I also have been babysitting children since the age of 14! I am a reliable, active nanny and love to find new ways to get the children up and involved. My past position was caring for a newborn girl as well as a toddler and a preschooler part time, and a 11-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl. I like helping children learn and watching them grow.
