I worked in a daycare for 6 years mainly in the infant/toddler rooms :). After that I became a nanny for 2 boys I had known from the daycare, at the time ages 1 and 4. That family moved out of state :( I am currently ending my time with a family because they are unfortunately moving upstate. The children were 2 months and 2 years old when I started. Now they are an amazing 3 and 15 month old pair.
