As a previous babysitter, I was maintaining the safety and care of 3 children ages 5, 7, and 9, cleaning up messes, cooking and preparing meals & snacks, getting them to bed, entertaining, ensuring medicine was taken, playing games and getting exercise, reading with the 5 year old, crafts, taking care in case of emergency or accidental scraps and wounds, helping get ready in the morning, and drawing baths. I also worked with a child who was deaf and ensured his hearing aide was taking care of. While volunteering, I lead the playroom for siblings of the kids in the hospital and children who have came out of surgery, are getting treatment, or in recovery. I conduct crafts, games, and activities for the children while they are visiting the hospital. I go around to rooms and hang out with children who are lonely or give the parents a break from watching over their children. I must ensure the children’s safety, clean toys, and follow sanitation rules. I work with babies to kids up to age 16, given that the older kids have access to other teen rooms through my supervision. I communicate with staff in case of emergencies and if I must be notified of any conditions before the kids can play. I have also worked with children who have Autism through volunteering at the xx in Minneapolis. I was one of the leaders and supporters of kids with disabilities, mainly Down syndrome and Autism, in the race. I helped motivate the children to do their best and support them every step of the way. I helped out with various tasks the coordinators needed me for and hung out with the kids the rest of the day.

I have three siblings ranging in ages from three months to 18 years old. I am the oldest out of the three of them. I have been babysitting since the age of nine years old, when I was in classes such as ones through the community that would teach you all about caring for children. I have recently been working for xx for about eight months now with children ranging in ages from four to eighteen. I work with children of disabilities and behavioral problems on a weekly basis. Working with these children and being able to keep smiles on their faces, and changing their lives for the positive, is so extremely rewarding that I have decided I will be pursuing this further in my college education.

I babysat for family friends starting at the age of 12 and babysit, or as I like to call it, hang out with my 5 year niece every chance I get. My brother and niece lived with me for 2 years, from the time she was 1 up to 3. So I have lots of experience around kiddos and I love it. I was CPR certified but did not renew my certification in the last 5 years but I am able to re-certify if need be. I am great with children, being that I am a big kid myself, but I am also very mature. I am currently a full time manager at a retail store, so I am great with stressful situation and I know how to keep things light and fun.
