I have experience as a part-time nanny with children 2 and up but most of my babysitting experience is with infants up to toddlers. I began babysitting in high school and it just began from there. I have been taking care of Max for about 5 years now and I began taking care of him when he was 8 months. I also have experience with children with diabetes and autism and I have also babysat children with a.d.d and a.d.h.d. I have been a part-time nanny the past 2 years with a one year old and a two year old but mom has decided to stay home unfortunatly. I am most comfortable though with infants and toddlers.

I was a nanny for 1 year for children who were 3 and 5. They are now 8 and 10 and still a part of my life. I then moved on and became a preschool teacher. I was a preschool teacher for a large corporation for 2 years at which point I quit to stay home with my son after he was born. He is now 3 years old and I have a new part time position that I have been at for 2 years. I teach 4 and 5 year olds, but my current place of business has children as young as 18 months that I interact with at some point during the day.

To each toddler that is under my care receives a fun study book to start learning the basics.
