I have volunteered at a Preschool and Daycare for 6 years along with babysitting. There are 42 children ranging in age from 2 weeks to 6 years. In the past two years, I have been given the privilege of being a teacher. They are a group of children ages 2.9 to 4 years of age, there is about ten of them. I have been teaching them their colors, letters, shapes, and numbers these past few years. Dealing with 42 children can be very stressful but I have found that having a clear schedule, tons of activities, and a lot of flexibility makes life a lot easier. I have also been babysitting for my little cousin since she was seven months old. I watch her once a week, every Friday. When she was three she was given a little sister and playmate. Her sister is now ten months and has joined us in our weekly play. It is a lot harder balancing two children than 42, if you can believe it. Between the babysitting and daycare I have learned to deal with tantrums, asthma attacks, fighting, bullying, and so much more. I am very fortunate to have learned all this early in my life. I have come to love the uniqueness that all children offer and they have really found a place in my heart, I hope I have impacted them as they have impacted me. I know that children will always be a part of my life and I hope they will embrace me as I embrace them.

Holly W. - Seeking Work in Norwell

I have been babysitting for the past 7 years. I have watched kids ranging from 6 months to 15 years of age, including multiples. I like to play with the children outside and keep them active as well as indoor activities such as arts and crafts. During my senior year of high school, I completed a six week internship with a school in Norwell where I worked with kids ranging from 2-6 years old, daily. This past summer, I was a part-time nanny for a family with a 6-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy. I also coach a local youth track program every summer for kids 4-13 years old.
