I started babysitting when I was 12 years old until age 19. I babysat for infants up to 12 years of age for families with as many four children. I did childcare in my home after I had my two children. I did this for about four years and until my husbands’ work moved us overseas. While living overseas, I helped to set up feeding/clothing points for orphan children. I also lead a weekly Sunday school program for up to 50 children ages ranging from one year to 17 years old at the feeding points. I prepared and taught a Bible lesson and a craft as well as lead a time of singing and games. I also help out in our church nursery for infants up to three year old children. Since returning from living overseas, I have had two Nanny Jobs. 1. I was a Nanny from December 2009 until November 2010 for a 21 month old and a newborn. My duties included caring for the children as well as preparing meals, some laundry and some light housekeeping. 2. I was a Nanny for the same family for the past five years (2011-2016). My duties included: taking the children to and from school/activities, preparing meals, washing children’s clothes, and light housekeeping. My position ended in August of 2016 because the family no longer needed a Nanny.
