I started babysitting for family friends when I was eleven. Since then I have babysat for numerous families. Within these families there were various ages and numbers of children. I also worked at a local daycare for a summer. The daycare had children ages infant to thirteen. I also spent a summer in Cameroon, Africa working with children of all ages at an orphanage. There, I creatively entertained the children while teaching them English and math. I am currently studying Elementary Education, and will be graduating from my program this June - I will have a teaching license before needing a summer position.

I have cared for children of all different ages ranging from newborn-11 years old. I cared for my friends newborn baby while she was attending school. I cared for a family friends 2 year old son for a couple years and also babysat for two young boys ages 5 and 11. I have plenty of experience with taking the children out of the home to go to the park, swim, etc. I also do housekeeping and meal prep as well. I also have a 4 month old daughter myself, so I have plenty of experience caring for her as well.
