I have been babysitting and watching over both young and older children since I was about 12 years old. I have a 11 year old younger sister that I have been watching from time to time since she was just about 2 years old. I also have a little nephew who is now 5 that I have watched and taken care of whenever needed too. I have been watching friends and families children for the past 9 years, and haven't had a problem since. I know that is a young age to start watching children, but they all thought that I was trustworthy enough to take care of their children while they were out. I also have experience watching multiple children at the same time. I used to volunteer to help out at school carnival's and conferences to watch over young children when their parents weren't around to watch them. I enjoy watching children, it is a fun experience and I am definitely a people person so I try to have fun watching over them as well as make sure they are as safe as can be. I have many years of experience and hope you will give me the opportunity to provide care to your children as well.
