I had the pleasure of babysitting a family of four for two years. The children were ages 3-10, both boys and girls, and I can honestly say it was the greatest job I've ever had. There's something about working with kids that brings me great joy and satisfaction. They're like little sponges who absorb so much and are constatnly learning. Aside from the family of four, I've had experience with babysitting multiple cousins and relatives. I've also taught the preschool Bible class at my church for the past year. Working with children is a genuine pleasure for me, unlike any other.

My childcare experience began with watching my two premature sisters (twins) starting from infancy. Then my experience grew once I hit high school with babysitting and being a teacher assistant. Now I am a junior at Longwood University studying education. I have been in many classes that have taught me about children's behaviors and how to work with children of each age range. I also have spent many hours in the classroom as well as volunteering around schools and friends homes, which involve coming up with fun activities that challenge the imagination and brain.
