Spring S. - Seeking Work in San Luis Obispo

20.00 / hour

Since age nine I helped in my family of eight children. At age twelve I started babysitting. I home schooled my two children and covered grades K-12. During that time I was involved in various co-operative homeschooling groups. I oversaw group classes at my home on many occasions. I homeschooled because it proved to be a better form of education than what was provided in the area in which I lived. My two adult children are now College-educated and on their own.

Ever since the family across the street would let me watch their kids in the 4th grade, I knew I loved kids. I always babysat casually on and off until senior year of high school when I was given the opportunity to nanny for 3 girls for the summer. Moving to Santa Barbara after I graduated, I starting working at Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club in their Childcare and babysat regularly for a lot of the families. I watched 3 boys 1-2 nights a week for a year and absolutely loved it. After moving away, I continued to babysit for various families but it was always on top of another couple of jobs. I love kids. I think they are exciting, inspiring and help you to laugh at the little things!
