Full-time hours

I have babysat for a family for an entire summer. It was a family of 6 kids ranging from ages of 2 years old up to 10 years old. I would take the kids outside to play on the swing set, take them bike riding, take them swimming at my parents pool when my parents where home. I would play board games with the children read books and get the kids ready for bed at night time. I would also cook and fix all the meals for the children. If the famil asked me to do light housework I was more than willing to do that as well.

6 yrs of experience

From February 2012 to August 2015 I was a live-in nanny for my two granddaughters who at the time were between 1 to 5 years of age. I picked up/dropped the older one at preschool, provided lunches, snacks, playtime, outings, etc, From September 2015 to December 2017, I provided first fulltime care and then parttime care for my then two year old greatniece, providing the same services as with my granddaughters, This most recent babysitting experience ended only because her mother (my niece) had a baby girl two weeks ago. I expect to be providing childcare help to her when her newborn is a little older. In the meantime, I'm available to her on an as-needed basis. I would like to add that the first babysitting job ended due to a move from my daughter's home in Finksburg, MD to Enola, PA. I live very close to my grandchildren (ages 1 to 11) and interact with them almost daily, These are different grandchildren than the ones I watched in MD. I love children and this is what I feel most comfortable doing. I am a 65 year old great-grandmother, who is quite healthy, active, loves "getting down" and playing with kids, and young at heart.. I would very much appreciate being considered for this particular position or any similar position. Thank you for your consideration.
