In my most recent nanny position I cared for a 1 year old and 5 year old. That job ended because mom left her job and decided to stay home full time. Before that I was with a family that had a 3 and 5 year old. Besides caring for the children I also ran errands for mom and dad. I also traveled with the family. I worked with 4 other families with children as young as newborns to 15 years old. Along with childcare I also did laundry, general upkeep of the house and made family dinners.
