I started babysitting when I was 9 years old and I have not stopped since! Children and a family are an important part of my future but right now I want to be young and educated and enjoy growing up so my own family will have to wait. But the plus side to that is the opportunity I have had over the years to get to know so many wonderful families. When people let me into their homes it is such a blessing to be a small part of molding their children into the best they can be. My experience varies greatly. Anywhere from the neighbors kids when I was 9 to the 3 children with disabilities I was a nanny for during my freshman year in college. I have volunteered in the church nursery almost every Sunday since I was 10. I have volunteered at a camp for children with disabilities at least a little bit every summer for the last 7 summers. I babysit for 3-5 families on a regular basis when I am at home (not at school--but some while I am at school as well). I work in an elementary school currently assisting the teacher in any way I can. My experience is wide and very useful but I certainly have a lot to learn and I would love to be able to invest in and care for your family if you would give me the privilege. Thank you very much, Anna

I'm 19 years old, but I have been watching children since I was 14. During a semester in high school I watched two boys from 5pm to 5am while the parents worked night shifts. During my first two semester in college I cared for a now 2-year old boy for 3 days a week.

We love our nanny. Our daughter is at school from 8:30 to 3:00 everyday and our son stays with our nanny all day. We would love our son to play with a child in his age range while our daughter is at school. We were considering putting him school but would love to explore this option first.
