Kelsey  M. - Seeking Work in Wantagh

Hourly rate12.43 / hour

I started as a Mother's Helper for a set of twins when they were just three weeks when I was 10. Since then I have babysat for a number of families, a camp counselor, and a Teacher's Aide. I have babysat children from infants to twelve year olds, but toddler to five years old are still my favorite age groups. I have watched single and multiple children at a time, as many as five in a group. Now, I am studying to become an educator, but I still love just hanging out with children!

My experience with childcare has been full of variety...I am equipped to care for children of all ages. I am experienced with many small children toddlers etc. my strength though is from about 5 and up. At that age they demand extra supervision because of their curious nature...yet I have always used this trait as a learning experience and have learned to turn curiosity into wonder as childcare or "babysitting" turns into a learning experience and children can become better aware of their surroundings...their boundaries...and their mind.
