My past child care experience has been amazing. I have babysat for three wonderful families. I started out babysitting my neighbors child and then she had twins. It was crazy at first but turned out to be a very rewarding and fun job. I stayed with them until the twins were too old for a babysitter. I started another sitting job while working with the my neighbor. This job consisted of watching a newborn, a one year old and a three year old. I also accompanied them on family outings. I was with this family for about 3 years. Through this job I was introduced to a family friend and started watching a newborn and a three year old. I was only with this family for about a year (due to family moving in with them). For the past 3 years I have been a nanny for a now 3 year old boy and his now 1 year old sister (I started when he was 3 months and have been with his sister basically from day one). It has been an amazing experience!

I have been babysitting children for 7 years ranging from ages as young as a few months old to 12 years old age. Most of the families I have babysat for have 2 or more children. I have experience babysitting multiples (twins) as well. Last summer, I was a nanny Monday-Friday all day for 3 children. I was responsible for preparing meals, bathing, disciplining, entertaining and driving to children to activities.

I have grown up working with children. I started at my church helping and leading the children's church. From there I moved onto babysitting positions. I was probably around 15 when I got my first babysitting job. Since then I have continued to work in the child service at my church and have worked for families. I also have experience from working at a daycare through my junior and senior year of high school. I have worked with all ages of children including newborns up to about age 13. I have also cared for more then one child at a time at many different age levels.
