I'm 19, but please do not let that fool you. I have five years of infant care experience under my belt, and eight years of basic childcare. My first, real, infant care experience started in 2008 when I went to Boston for the summer and worked as an Au Pair/Nanny for my aunt. My cousin was 11 months old when I started and I continued to go every summer until 2010. I was completely and fully responsible for my cousin from the hours of 8am until 6pm every week day. During the most recent school year, I worked as a Nanny/After school caregiver to a family with two children (ages 10 and 12). I was responsible for providing a snack, helping with homework, and keeping the children active until 5pm. Right now I work part time for my other aunt by watching her kids (age 1 and 4)and I babysit my younger brothers (2 and 5) occasionally. This will last only until I move to Chattanooga in the middle of July. Along with the previously mentioned experience, I have also had many babysitting jobs along the years. I have been CPR and First Aid certified every year since I was 13.

I have a lot of babysitting experience. I used to babysit for my neighbor's starting from age 11.

My grandma had a non profit organization in which she fed the homeless every Christmas, and thanksgiving. I have learned a lot about being a good role for our youth through my experiences from my youth!
