I have never had the privilege of being a nanny before, as circumstances (mainly college) had prevented me, but would love to have the opportunity now that I am done with school. It has been a few years since I have worked closely with kids in a childcare capacity, but I babysat throughout highschool, and the year after I graduated highschool I lived briefly in Mexico with my family and worked alongside them at an orphanage in Tepic, Nayarit, which housed kids of varying ages, from 3 to 13 years old. During a several week stretch I personally stayed in the girls' dorm with my dad, and we cared for the 10+ girls there while their dorm parents were gone (I was primarily responsible for them, he was present as "back-up" :). I got them up in the mornings, got them ready for school, helped them with homework in the afternoons, got them ready for bed at night, and sang them to sleep. During college I volunteered several times in Sunday school and babysitting at church, and worked mainly with toddlers or very young children. Last summer, after graduating college, I had the opportunity to work with my family's church in the capacity of youth leader, and was responsible to organize and lead youth group (which consisted mainly of middle-school age kids) on a weekly basis. We did lessons and played games, and I picked the kids up from their houses and dropped them off afterwards.
