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.
