I was watching 2 kids a little girl around the age of 5 and her brother was 4. I would watch them during the week from the hours 3-12pm. In the summertime I would take them to the water parks or the pool. On rainy days we would stay in and watch movies, play games, read books. During school time the 5 year old was in preschool so after school we would work on homework if there was some. The hours I worked for this family would change time to time. I watched these kids for about 3 years and then the family didn't need me no more because the mother didn't have no more work. The other family I watched there was also 2 kids one girl and one boy. (Girl 5)(boy 4). I would watch thdm during the week and on weekends they would sleep over my house. During the week i would have them from 12- 6 p.m i watched them for about 3 years and currently still watch them on weekends from time to time. I also would watch my sister when my mom needed to work. I was about 11 and my little sister was about 5 when I started watching her for my mom. My mother was a single parent so she didn't have much help from my dad so I would do her the favor and help her out by watching my sister.

I have a ton of childcare experience! I have a younger sister, age 5, whom I've watched her whole life. I have two younger brothers and an older sister with a learning disability, whom I've also had to take care of from time to time. I teach a class of 5-6 year olds at the church that I attend; and I've also volunteered at a while I was at school in Idaho. A few of the babysitting experiences I've had are taking care of an autistic child to watching a family of 5 girls, all under age 9. I love children! I've worked with all kinds--autistic, very hyper, calm and shy, and more. I enjoy spending time with kids and would like to describe myself as a patient and fun, but firm person when it comes to my authority with kids.

My childcare experience began as I was babysitting neighborhood children at the age of 12. Upon graduating high school I provided care for 2 families as a live out nanny. One family had 2 school age children and the other family had 3 school age children. My duties with both families included housekeeping. I worked as a teacher's aide for 3 years. To be home with my own children I decided to provided care in my home. As a licensed provider I cared for all ages of children and continued doing this for 15 years. During this time I obtained a CDA (child development associate) credential, some college credits in early childhood education, first aid, CPR, fire safety, and many other childcare related trainings. Upon raising my own children, I decided to be a nanny again providing care for a family of 2 school age children. My duties include housekeeping, Dr. appointments, sports activities,playdates and family errands. I also volunteered at the children's school.
