I started caring for children when I was 10 years old. I went to a Red Cross babysitting class and became a certified babysitter. Since then, I have taken care of many children from infants to kindergarteners. In high school, I took a child development and care class and passed with flying colors. I still use what I learned actively. Every family I have babysat for has made me their primary babysitter. I have never met a kid I didn't like and/or didn't like me. When I am scheduled to care for a child, I come up with fun activities to keep them happy and active. I am kind and patient with children of all ages. I believe in positive reinforcement, redirection, and gentle discipline when necessary. I learn things quickly and adapt easily to most situations. No matter what situation I am put in with a child, I adapt and do what I can to be what that child needs. I love all living beings, but especially children. If you choose me to take care of your child, I understand how massive the responsibility is and will do everything I can to do right by you and your child. I can't wait to meet some wonderful families and help out with child care, among other things. Thank you for reading. -Sierra

I started babysitting with my brother when I was about 12 and still babysit to this day (not with my brother :)). I worked at a day care center for 3 years in all 3 departments, but my favorite was the preschool room! Children are such a blessing. I became a nanny several years ago, loved the flexability and consistancy it provided, and loved becoming a part of the family. I also have 4 neices and 2 nephews whom I absolutely adore! I became a sub as a paraprofessional in 3 school districs for all ages and all types of children, mainly special ed, for a couple of years after my previous nanny kids grew up and began school. I loved the challenge and learned so much!

It was lovely watching two children under the age of 5. They were very creative and always made my day a little better with playing pretned. They were very rambunctious though so I had to be on my toes every second of the day.
