I babysat regularly as a teen for family and friends. As an adult I have been a nanny for families with children ranging in age from 6 weeks to 12 years, including some multiples. I not only worked as a private nanny in family homes, but also part time in a home childcare "center" with children of all ages (up to 12). I have had job descriptions as simple as "play mate", as well as positions that asked more of me as a care provider. I love it all, and relish every moment with the children I have cared for.

My father is a pastor so I've grown up doing volunteer childcare and I've always loved helping with children. I started babysitting around the age of thirteen for a few families, then my name got around and that is how I spent my weekends. I looked forward to it, to me it wasn't just a job, I loved watching children. I also have a ten year old sister that I helped raise. Ive watched children with autism, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, and ADHD.
