I have been a full-time nanny for children ranging from ages three to fourteen. I was also a part-time nanny for a family who had an eighteen month old.

Full-time hours

My past childcare experience is working at the Child Development Labs at the University of Connecticut. Here i learned so much more about the development of children and their needs than I would have experienced from just a regular babysitting job. I was responsible for playing with the children, but also using dialogue that would help them learn and expand their minds while playing. I was also responsible for supervising nap time, handing out lunch and being cautious of food allergies for certain children. I also supervised the children while they were playing outside and learned how to reprimand a child correctly by asking them their side of the story how they were feeling and how the child they hurt was feeling, and then having them hopefully learn from the experience. I have also babysat here and there in high school for children ages 4 - 13.
