I have been in the childcare industry for 20+ years.I started as a live in nanny at a very young age for 2 wonderful girls ages 7 and 9. From there I did childcare in my home for infants through 12- This consisted of before and after care for school age children and daily care for under 5. I ventured in to a nanny position again for a live out position for a toddler and 5 year old. After this I worked for the public school system for 9 years while obtaining my AA degree in ECE(duties included: personal assistant to a child with Asperger's, teachers aide, cafeteria aide, and curriculum organizer. I moved on to working with large groups of children educating them on the history of the ships that are docked in Baltimore. I also wrote the programming and educational curriculum for these groups of up to 100 children. I decided to continue in the non profit world and work where I helped adults with disabilities live and maintain viable lives within our community. Currently and for the past 7 years I have been in the childcare industry. I have taught ages 6 weeks through school age as well as directed and ran a childcare center for 3 of those years. I care for my own children some of which are grown now. In reference to babysitting- I have cared for children since I was old enough to do so.

I am india a mother of 3 beautiful children who are now 5, 3, & 5 months old i have grown up in a big family with lots of babies & kids always running around so I'm very use too all the tasks, attention & commitments it takes to help raising a child. I love being around children in general because they are our future & helping a child progress into a law abiding citizen one day is going to help our society & the child themselves! Keeping in mind they are children & age Appropriate tasks & rules are too be used with each individual child & the fact that we all make mistakes but also them knowing someone is always there for them gives me happiness knowing they know they can trust me & love me as much as I love them I'm trying too find a family that knowing I'm a mom too can allow me too have my children with me as well as I help your child grow with you too! Thank you
