Being brought up in a large family allowed me to grow up caring for children of all ages, from babies to pre-teens. My mother was a wonderful preschool/daycare provider for 14 years, and I would help her quite often throughout that time. I'm proud to say that I've learned from the best. I've been babysitting for many years and have always enjoyed being close to the families and watching the kids grow up.
