My past childcare experiences has been very fun and caring. I first started watching my cousins when they were babies. In high school I took a child development course where we had a child care center and we had 20-25 children ages 4-6 there during the week for couple hours a day. I babysat for a family of 3 children for about 3 years - like 40 hrs a week. and I am recently NannYing for a 2 year old boy in my town for 40 hours a week.

Hi, my name is Lily and I am 19 years old and am very interested in being your nanny. I just finished my sophomore year at Assumption College where I am a member of the rowing team and my class Vice President. I have been babysitting since I was in middle school and have also worked at a summer reading program for students who needed help meeting the reading standards for their grade level. In high school I took three courses in child development, one of which included creating lesson plans for nursery school children. My babysitting experience varies but the most challenging job I have had was working with newborn twins, a two year old, and a four year old at once. I also have my own car and a clean driving record.

I am a very caring and engaged babysitter and love coming up with fun things to do with kids. Babysitting is something that I love doing because its so rewarding and makes working fun. I look forward to hearing from you and wish you luck on your search!
