I have over 20yrs experience caring for children. When my son was a toddler I provided childcare in my home with a flexible schedule. I cared for two babies a few mornings a week, two toddlers a few afternoons a week. I picked up a kindergardener a few times a week. When the small ones went home I provided after school care for five children. I provided before school care, meal preparation, snacks, homework assistance and carpool. I provided activities on no school days. I provided a warm loving environment.I would pick a child up from school if sick. I had the experience of caring for some wonderful and bright kids. I have experience with special needs children, including Autistic children. I have experience with multiples, including triplets, twins and multiple sets of twins in a household. I am looking for a full-time family.I also work for a few other families occasionally for night/weekend work. The work is sporatic, so I am also looking for additional families for night/weekend work.

As a young teen I babysat often for neighborhood families and my parent's friends. While in high school and college I had a part time job working in an office and began babysitting for my boss's children on nights and weekends. I eventually began to work full time with the children as their nanny. They were 2 and 3 when I started watching them. I would bathe them, cook for them, take them to and from preschool and other activities. As they got older I would help them with their homework and make sure they kept busy playing with them outside. I soon began to babysit for this family's neighbor. With 4 kids and 3 dogs this was a challenge at first but I think once you get to know a family it all falls into place. Even though I no longer work for these families I'm still close friends with them and feel blessed to have been such a big part of their lives! I have experience with more part time families as well working a day or two during the week or nights/weekends.

I have always been around children of all ages as I have grown up and completely loved it. I come from a very large extended family so there has always been children around. I started babysitting when I was twelve for a family with two boys ages one and four. I continued to babysit for them and got to watch them grow up which was so cool. Along with that I also babysat for a family with four children ranging from ages four to eleven. When I was in seventh grade my mom had a baby boy and that has been the greatest experience I have had. Being with a child for a couple of hours a day is great, but when you live with one you are given every possible situation. This has taught me so much about every different age. I have witness and experienced what to do in many situations and how precious and loving children are.

I have been a nanny/mother's helper with my previous family,of four children, for three years. It was a great source of income while attending college. I have always enjoyed children and have taken many courses regarding child development. Now I'm working on my real estate license and have realized how much I miss raising children. I currently babysit for various families while the parents go on vacations for weekends.
