I have been babysitting since I was young starting out with younger cousins and neighbors. In seventh grade I started to baby sit for families in my neighborhood whether it was for a date night or walking their kid to school and home from school. I have also been a nanny for two girls, 5 and 7, for a year now. I have also worked in two day cares, mainly in the infant and toddler rooms, but had experience in all of the rooms up to kindergarten. I was a co-lead teacher at the one day care in the infant room, and I have experience with potty training.
