I have been working with kids for about six years now! I have been babysitting since I was 12, and started nannying when I was in high school. I nannied for a family in texas for a 5 month old, and a two and a half year old. Before moving to Columbus I was working in the toddler room at a pre school, but I would float through all the other class rooms throughout the day. I am comfortable with all ages. I also have experience with special needs. I nannied for quadruplets with down syndrome, and went to school with kids who had disabilities.

My last childcare experience was watching two children, a 4 year old, and a 2 year old for one year. Everyday from Monday through Friday I would go to their house and feed them a snack. Then we would go outside in their backyard, and let them run around and play for an hour or so. The both of them had a lot of toys so we would do different things everyday. Outside of the mothers to do list. Unfortunately I had to relocate from Florida to Georgia so my job ended. I love kids and I really enjoy my job.
