I worked with a wonderful family who had 2 boys. I started by caring for the oldest when he was about 18 months old, just prior to the youngest boy being born. When the newborn was about 8 weeks old I took on the care of both children. Prior to this I worked approximately 4 years in a day care center. I worked primarily with children aged 6 weeks through school aged children. I currently am the mother of a 10 month old.
