Ive been in this field unofficially for my whole life! I began babysitting when I was 16. A year after that I would sporadically work temporary gigs while going to school and working other part time retail positions. I got my first introduction to a daycare environment at age 20. Most recently I am a nanny for two boys but I am looking for something much more beneficial.
