am a compassionate, loving, go with the flow woman who adores children, yet can be firm at times if required. I have two children of my own ages 11 and 13, and seem to attract the angel eyes of little kids. I enjoy bringing my love of art, dance, outdoors, healthy foods, Steiner style learning and exploration to children. Interactive choices and empowering others to be confident in their own freewill while still being respectful and honoring of those around them is key. I love the opportunity to get messy, loud and energetic with children… and we clean up afterward, knowing that we had a good, full day.
I have traveled to 14 different countries and many US states. and gained an appreciation for different cultures and am confident with challenging situations.

I have lived on the beautiful North Shore of Lake Tahoe for most of my life. I raised 2 children in this outstanding tight-knit community...both finishing college and returning to reside close by in the Tahoe City neighborhood.
I have years of child care experience starting all through my High School years in Palo Alto, CA as a nanny for a family of 6 children.
After college and moving to Tahoe City I continued to follow my natural instinct for child care becoming part of the Tahoe City Chamber of Commerce roster of babysitters...offering child care to many local and visiting families.
I have a background in small business management. My interests include all & everything to do with art & crafts. I currently operate a sewing studio in my home and have recently offered my time teaching students the lost art of basic sewing skills.
In my personal time I enjoy cooking, yoga/Pilates and walking/hiking.
I truly enjoy being with children. Discovering their unique personalities, offering my talents and desire for fun & wonderful Tahoe memories...always mindful, with respect, that I take my responsibility to you and yours very seriously. I always look forward to meeting each new family.

My name is Julie Cooley-Rieders and the Tahoe Truckee area has been my hhome for all my adult life. Taking care of children has been my ppassionn. Allowing children to grow, explore and learn is a rewarding experience that keeps me excited as I continue caring for children of all ages.
For many years I owned a Family Daycare business in my Truckee, Ca home. This created an opportunity for me to spend time with my own children. Learning through exploration, art, reading, nature, and outdoor observations offers children a rich experience. Nurturing each child’s interests helps them become strong solid people who respect themselves.
Working as a Nanny for Sara at Sierra Sitters is a wonderful experience, providing opportunities to meet many families and children of all ages. I am honored to take care of the children I meet, and have a positive impact on their lives. The variety of families that request Nanny Services continues to make each day I work an interesting and fun experience.

Growing up, I knew I wanted to work with children. In high school, I was accepted to be part of a teaching academy program. Throughout my four years I was able to team teach at a variety of elementary schools to kids from kinder-5th grade. My first job out of high school I worked as an assistant at a childcare facility. I began my college education in 2002 at San Jose State majoring in elementary education. In 2003, I made the move, along with my family to the Reno area where I lived for six years. There I attended UNR and TMCC majoring in Child Development. I have earned my Certificate in Child Development. While living in Reno I worked as a nanny, a kindergarten teacher assistant, as well an assistant and lead teacher at several childcare centers. In 2008-2011, I worked at KinderCare as the lead teacher for the two year olds. I am currently 31 years old and living in Truckee, CA. I work as a nanny for Sierra Sitters and at a shelter in Reno for children who are in the process of being fostered or adopted. I have experience working with all ages, infant to teen.
Working with kids for so many years, I have come to understand that children come into the world with a blank slate. The experiences, environment, adults, as well as surroundings are what shape them into who they become. I feel our responsibility as parents and teachers is to provide children with the best possible education, knowledge, and choices so they are able to grow to their maximum potential. I believe that children should be given the ability to become independent individuals by setting limits with positive discipline, praise, and encouragement. I enjoy being surrounded by children because of their imagination, innocence, and creativity.
I am a creative person who enjoys making crafty items for family and friends. I love listening to music of all different genres, reading non-fiction books, dancing, and meeting people of all different cultures. Learning is a lifelong passion for me enjoying the many different cultures around the world.

Originally born and raised in New Jersey, my career in hospitality has allowed me to relocate for several years to the island of Key West, FL, and in early 2017 to Tahoe! I recently find myself working as a Reservations Manager for several hotels and vacation rentals in the North Lake Tahoe Area. I have a passion for learning new things and going on adventures, yet find that I thrive in organized, hard-working environments. I enjoy hiking, walking the dog, and trying out all the new local restaurants… and shops of course!
My family in NJ is large and tight-net so I spent most of my childhood watching over young cousins and siblings. Throughout high-school and college I nannied for several different families, ranging from newborns to young adults, I have experience with some special needs and dietary restrictions. My longest nannying job was for a family of two toddlers that I watched for over a year and a half full-time, otherwise I am the perfect date night sitter! I like to color, play games, and any types of arts & crafts when I am working (and at home sometimes too!!). I have found myself with some extra time in the evenings and on my days off while living in Tahoe and would love to spend it watching your children!

I currently reside in Incline Village, I grew up in Southern California. Lake Tahoe has always been my second home, as I have been hiking in the Tahoe Basin, via a baby carrier, and lounging on the beach, since before I could tell my parents to take me outside. I absolutely love this area and all it has to offer: hiking, swimming, skiing, spa-ing, and endless outdoor activities year round. As someone who spent my childhood vacations here, I can vouch that it is 100% a kid’s paradise.
I attended the University of California, Berkeley and earned a BA in English. Because of this, I adore reading bedtime stories and talking about Harry Potter. I love all animals, but I’ll admit I’m less of a fan of insects. I’m a self-declared excellent cook and baker; I have made endless pasta dishes and freshly baked cookies. And I’m a certified yoga instructor who enjoys teaching yoga to everyone of every age. I have a crush on the world and love traveling; I can speak a little French, Spanish, and Portuguese. I love music, books, puzzles, crafts, board games, card games, and other interactive games like charades. One of my artsy specialties is coloring and singing along to classic Disney songs, but my talents are adaptable and I love exploring whatever interests the kids I babysit. Number one priority is ensuring you and your family are comfortable, happy, and enjoy your stay. And I sincerely hope I can assist in creating a memorable holiday!
