My experience in childcare has been wonderful! I started babysitting when I was 11 and have done it on and off ever since, always enjoying being with kids and making sure the home stays in order while the parents are away or at work. I've taken care of babies, toddlers, young children, and teenagers, and they all bring a different level of fun to the job! I'm okay with any kids any age! For the past three years, I have been a nanny for a remarkable family. Their needs have changed recently, and they no longer need me to the extent they did. I started with that family when the first little boy was three months old. Now he's three, and his little brother is a year and a half. It's been three of the craziest years of my life! We have done so much together, we have traveled so much together, and we've been through some tough times together. I can't believe how close I've become to them, and I can only say that I want that kind of experience to continue. I'm not interested in coming and keeping your kids occupied for the day. Whether I'm with you temporarily for a couple of weeks, or for years, I want to make a difference. I want to support the structure you as parents have built and do everything I can to make your family as healthy as it can be. I'm happy to run errands, help around the house, make meals, and put myself into whatever system I can so that when mom and dad come home, everything is taken care of and they can build their relationships with their children. I am always so happy to accommodate a family's ever changing needs. In return, I need a family to accommodate me so I can stay healthy too. I grew up in a very healthy family and doing what I can to share that is something I'm very passionate about.

Hi! I grew up taking care of and playing with my 13 younger cousins. Because of this experience I was able to get a paid summer nanny job watching 3 children a few years ago, and I still visit them occasionally. At age 13-15 I volunteered for a Christian organization that enables parents to hire a babysitter last minute. I have had many experiences where parents will call and ask me to babysit. I volunteered two weeks at a summer camp to care for first, second and fourth graders. This consisted of cooking, playing games doing activities, putting them to bed, waking them up and spending lots of quality time with them. Because of all my experience, I have realized the responsibilities that come with taking care of children. Some of these responsibilities are safety, dressing, bathing, cooking, supervision and cleaning. I believe it is extremely important to respect the parents desires on how to raise their children. I am cheerful, and I greatly enjoy taking care of children. Some of the activities I do with them are reading, going on walks with them, helping with homework and overseeing playtime.

I have been babysitting since I was 12 and started taking on nanny positions since I was 16. I am known for being very good with children. My past experience is all positive. When I've been a nanny in the past its been more like I'm part of the family, it feels like I'm an aunt. I have had children who try to challenge me a little bit but in the end they are the children that grow the most attached. probably because I love on them and I don't get angry, in those cases all a child truly needs is to know that you care!
