I have done extensive childcare throughout high school and college. While I mostly have done night-time sitting, I have also done overnights, weekends, house-sitting and have been on call for specific families for day-time sitting. In addition to occasional sitting, I also sat and cleaned for a single mother of three pre-teen boys from August 2010 to April 2012. My responsibilities included meal preparation, assisting the boys in homework, both general housekeeping and deep cleaning, organization, laundry, enforcing bedtime and rules, and keeping the boys entertained. Further, my childcare experience includes working for 7 years at a summer camp. From 2003-2007 I held the position of Counselor in Training. Under this role I built relationships with campers, assisted in program execution, and stayed in a cabin with the campers under the supervision of an adult Counselor. From 2010-2011 I held the position of Cabin Counselor at the same camp, where my primary responsibilities were caring for 8-11 girls, building relationships with them, and assisting in program execution.
