I have been babysitting for the past 10 years starting with family and cousins and have since expanded babysitting for anyone who has needed my services. The youngest I have babysat for was a 3 week old infant. From that age up does not bother me and I can handle any age. During the summer I used to work at a day camp with the preschool aged children and up. I have done this for the past eight years and I have worked with many different types of children including those with minor disabilities. I also at St. Joseph's College took a few child study classes and have even visited a few places that help the disabled children.
