Was she really Goffin and King's babysitter?

According to this fairly detailed biography, she was their live-in nanny/maid.

Apparently they were inspired by her style of dancing and wrote The Loco-Motion, potentially as a song for Dee Dee Sharp to follow up Mashed Potato Time with. They got Little Eva to do the demo, and Kirshner loved her version so much it became the single.

She doesn't do windows, but she does do the Locomotion.
