I got my first babysitting job when i was 14 years old work working for my next door neighbor Sandy for 3 years M-F, for 5 hours a day. I cared for her 2 year old son and 8 year old daughter. My job consisted of getting Shanell (the 8 year old) off the school bus everyday at 3pm. Preparing a snack for her and having her start her homework. At 6pm we would walk up the street to pick up Bryson (the 2 year old) from daycare. I would then prepare dinner for them (usually left overs their mom made the day before) give them a bath and get them ready for bed. Their mom usually got home at 8 and that is the time i would go home and she would put them to bed. I was also in charge of scheduling dentist and doctors appointment, and light cleaning up of what ever mess was made with toys, food etc. I absolutely adored this family, unfortunatley i stopped working with them after their move to Texas. Months after their move i began working for the little hatters daycare where i cared for kids from 4 months old up to 5 years old for a year and a half. My job consisted of creating lesson plans, cleaning, preparing snacks, changing diapers, potty training, taking kids outside, story time and a bunch of other fun activities. However my time at the daycare was cut short due to my hectic school schedule. I Earned a certificate in child development and early childhood for taking courses in high school where i learned the ins and outs of properly caring for infants and learning their milestones. These courses also allowed 6 months of actually working with children for a class period during the school day.

I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old, working with the ages of newborn to the teenage years. I love children and I always have been around children growing up. My mom was a preschool teacher while I was growing up so I would see her interact with children. It was so great to have such an inspirational mentor growing up. I started watching children from the young age of twelve, for multiple families in my neighborhood. I also took on a nanny job when I was in school for my associates degree for a one year old baby, I would spend my day with her taking care of her needs(breakfast, nap and lunch) while going on walks with her and creating other activities for us to do. I also babysat for several other families at the same time all which exposed me to interacting with children of all ages and children's multiple moods that they have. This past year I had two nanny experiences one with a four month old and the other with a family of three(11 year old, 3 year old and 1 year old). Each of the experiences allowed me to create a bond with each child and learn very valuable lessons from them. I would create activities and crafts for us to participate in while I was there, I am a huge arts and crafts person and I believe that arts are very beneficial for the child. I encourage and motivate the child to participate in creating projects with me that will allow them to learn while it not feeling much like a lecture. I believe art is an excellent tool for learning and that it has many positive benefits.
