I began babysitting when I was 13, caring for my five year old cousin. As soon as I finished school, I would pick her up from our grandmother's house, take her home, prepare lunch and do activities with her. Since then, I have done occasional babysitting for infants up to pre-teens. Although I do not have a great deal of nanny experience, I understand how important it is to keep kids active both physically and mentally. When I was 17, I worked for an after school program created to motivate students to excel in school and to learn the value in staying psychically fit. While employed I worked with children from Kindergarten through 5th grade. This experience helped me understand how important it is to pay attention to small signs. I earned my B.A. in Criminal Justice in 2012 from CSU Dominugez Hills. I have the knowledge of how to take care and raise children.
