I have been babysitting for fifteen years for many different families. Currently, I am a nanny for three wonderful children: a six year old boy, a four year old girl and a twenty month little boy. I have been with all of them since they were babies. Before that, I was a nanny for another family until the child went to preschool.

I have cared for many families since I was 16, but I have cared for one particular family for the past 6 years. There are 4 children ages 5, 6, 8, and 10. I started caring for them when the oldest was just 4 years old. I feel very comfortable caring for larger families because I have done it for the past 6-7 years.

I have been babysitting for over six years now. I have worked with children ranging between the ages of two months in 18 years old. This is always been something I have enjoyed doing. My duties as a babysitter/nanny included everything from bringing the children to school doctors' appointments, sports practices, or games, as well as getting them ready for school, taking care of them during the day, lots of meal making, going to the park, helping them clean up their rooms and pretty much everything else. I love being outdoors with the children, taking them on adventures and doing fun things to see them smile. I have also traveled with families out of the country on vacation and I have stayed with the children for a week when the parents have gone away. The most children I have care for at one time is five! All ranging from the ages of two months to 10 years old!
