Hourly rate9.99 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I am 21 years old and have been doing random babysitting jobs since I was 14. I have experience with newborns all the way to grown up kids. I am good at entertaining and love to play with kids. I am very active and like to play during the day, not just sit around and watch television. I do have experience with overnight stays. I had watched a young 2-year-old for 4 days while the parents were out of town. I took her to the zoo, took her swimming, and took her out to eat as if she were my own child. I absolutely love to babysit all ages, and I am going to college to be a neonatal nurse.

I love kids and hope to expand my own family in the future! My daughter doesn't have many kids in our area to play with so this would be an amazing experience for both of us!
