Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I've been babysitting since I was 10 years old, and I've always been good with kids. I've worked with children of all ages, many with disabilities. I was a nanny in Germany for my aunt for a year, but I also worked part-time for another famil. Mostly with their 2 year old, but also with their other 3 children aged 5-12. I also worked for a company doing an after school program with kids with disabilities who were in foster care. I worked there for 4 months until I left for school. It was a very challenging job, but I loved it. I absolutely adore children. Most recently I was a nanny for a British family living in Utah. I was with them for two years, and even moved home to England with them to help the kids transition.

I have been working in Maryland and Virginia for the last 14 and half years. My first family I stayed with for 11 years. They had 8 children 4 of there own and 4 adopted. The youngest was 1.5 years old, then 2.5 years old, then 6 years old, 8, 10, 15, 17, 18. I drove all kids to after school activities. When the youngest was 6 we adopted another child I drove to Indiana and picked him up when he was an hour old because the mom got very sick and could not go. I went through a background check, FBI check finger prints and all for that adoption. I taught all younger children how to swim and helped with all homework for all children. Cooked meals and cleaned the house, washed clothes for all did not put away parents just left folded. The two youngest had asthma, used a nebulizer to treat the symptoms. The New baby had eczema tried all natural and doctor prescribed cures. Took care of the pets fed, watered, vet visits. Took kids to the doctor. Bought Christmas and Anniversary gifts. The mother had porphyria a liver disease at times she could not walk or see helped with all private bodily functions. I cleaned the house, did laundry for kids and parents just folded parents. Bathrooms, mopped wood floors. My second family had 3 girls. 3,7,10. I did the same with this family. I drove about 300 miles a week taking the kids to soccer, lacrosse, ballet, church functions, shopping for food and for clothing, party gifts what ever was needed.

I love kids! I have since I was young. Growing up I did alot of babysitting, especially with this family of six kids(the oldest was 8) and loved them so much! I have also worked with kids in dance. I am a dancer and for the past four years I have been teaching kids at a dance studio. So I have had alot of experience with them and managing the behavior of 12 three year-olds at once. It was crazy at times, but definately worth it. I am the youngest of six kids and so I have always been the designated babysitter for all of my siblings kids. It's always fun though because they are so loving and make you feel special and wanted!! The last thing that I want to mention is that for the past year I have been volunteering at an elemetry school working with differnent kids. Kids bring so much joy in my life and played a big role in it for most of my years. I have a patient personality and I love people and kids. I always try my best in everything that I do and I know that I will be able to be a friend and to love any child that I work with! :)
