Jana C. - Seeking Work in Rapid City

14.28 / hour

I have been babysitting since I was 11 years old. I have a very high tolerance for behavior and patience. I used to work at Girls Incorporated after I finished high school for a summer after going there for 8 years as a member. They were very helpful and let me educate myself on how to take care of children of any age. I am currently working with xx child care Center for Regional Hospital. I mostly work with infants and toddlers but sometimes I get to help with the bigger and older kids. Both ages are extremely fun, and challenging so I always look forward going to work.
