I have had many years of experience with childcare! I was a preschool teacher aid for 3.5 years at North Heights Christian Academy in Roseville, Minnesota. This institution was a preschool during the school year and was a daycare during the summer. During my few years here I cared for children 2.5 years to 5 years during the school year and 2.5 to 11 years during the summers. I have also been a nursery attendant a couple days a week at a church nursery for over a year caring for children ages infant to 8 years. I have also been a full time nanny for a family of 6. I took care of 4 boys between the ages of 3 and 10. I now have two different jobs in childcare as I finish up my college degree- I work at a child development center where I care for children ages infant to 5 years, as well as a part time nanny for two children ages 1 and 3. Please feel free to ask me any questions about any of these experiences! I love talking about them!

During High School, I babysat a young girl every Wednesday and Thursday evening for 3 years all year round. I would take her to games, to the park, out to dinner, etc. I helped her potty train, and walk. In college, I babysit four young boys whenever needed. We play games, read books, go to the park etc. I would cook them meals also. I also babysit a little one year old boy on occasion when needed. I read to him, feed him, bathe him and put him to bed.
