I have been babysitting informally for family and family friends since I was 11 years old and that's when I knew I had to go into childcare! I joined a nanny service while I was in college and did various babysitting jobs through them, and eventually found a job as a full time nanny for a 3 month old and a 3 year old with autism. I worked with the family for a year, providing childcare, building and implementing a daily schedule, preparing meals and doing light housework.
