Throughout High School I frequently babysat for family friends and neighbors. I sometimes cared for babies, sometimes toddlers, sometimes pre teens. I enjoyed my time with all ages. I have a unique situation where my little brother was born when I was 13. I have lived with him since then. I took care of him a lot. I babysat him all the time and I have been left with him for extended periods of time. I have been there for 11 years of his upbringing and I have learned a ton about the care of a child just from being around that! Besides that I have a passion for working with children. I spent a summer working at a summer camp and lived in a cabin with children. One month I spent with thirteen eleven year old girls, and the second month I spent with six Thirteen year old girls! We had a blast! I have also spent the last two years touring with a Children's Theatre and working with Children ages 5-18 all over the country.

I grew up in a family of 8 children so I have always been surrounded by children. I started babysitting for church and neighborhood families when I was 9. I consistently had babysitting jobs up to this year (I'm 21 years old). I also lived with my aunt and uncle and their five children aged 5 - 14 for two years and provided a lot of care for them including babysitting, cleaning, and preparing meals for the family. I love being with children and seeing them grow and learn and experience the world around them. Some of my interests include music (I sing and play the piano, cello, and a little guitar), reading, learning new things, being outdoors and enjoying time with my wonderful new husband. I also have 2 nieces and 3 nephews who I've spent many hours entertaining and loving. Loving and caring for children has been a huge part of my life since I was a small girl and will continue on for the rest of my life. I've never been a formal nanny or long term caregiver but I would love the opportunity to learn and grow with a new family!

The first family I nannied for I cared for a 2yr old( from newborn), four and six year old. Amazing boys, they were very active and it kept me on my toes, I was in the best shape of my life being a part of their active lifestyle. I followed a daily routine from one activity to the next, but this is something that I would continue throughout my career as a nanny. After they moved to California, I cared for a nine month old, and eighteen month old. Its kind of funny because I transitioned from an active lifestyle to the "no-cry" solution, where this children are very sensitive, and taking care of them though not easy enjoyed it to the fullest. I now care for a eighteen month old, four, and six year old. The kids are amazing and well-mannered. Unless they are sick, they truly listen and are a pleasure to babysit. I am moving to the boston area, and am looking for a position closer to where I would live. I am committed until June, and would like to fulfill my commitment.

I have babysat since I was 12. I looked after my baby sister for many years. At 14 I babysat for a little 5 year old and her one year old brother, for a couple of years. During the summers, I would take care of a couple of different 1-2 year olds, and nannied for an 8 year old girl one summer, which included spending the night, driving her to her house near Boston, and taking her to the beach and downtown Rockport. I also looked after a 4 year old boy and his infant sister in Washington Dc. Sometimes the parents would go out of town for a week or so and I would have full responsibility of them for that time.

I come from a large Family where i was always left in charge to take care of the younger children/cousins. I was also given the opportunity to help out with close neighbors and other family friend's families. It was a pleasure watching their kids as much as it was fun for me to be there and interact with all sorts of children.

My past childcare experience was working in a daycare it was awesomee!!! first I worked with the toodlers in a ratio of 8 children for one teacher, then I got the opportunity to work with the 3 and 4 year old class. It is amazing to be there for them in this early age when they start growing and getting knowledge of the world around them !
