Hello! The most frequent and steady experience I have with young children come from babysitting and caring for my young cousins. I have been babysitting since an early age and thoroughly enjoy it. I have many younger cousins I have cared for simultaneously. I usually babysit children ages 5 months to 12 years of age. I am very attentive and I am very good at multitasking and scheduling, particularly when it comes to feeding, changing and consoling. I give my undivided attention in whatever task is at hand. Being that I am an only child, I have always enjoyed loving and caring for many children at a time. I prefer any routine children are currently accustomed to. I have good time management skills and I am also good at balancing my time with every child in my care.

I have been babysitting for a couple of years now. Last summer I took care of two delightful children full time. One was 4 the other was around 9. The summer before that I took care of a newborn baby boy. I have worked in daycares as well as summer camps where I've taken care of multiple children at one time. I currently work for my church taking care of children, most weekends I have the infants but if not I'll have preschool-school age children. I really enjoy newborns and toddlers because they are so energetic and full of life. They find everything entertaining whether it be a shadow on the wall or a silver fork.
