I have been working with children for the past 9 years. I am an assistant toddler teacher at the daycare I currently work at and this has been my position for the past 2 years. In the past I have worked with children ranging in age from 6 weeks to 5 years old. In 2012 I decided to try Nannying. I was with that family for a year and a half and I loved it. I left that family and have been back working in daycare since. At this point I have decided that being a Nanny is the better career choice for me. Before graduating high school I took a class called Pre School Lab and that's when I knew that working with children was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I also have been babysitting children since I was 16.
