Becca C. - Seeking Work in Sullivan

22.85 / hour

I have a brother that is 3 years younger than me so growing up I would help out with him. Ever since I was younger I've enjoyed children and have babysat for many families. For a few years I watched two children full-time in the summer and other times necessary. I like to provide the children with fun activities to do instead of boring days. Some of the activities I've done with the kids include taking them to the movies and public pool, also we went to the zoo and an Exotic Big Cat Zoo. I also like to keep my young cousins for weekends, and have done so many times. Also, summer 2010 I went to Hawaii with my cousins and family friends and their, collectively, four children. I went along as a babysitter/nanny and had the best time of my life.
