My first childcare experience was an awesome experience. I cared for toddlers for a year and they both loved and they became attached to me immediately, and I've been caring for young children ever since.

I have worked in childcare settings for almost three years now. I mainly work with preschoolers but I have had opportunities to work with younger children. I have had experience working with older children while I was an overnight camp counselor for two summers. I also have babysat within others homes, as well as my own. Along with paid experiences I have also gotten to experience working with children from some of my college classes. There were hours observing children and hours I needed to be making lesson plans and implementing them within the classroom settings. I currently work within a vocational school as a preschool teacher. I also am a lifeguard and swim instructor. I teach various swim lessons and help out with youth swim activities.
