I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old (5 years). I have watched kids ranging from 0-11 years of age. Each child is is unique and requires a certain type of care. Some children I have watched are more reserved than others, but either way I try to make sure they are enjoying themselves while staying safe. I am also CPR certified by the American Red Cross and have been a lifeguard the past two summers. I love kids and am an outgoing babysitter!
