Started out working in a nursery at a gym, with children ranging in age from newborn to 12 years old. I helped in the baby area often, and did other older kid activities. I ran some summer camps, taught swim lessons, and babysat fir several families from the gym part-time. I ended up moving to Arizona with one of the families from the gym that I babysat for, and was a live-in nanny. After that I moved back to Kansas and was a live-in nanny for a family with the kids. The kids were 8, 4, and newborn when I started. I worked for them for two years until they moved away and decided not to have a nanny anymore. I've worked part-time for some other families since then, but I'm looking for a more permanent full-time position.
