Graytown, OH Nannies

Lindsey H. - Seeking Work in Graytown

9.37 / hour

I started out watching children when I was in middle school for the neighbors children. I have watched all sizes of families with children of all different ages. I have enjoyed all the families I have watched and I have learned a little more about child care with each new family I watched for. At first I took on jobs where I would watch children after school until their parents would get home then I also started watching them at night. In the past year I decided to take my abilities to a new level of child care which meant watching children 4-5 days a week for 9-10 hours a day. I enjoyed this experience greatly and it taught me a lot about myself. While watching these children I came up with many activities to occupy time so that the children could have a good time and also learn new things. Some activities I did with the children were play games, make crafts, bake goodies, go for bike rides, go swimming and take field trips to local places. This seemed to keep the children interested throughout the long summer hours and days. I have been very careful with each child I have watched and every now and again kids fall down but I am there each time to make sure they get back up.
