While I don't have profession childcare experience, I do have a lot of experience with taking care of children. Ever since I was young I have always loved children, I began watching children at a young age. I began watching children during parent meetings at school back when I was in 5th grade, I also use to watch one of the teachers children at her home on occasion, back then she had a new born and a 2 year old. I have watched many of my mothers friend's children as well as my friend's children in the past. I have little exoerience in watching disabled kids, but that is something I have also done. When watching the diabled boy I also watched his siblings, got them off the bus, and made them dinner. I also have current experience in childcare as I have my own child who I spend most of my time home with.
