Annie H. - Seeking Work in Apple Valley

I have been babysitting and nannying since I was 13 years old. I watch a lot of different families in my hometown and I can honestly say I love every single one of them. They all bring so much joy in my life! I have never been in a situation where I have had a problem with a family. Communication with the parents and children is very important for me to know what is best for the child. Every family that I have been with has taught me different things and I enjoy becoming part of their family!

I have been babysitting ever since i can remember. I started out as a nannies helper when i was just 12 or 13 and helped out with everything feeding the babies, making food, playing with the kids and even helped bring them places, i did that for 3-4 years. I have also babysat neighborhood kids and a family that had four kids including twin girls that have Cystic Fibrosis, with having kids in the family with that i had to be on top of their medications and treatments every time I was there. I have worked in an in-home daycare for a summer when i was out of school and helped out with just about everything including getting meals ready, playing outside, bringing them to the near by pool, arts and crafts, and getting them settled down for quiet time. In high school I took a child development class and learned how to organize activities, arrange snacks, how different ages act and develop and more. I've enjoyed every experience I have had and i'm looking forward to a new experience and learning new things along the way.

I started babysitting by just helping out my uncle's wife, when she had her first baby, when i was 11. I just helped her while she was home by herself during the day. I would feed the baby, change him and help out with little things she needed. Throughout the years, as i got older, i started to watch my neighbors 5 kids, while they went out for occasional late night dinners and when they ran errands. I was then a nanny for a summer, for my cousin's 9 year old. My recent experience babysitting/nannying includes watching two wonderful families kids. One family has a 2 year old and a 7 year old and the other family has a 18 month old and a baby on the way. I have been helping out both families for about 8 months now.
