I have experience with children of all ages. I raised four children, (one son, three daughters; ages now are 27, 26, 19 and 19). I started babysitting at age 12 for several families in my neighborhood and church. I sat for children ranging in age from newborn to early teens and the number of children ranged from one to four. I worked part time for Kid's Nite Out 2002-2004. I was a nanny for a family when their son was age 3 months to 20 months and am in constant contact with them as they consider me a part of their family. I have also been a substitute teacher for elementary, middle and high schools.
