My mom use to own a babysitting business from the time I was 2-12 years old so I was always helping and was around all kinds of children of different ages. I am also the oldest grandchild of over 20 which meant I have grown up watching and taking care of my little cousins, along with odds and ends babysitting jobs for families at church. My junior year of high school I worked at a sports facility in the day care section and got to know the kids and grew a bond with them, but had to quit to get a better paying job for college.

I have a lot of childcare experience. I have babysat since I was about 10 years old. I have a big family and being one of the oldest I got the responsibility of being "the 2nd mom". After that I began watching other peoples children of all ages ranging from (babies under 1 - to around 12 years old). Over nights included and for some a few days at a time. I began interning at the elementary school in high school and loved every minute of it. I grew up learning how to take care of kids and I enjoy it.
