I've only babysat for money for a handful of families, probably totaling around 80 hours of experience. I have always had excellent feedback and references. The majority of my experience with children has come from my own family and volunteer work at my church--too many hours to count. At church, my tasks have included preparing food and drink, supervising, coordinating small groups of kids, setting up, cleaning up, planning, leading small groups of kids, performing skits, leading games, leading worship, accompanying kids on outings, teaching lessons, playing with kids, etc. At home, I've done everything from changing diapers and giving baths to changing brake pads on the family vehicles (true story--I am versatile!), scrubbing kitchens and bathrooms, and making pizza from scratch (dough and all!).

My experience caring for children started at a fairly young age. My mom passed away when I was only 16 years old, leaving my dad behind with myself and my two younger brothers (aged 14 and 11) to care for. As the eldest child, I had to step up and help care for my brothers my junior and senior years of high school. Things like helping cook meals, clean the house, do laundry, help with their studies, and oversee their involvement in extra curricular activities became the norm. I would help drive them to sports practices and school as well. I have also helped babysit my younger cousins (aged 4-12) when family has been in town over the holidays, completing similar care as to that above, and my college advisor's daughter (age 7) during my time in college.

I have been babysitting for eight years. I have the most experience babysitting young children, newborn - 6 years, but I have experience with children up to 16. I babysat my younger brother from the time he was seven, and I occasionally watch him on the weekends now. I babysat a 12-year-old boy and his 9-year-old sister every day after school for six months, providing homework help and meals. I was a nanny for three years for a family of three children. When I started babysitting for them, the youngest was a newborn, the middle was 5 years old, and the oldest was 7. The oldest had ADHD, so I have experience working with children who have attention problems. I have babysat several other children for single date night jobs, their ages ranging from newborn to 6 years. I was a camp counselor for two years for preteens, and I was the assistant soccer coach for coed elementary teams for two years. I have, in the past, cooked meals, helped with homework, played sports, done laundry, and cleaned the house for families I have babysat for. I am willing to continue providing these things. In addition, I provided overnight care for a newborn several times, until he was around 4 months old.

Besides raising and even homeschooling 3 of my own children (of which they are all grown and almost all off to college), I have worked with children from infancy up to 18 years+ in the sport of gymnastics (teaching life lessons as I teach the sport) for the past 25 years. I am 1st aide certified, safety certification qualified, and have undergone back ground checks as well. My children's successes and those that I have coached have been great and have given them paths to a rewarding life. I have also dabbled in the teachings of sports psychology with my students (and my children) that have aided them in their abilities to understand the emotional and mental aspects of growing up.
