Hi my name is Holly and I have been babysitting for about 12 years plus.When I was younger I watched 4 children on a daily basis when they came home from school until 8:00pm. I helped them with thier homework, fed them dinner, bathed the children, and put them in bed. I would also babysit on the weekends for a family who had a handicapped son. I helped with all of the above and made sure he recieved all of his medication. I also have experience watching my younger cousins. Before and after I graduated highschool I worked at Elmentry School for Summer School 3rd graders.I've also worked with children new born to 12yr.
