I have been taking care of children since I was about 13. During the summer I would watch my younger brother while my mother would work. I would help out in the nursery at church. I would also babysit for the people that I attend church with when they needed a night out. After high school I was a summer nanny for 2 children whom were wonderful. I was with them for 2 summers. I was a live-in nanny for 1 year and I loved my job. I took care of 3 amazing children and I also helped with the housework. Right now I am a part-time live-out nanny for a friend of the family when ever she needs me. I have been with them almost 3 years. She has 2 children whom I adore. I still babysit quite a bit for the people in my church.

I have been doing Childcare since I was nearly a child myself. I started working in mothers morning out programs where we did Childcare so that moms could have some time together. I have done daily and weekly Childcare with many many families with children of all ages. It has been amazing to see children I kept as babies, who are now in grade school. I'm an artist for a living so I also get to teach children's art classes. I also teach a children's homeschool group from ages 5yrs old to 15yrs old. I adore children and believe they are such a blessing. I can learn from them as much as they learn from me. And the influence I have on the very young generation is important to me.

At this job, I worked with the children 7 days a week. They were two boys, 5 and 10. The 5 year old had high functioning autism and while he could speak, he couldn't speak well. I took them both to separate schools in the morning and picked them up in the evening. I would then stay with them till around 10 pm when their parents would get home. I would have already cooked them dinner, done homework, made sure they showered, and put them to bed. Regularly traveled with the family to help with vacation activities and childcare. Promoted language development skills through reading and storytelling. Safely transported children to and from school, medical appointments and extra-curricular activities. Worked with parents to develop and implement discipline programs to promote positive behavior. Engaged in after-school activities including sport practice and homework. Organized activities that enhanced children's physical, emotional and social well-being. Made healthy snacks and meals for 2 children. Established and maintained a safe play environment for the children. Communicated with parents about daily activities and behaviors. Helped children complete homework assignments and school projects. Engaged with children on an individual basis to build positive relationships with them. It was a very wonderful job that I only left because the family moved and no longer need a nanny.

I am currently finishing up school and I am a part-time nanny for a family with four boys. I do their laundry, light housekeeping, play and read with the children, give baths to the youngest ones, and help the eldest child with his homework. I have also babysat for many families with all different ages of children for about 8 years. I have worked with autistic and adopted children, girls and boys, and I can provide many references. I also nanny-ed for a 2.5 years old girl for a semester and absolutely loved it, but had to quit because of my school schedule interfering. I have worked in the nursery and other age groups at my church ever since I was about age 13. I also took a babysitting safety class when I was 14 years old. I have done weekend nanny-ing/pet sitting jobs and enjoyed that a lot. Furthermore, I am currently in school to become a teacher and am always working with kids and learning more about them!
