Megan C. - Seeking Work in Ridgefield

14.28 / hour

I have been babysitting "technically" since I was 13 years old. However when I was 9 I took care of my infant brother. I love kids and I feel that comes across to familes. Living on a street full of kids growing, I was the go to girl for babysitting. Also my parents had friends with children that I would babysit for. I love going outside with kids and running around. I feel kids don't go outside as much anymore due to television and video games. I also have experience working at summer camps, where I was in charge of watching over 10 children at a time. So I can handle big groups. I was a camp counsler for three years. I am a very patient individual seeing as I have two younger brothers that I too took care of. Overall, I love giggling, happy children so I try to make sure they always have fun and structured time.

I am the second oldest of seven children. I have been babysitting for my younger siblings since I was 12, and at that time they were 10, six and six, and two and two. Also, my aunt has two little children who are four and two, who are over so often, they are practically my siblings too. I have also taken care of my neighbor's two young children, one of whom has diabetes, last summer during the days. During my high school years, I never really had a job besides babysitting numerous families during the week and on weekends. I have even decided to become a nurse in hopes to work with children in the pediatric unit.
