I've been babysitting since I was 12 years old, so I have 7 years of experience. I have worked with a variety of ages, from 5 months to 13 years old. Last year, I frequently watched a 1 year old several times a week. I got to experience so many different milestones in his life over the few months: learning to crawl, walk, and talk. I love working with younger children especially because everything is so new and exciting for them! I have also been watching a now-23 month old cousin since he was 5 months old and have enjoyed watching him grow up! Last summer, I was also a nanny for 4 kids ages 5,6,9, and 12 for 5 days a week. Often, the kids would have their friends over so there were sometimes up to 6 or 7 kids, so I have experience working with lots of children! This job gave me a lot of experience in working in hectic situations, and I would now say that one of my strengths is remaining calm in stressful situations. We would always do fun activities like going to the humane society, going to the park, or going to the pool. I love the outdoors, doing crafts, and going on fun adventures. I'm also a pretty flexible person, so I can go along with whatever your children are interested in doing! This summer, I am nannying for a 7 year old girl and a 9 year old boy, 5 days a week. We often go to the park, the pool, the movies, or spend time playing games or creating things at their house.

I have been babysitting since I was about 10 for family and friends. My first job when I was 16 through when I was 18 was at a day care where I mostly worked with the one and a half year olds, but I was also flexible and moved to other rooms when they needed me to. The summer after my senior year of high school, I worked at an outdoor sports day camp where I worked with about 7 or 8, 4-6 year olds all summer. I babysat regularly all throughout college where I studied and obtained a degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia College. I was in a 1st grade classroom for a year and a half but also have experience in Kindergarten, 2nd grade and 4th grade. This past summer I nannied 2 girls aged 7 and 8 for a few weeks. It was a single parent home so I would help out most of the day, even with the mom at home. The girls and I would travel all over the state, riding MARTA to the zoo, aquarium, and other fun Atlanta places. I was sad to see the family move to Florida because I truly enjoyed getting to be in their family for a few weeks and I really loved getting to spend so much time with the girls!

I have been a babysitter and nanny for families in my neighborhood since 2007. I also had a job at the daycare center working with children ranging in 6 weeks old to 13 years of age. I worked at the day care from 2012-2014 and couldn't continue because I am living in Athens this summer rather than my hometown of Lawrenceville. I am a middle grades education major at the University of Georgia and love children. I plan on being a teacher after college and plan on getting my masters in Early Education as well. I also volunteer at the center and would love to help with school work if necessary. I am comfortable with pets and love to be outside and playing with the kids. I am comfortable with looking after multiple children at one time as well.

I am 21 and currently a junior studying Geology at the University of Georgia. I've been babysitting since I was 13, and I have watched children, ages 6 months to 13 years old. Two years ago I worked as a nanny at a summer camp in upstate New York for 7 weeks. I cared for a 4-year-old girl for 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. A few days a week, I would also watch a 14-month-old and a 5-year-old girl. I was a great experience and taught me so much about childcare, and patience! I constantly had to come up with new tasks for us to have fun with. Last summer I was a full time nanny for three boys, ages 9, 11, and 13, and one girl, age 9 for around 8 hours a day, 4 days a week. I can go from singing, dancing, baking, and arts and crafts with girls, to sports and video games with boys. I love being outdoors and going on adventures!
