I have been a live-in nanny for the past 3 years for a 3,5 and 6 year old (age when I started working for this family). Unfortunately all 3 of them are going to be in schoool full time this August, so I am looking for a full-time position with a new family. Before I was a full-time nanny I was a babysitter on evenings and weekends for a 1 and 4 year old for about a year. Sometimes I watch my friends 1 year old for their datenight. I did a babysitter course when I was 15 and had one week training camp before I became a nanny where I learned all about how to handle different situations, activities, meals, first aid and all kinds of helpful tips with children and babies all ages.
