I started my childcare experience ten years ago. I have have been responsible for the well being of a family of four children, a boy (four), a girl (two), and a pair of twin boys (three months old). I would watch them on a daily basis during the summer and on the weekends throughout the year. I was solely responsible for the well being and safety of the children in the absence of their mother and father. I continued caring for this family for six years until I left home for college. I also have experience caring for both mentally and physically handicapped children assisting both them and their families in daily activity and emotional structure. I have been entrusted to care for children on an overnight basis on multiple occasions. I also have been responsible for the transportation of some children back and forth from sports, school, and other commitments.
