I have 18 months professional childcare experience in a day care setting, working with children ages six weeks to six years. Primarily I worked with children age 12 to 20 months and children age three. I was responsible for their complete care, ranging from serving meals to engaging children in a learning environment and supervising play time both in and out of doors. Beyond the day care, I have worked as in-home babysitter for many years for both family members and non family members. I worked as a camp counselor with groups of up to ten girls at once ages 9 to 18. Having also grown up in a large, extended family I am comfortable and capable with children of all ages and have been exposed to all aspects of child care from a young age.
