I have worked closely with a family of 2 young boys from the time they were 6 months and two years to the present. They are now 4 and 6 years old. I have worked various hours for the family, from 32 hours/week to 10 hour/week. I play with the boys, clean, and cook. I spent a lot of time working on potty training, diaper changing, alphabet skills, and walking. I have also watched a baby girl from the time she was about 6 months old until she was 2 or 3 years old. My responsibilities with her were to drive her, play with her, cook, and clean. There have been other small side jobs for families of 2 or 3 older children that I helped out only on occasional weekends where the responsibilities are usually just dinner and bedtime.

A little history: I was a daycare teacher for kids pre-k through fifth grade for 2 years and absolutely loved the experience! I went through CPR training to qualify for the job and studied Early Childhood Ed courses in school. I have many family members that range in ages from infant, toddlers and pre-teens so I'm confident I can handle any age group as well as more than one child at a time
