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.

In the past I have cared for children ranging from 6 months to 12 years and some with special needs or learning disabilities and allergies. I have cared for children through day care, school and individual settings. I have been responsible for brining children to play dates, school events, parties and appointments. I have prepared meals and had to do overnight stays. A lot of the time I have spent babysitting I like to take the kids outside and do fun activities that gage their interests and provide them with a learning experience. I have cared for many families for consecutive years.
