I have nannied for a family with a 9 month old boy and 7 year old girl for over 5 years now, it used to be full time but is now just once in a while on the weekends. I do tons of babysitting and have many references. I am always very close with the families and especially the children I babysit for. They will always feel loved and have ALL of my attention, I LOVE children and am going to school to teach 1st grade. I'm in school Mondays and Wed's, this is why on the list those days are not listed. But other than that I have full availability! I have a great car, FL drivers license, and love playing outside, swimming, bike riding, just doing outdoor activities. With the family I nannied for the longest our routine was a half hour of TV after baths or showers and dinner (as long as it was eaten for the most part lol) and then I would read 2 books I would let them pick out. I love reading to the kids, I love seeing the reactions on their faces and how excited they get over a car story or a princess story. I'm either going to major in elementary education or im leaning more towards being a child psychiatrist. I would love to help children with any problems or just be there for them with any problems in their life and help them figure out how to get better and make things better so their happy. My main goa is to always make sure the children are happy, but without being a push over or TOO easy going, then they will know after the first day, YES! We got one we can run all over, my sister and I were kids once lol, I remember doing sneaky things with certain babysitters who never paid much attention.

I started babysitting for a family when I was sophomore in high school, 2 children ages 7 and 10. As a freshman in college I babysat for 2 children everyday after school. I would pick them up from their elementary school, drive them to their home and be with them until their parents arrived home from work. I have also worked with an after school program for underprivileged children for the past 2 years.

I started in my church in the children's ministry and that evolved into babysitting for the church and at peoples homes about 4 years ago. Recently I've been sticking with one family which now we practically consider each other family. I've know them for about 2 years and they have two kids, a daughter who is 8 and a son who is 11. I am so close with those kids and I stay over there from time to time when the kids want me to. I would do anything for them. I am pretty much a parents helper...or nanny to them.
