Melissa V. - Seeking Work in Scotch Plains

8.60 / hour

I have had many years of experience dealing with children of all ages. No matter what the age of the child, they always seem to bond to me very quickly. Within hours, I have a new best friend. We laugh, play and be silly together. We go to the park, create arts and craft projects, work on homework and other learning techniques that are appropriate for the child's age. I am a fun loving and caring person who treats each child I care for as my own. I always consider all the kids like brothers and sisters even long after I am no longer their caretaker.

I have been babysitting for the past six years. I have babysat an autistic child and I have babysat both boys and girls from the ages of three to thirteen. I was a sleep away camp counselor for the past three summers.
