Full-time hours

I got my first job as an babysitter in the age of 13. I took care of my neighbor`s children. Then I helped for a voluntary social project for three years. We always met two times a week for two hours and organized games and activities for school children in the age of 5-12. Mostly we played for one hour and then we went to the barn. I was one of 4 people in charge and had always a good time. At this time I was taking care of a 2 years old boy in my neighbor`s town too. I spend time with him once or twice a week for two years. We mostly spend the whole day outside and explored the nature, he loved to read books, puzzles, listen to music and dance and to paint. I also always took care of my cousin`s son. He was the first time I took care of him 6-month-old and is now nearly 4.

Hello I have been a paid babysitter since I was thirteen years old. I have watched one to 5 children at once. The family I babysat the most for consisted of three boys. I have also been babysitting my neighbors daughter since she was less then a year old so I do have experience with babies. I myself have two younger sisters I watched while my parents went out. I have babysat for numerous families and could supply recommendations.

Three years teaching preschool, four years as a substitute teacher. In addition to babysitting when I was younger, and being a part-time nanny while in college, I was an Arts and Crafts Director at a leading summer camp, and before that, a counselor for several years (ages 8-15). For the past few years, I have worked as a teacher, in the home of a xx High School Student, and as a substitute teacher on the elementary level. I have also taught private art classes, after school.
