I have been watching children since I was about 11 or 12, when I began babysitting for my mother's friends. I continued babysitting all throughout high school. I have attended a nanny school. I have been with the same family since the almost youngest was 9 months old, he is now 8. In the time I worked for them I also watched her friend’s children, who, at the time, were a newborn and 2.5, she has since found a great nanny for her children. Two years ago I was a nanny for my niece but due to budget cuts at my sister's school her teaching position has been terminated. I usually watch how the family works for the first week to get a feel for the rules of the house, then I usually model my style after what the parents want. I prefer a semi structured style: school age children pick up their clothes and make their own beds, younger preschool children help pick up their toys, that kind of thing. I like to encourage creativity and curiosity. I use time outs and/or removal of privileges. I use no physical punishment. I like to get the children out of the house, whether it’s to a class (karate, swimming, gymnastics or similar), a walk around the neighborhood, visit to the park, museums, or zoos. I also like to bake and help children make their own food.

In the past, I babysat my own younger siblings, and for several other families. One example of my past childcare experience was in high school. I babysat one family of 6 children between the ages of 10 months and 12 years old for about 3 years on and off, as the need arose. I am confident in my ability to change diapers, provide meals, supervise swimming activities (I was on the swim team for 8 years), as well as other outdoor activities. I have also done housework in the past, while babysitting, as well as running errands, so I would also be comfortable doing these tasks as they arise!
