I currently babysit for a family with two daughters, ages 8 and 11, every other weekend. During graduate school, I babysat for a family with one daughter from her birth through age 5. During that time I also babysat for another family with two children, a 3.5 year old and an 8 month old. I have 14 years of childcare experience. I first began by watching my younger sister after school and then as needed. She is 3.5 years younger than me. We lived in a neighborhood where there were many families with young children. I started babysitting for families in the neighborhood and from church. The children ranged in ages and the families ranged in size from having 1-4 kids. I also babysat for more than one family at a time. I occasionally babysat with another babysitter when we were watching more two or more families at a time. I began babysitting when I was 13. I babysat through middle school, high school and college. During college, I babysat for a family with 2 kids and 7 dogs. (I am also a big fan of pets!)

I have 8 cousins all under the age of 8! I have spent so much time with them and have babysat for my family members on many occasions since I was 11 yrs old. I also used to babysit a 5 yr old and 2 yr old and I loved them very much. I have recently started watching a 2 yr old and a 7 yr old and realized how much I miss spending time with kids! I am willing to work almost any schedule and love playing with and teaching small children. I am also completely fine with doing light housework.
