I have babysat all my life since I was 12. I worked as a preschool teacher in a daycare for children of all ages. My class was 12-24 months. However I was often with the infants as well. I was a pick up teacher, meaning that once the littles were picked up I would move on to other age groups all the way up to kindergarten. My latest experience is being a nanny of 2. I started when the youngest was 10 months old and the oldest was 3. Now the oldest just turned 5 and the youngest is 3.
