Hello, I absolutely love children. This was my first "job" I ever had. An I absolutely loved it. I started at the age of 11 babysitting for my first cousin, she had at the time 3 kids. She had one 3 year old and new born twins. The twins were 3 months premature so they needed a lot of canning I helped her day and night and when she had to go back to work I was the one who watched them. She them had two more kids down the road. I still watch the younger two sometimes. I have babysat for all my cousins threw out the years. I'm currently babysitting for my sister and first cousin right now while they are working. I'm watching 4 little girls the ages of 2,18,21 months old and the oldest is 3. I take her to preschool and pick her up from preschool also. I just got done with dental assisting school this past February and had been a dental assistant since last year October 2014 and had recently quit this past August because I am trying to move to Utah. So nanny/babysitting is something I am always had a loving passion for. And if the criteria's fit for what you were looking for I would love to watch your children! Thank you! (:

I have been babysitting for a good 10 years. I have watched children from 4 weeks to 13.Most the of experience I had was in the afternoons and evenings. I prepared meals and put the children to bed. I have also spent nights with families and took on the role as mom for the night. I was part of the preschool program at my high school a few years back. I prepared lesson plans and implemented them. I also will work with the children in the labs at the college I am attending as part of my major.

I am kind, loving, patient, warm heart. I Love taking care of children, seeing them grow everyday and learning new things is absolutely amazing to me. I also love teaching kids how to count, learn their ABC's, colors, and as they get older love helping them with their homework if needed. I am also great when it comes to calming babies down when they get fussy, good at putting them to sleep, also good at putting toddlers or older kids to bed. I am great with interacting with kids and getting them to interact with me. I am a great nanny because I treat, respect, love and care for them like they are my own but making sure I don't over step my boundaries with their parents roles.
