When i was 16 i started nannying/babysitting for two children 2 and 6 weeks for 6 years,3 and 4 days a week. Now they are 14 and 12 years old. From this day i occasionally watch them and are close friends of the family still. I stopped watching them because i wanted to experience working at daycares and i have become attached to the children and there families. In March of 2008 i was a nanny for two children ages two and nine months old until May of 2009 when they had to move out of state. In December of 2009 i started watching a family with three children ages four,two and six months,I am still with them to this day but in August we will be parting our ways because two of the three children will be in school full time in first grade and kindergarten.The youngest will be three years old when i leave in August and will be placed in a child care program. Ever since i could remember i have always enjoyed working with children and couldn't imagine my life without children being in it.

My Childcare experience has all been through babysitting. I started in highschool regularly babysitting for 2 kids and this continued on an as needed bases and when I was home from college. I also had some not as regular babysitting jobs through out the years. I am also the oldest of 4 kids. So growing up I took on a lot of household and babysitting duties for my own family. I have a younger brother who is only 10 months older then my younger twin sisters so there was always something to do to help my mom.

My most recent childcare experience was with triplet newborns and their toddler big brother. I was with the children from when they got up in the morning until they went to bed most nights. Before then I was nannying for twin 8 year olds and their 10 year old brother. Growing up I was always babysitting either cousins ( I have 18 younger cousins) or neighbors. I have lots of experience with a variety of age groups.
