my most recent childcare experience was a year ago caring for a five-month boy. prior to that I cared for an infant boy full-time, 7 hours a day. I am a natural caretaker and love to be around children. i am very energetic and creative and my children and i had great fun, while learning at the same time. The children i cared for grew to care for me deeply, and I for them. I hope that I can have the opportunity to meet with your family. thank you.
