I have been caring for children in various capacities since I was a teenager. I have worked in nurseries caring for infants and toddlers, I have babysat children of multiple age ranges (mostly infants and young children) and my most recent job included caring for 3 children (ages 1 month, 2 years and 4 years). Most of my babysitting/nanny jobs have included light house keeping, as well as preparing meals/feeding the children, playing with the, doing arts and crafts and games, and taking the children to fun activities. I also have experience caring for children with special needs, both physical and developmental.

This included bathing/dressing, tube feeding via G-Tube and later a pump, administering medication, as well as performing a pace-maker check when needed. I also have experience caring for and interacting with children with Autism and Asperger Syndrome, as well as children with down syndrome.
