As you start to book your Valentine’s Date Night plans, you might be thinking of what to do with the kiddos? We’ve got you covered! The Educated Babysitter is a wonderful small business dedicated to providing impeccable service to families with babysitting needs in Alexandria and the greater metropolitan area. I had a chance to chat with the owner, Tracy Smith Houston, about her extensive tenure in childcare and education and would happily recommend you book her for your babysitting needs. Tracy has been a full-time teacher for 22 years, has two Master’s degrees in Education and just simply loves caring for children which prompted her to start her own child care company in 2007.
While most sitting services you’ll come across have higher fees for nights like Valentine’s Day where most couples are seeking a night out, The Educated Babysitter charges their regular rate of $15/hr for up to two children (siblings) and just $5/hr for each additional sibling. Some of the bigger companies charge a monthly subscription fee, which is not the case with Tracy’s team.
Just as we specialize in serving the Northern Virginia area with exceptional real estate services, as does Tracy in caring for children. The Educated Babysitter will be celebrating it’s 10-year anniversary in business this year!
