I've been watching kids since I was about 12, it started out with just family members and my own siblings! My mom had her own Daycare center and after my mom closed it to go work for the school, I had parents asking me to watch their kids for date nights or weekend getaways! I've always had a passion for kids, after I graduated high school I enrolled in Kansas State University to pursue an Elementary Educational degree, after graduating there I came back and worked as a para-educator at my small town school in Jackson County! When the school year ended I was asked by a student's parent if I would be interested in a full time nanny position and I gladly excepted! I worked for them throughout that summer and following school year!
