I was first exposed to childcare by my mother, who owned a daycare for many years. after spending hours there I realized that I live children and am gifted with patience for them. Being an active member in church, I volunteered much of my time in the nursery. I spent two consecutive summers as a live-in nanny for a single mother in Iowa. I couldn't begin to count the hours I've spent babysitting for individuals in my community.
