I have been a babysitter since I was 11 years old. I've taken many first aid and babysitting classes in order to acquire skills needed. I've looked after multiples, children of all ages, children with different needs (such as children with asthma and ADHD), children who had no siblings and large groups of children. I've taught preschool classes during high school and I've been a nursery assistant for 3 years.

I've been a regular caregiver for a family in South Barrington for 7 years for 3-4 children (their cousin was back and forth, officially adopted 3 years ago)...I started when the children were 9 monthes, 2 yrs and 5 yrs old. Now, the kids are 8 yrs old, 11 yrs old and 14 yrs old. I'm still very close with the family, occassionally watch them when needed...usually when parents go on trips without the kids, also when 2 parents isn't enough to keep up with the kids after school activities. They are much older now, so... I'm def. not needed often. I've had the kids for up to a week at a time on my own while parents go out of town. I've done everything from being a stand-in as the parent at school recitals, doctor appts, bday parties, sports practices & games, I go to about every family party since I am practically family now, I do pretty much anything and everything the parents do.
