My experience in childcare is extensive. For the majority of my adolescence, I had several babysitting positions, varying from watching infants to caring for toddlers and older children, including ones with disabilities (autism or Down's Syndrome) or behavioral problems (ADHD). I continued babysitting throughout college, as time permitted, and this has included babysitting a family of three girls (ages 3, 5 and 7) as well as infants. As a nanny, I spent my summer with two boys (ages 5 and 10), and was responsible for their daily routines/activities, based on the parents' preferences as well as activities I had planned. Oftentimes, in both babysitting and nanny positions, I have been responsible for light cleaning and cooking, as well as caring for pets. I also spent some time as a camp counselor for teenagers, which has allowed me to interact with adolescents as well. My most recent experience was in the Summer 2011. I was a nanny for two children, a boy (5) and a girl (7).

I've been babysitting ever since I was 13 years old; starting with family then it becoming almost like a job. I've babysat children ranging from infants to 13-year-olds. In high school I was part of a Future Educators program where 2 hours out of the school day I'd travel to elementary schools to assistant teach in classrooms. Within that program I taught kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade and 5th grade so I'm also able to help tutor children and help with school work. I've always had a love for children and now have a 1-year-old daughter myself. I'm currently employed with Utica Community Schools working as a SACC Director, which is their before and after school program as well as a paraprofessional during the school day assisting in a special needs classroom.

My experience with childcare goes all the way back to 7th grade. My mother was a nannie of a foster family. I assisted her in a house of 2 children. My mother was also a care giver for special needs kids and I assisted her with all those assignments. I have stayed weeks in homes assisting my mom with childcare. I've also worked assignments on my own. My husband and I decided to go into business as a nanny because he can provide the janitorial and I can provide awesome childcare. My husband is the second oldest out of 6 boys. He has plenty of experiance with children as well. We also are youth leaders at out church. We can provide you the best of both worlds; happy children and a clean house to return to.
