I have experience watching children ages 0-8, having been a regular babysitter for one family for two years (2016-present) and when living at home I live with a family who has a 6 year old. I have lived with them since she was 1, and have a lot of experience spending extended periods of time caring for her. I was a summer camp counselor in 2014 where I was one of many counselors who cared for 6-8 year old children for 8 weeks straight, 24/7. I have many cousins who are older than me, and I spent all of my breaks from college babysitting their various children ages 0-4.
I have a BA in theatrical design and production, but would like to go into theatrical education eventually. I have enjoyed caring for children my whole life, and feel that I am a capable and fun nanny/babysitter.
