I've had 10 years experience babysitting/nannying for children with ages ranging from infant to 12+, with moderate housekeeping and pet care. My responsibilities were general care for the children, preparing food, bathing, homework assistance, pick up and drop off duties, chaperoning play dates, beach visits and park days. I would drive the children to their after school activities and run errands for the parents. I would be responsible for keeping the house tidy, vacuuming on occasion, doing dishes or folding laundry, etc.
