All of my past experiences with childcare has been amazing. The kids are so much fun and they make me happy. It is a joy to work with children! I watched a family of 3 girls for two years. I would probably still be watching them today if they didnt move to Japan. I also watched another family with a boy and girl. They were sometimes a handfull but it was never boring with them. I also have taken care of my cousins and other great children. My most recent job is working at a daycare. It is wonderful!
