Bailey C. - Seeking Work in Covington

I have been hired by two different families on xx over the past couple years, and worked for these families full-time during summer and college breaks. Before being hired through xx, I spent many years baby-sitting a variety of families. I have been baby-sitting since age 12, where at the time I worked for families in my neighborhood. During high school, I worked through the YMCA child care center caring for infants to age 12. I also spent one summer (2014) as a summer day camp counselor, also through the xx. In December of 2016, I graduated from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania receiving a Bachelors of Science degree in Early Childhood Education as well as Special Education.

I’ve had a lot of experience babysitting. I recently was picked by my Beta leader to babysit 26 little and tiny miss bath county contestants... at the end of the night everyone was fine and everything went smoothly! I’m only 18, however, I’m very mature for my age and would love to learn more!! I’ve always loved kids and wanted to be around them! I would be able to work in the evening until school ends and once school ends I could be an all day babysitter! :)
