I started babysitting for friends of the family as soon as I was old enough to get my Red Cross certificate. I have babysat weekends and Summers ever since. I have also worked some after school care, and know that I am patient and helpful when getting kids through difficult homework assignments. The children I watch are important to me, and many past families call often when a child has a homework project due the next day, or the parents are going out last minute. Some families I have worked for have had multiple children, and being a part of a family's growth and the children's development is something I cherish. When working with children, I take special care to implement art and outdoor play, as well as reading and projects, for a well rounded child. I know that I work very well with children and have loved every child I have worked for.
