Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I have worked at a Child Care Center for the past 6 years working with children between the ages of 18 months and 7 years old. Anywhere from basic interactions such as play, talking, reading stories, to preparing them for kindergarten (practicing the alphabet, writing their name, knowing phone the phone number, home address, colors, shapes etc.) In addition, over the past 7 years I have babysat a family with 3 boys starting at the ages of 3 the oldest is now 12yrs old. I have picked them up from school, driven them to practices, watched their games, been there to celebrate birthdays, helped with homework and filled in for their "parent teacher" meetings. Over the summers I have nannyed for the family 5 days a week from 8am to 6pm bringing them to and from camps, practices and preparing dinners. I have also babysat for 3 other families, the time span was short due to age (the eldest child was old enough to watch their little siblings) and location changes.

I have been babysitting since the age of 15 and became a nanny at 20 and have done it through college. After graduation I have pursued a career in outside sales. Which I love but, I do miss being a nanny I adore children and love to watch them grow as they learn new things. I was a nanny for a amazing family that unfortunately had to move away for work. They asked me to go with them but I was unable to do so as I was finishing up college. I would love to get back into where my heart and soul is and that is around children.
