17.14 / hour
Full-time hours

I have been babysitting since I was 15 years old. I began sitting my little sister, then I started sitting for the neighbor's children: two girls, one was 10 and the other was 12. I did various sitting jobs for many family friends. I have experience with newborns to 13 years old. The most children I have babysat at a time is six. I have experience babysitting for 12 hours in the day. When babysitting I try not to let the children watch too much television. Usually I take them on walks to the park. Reading, board games, and dancing are the activities I try to involve the children I babysit. I have experience with cooking and baking. If needed I can do grocery shopping, picking up children from school, buckling in car seats, and changing diapers. Though I began watching children when I was 15 I am getting paid for it, I have watched children all my life. I was blessed with a family with many children. I can also provide many references.
