I babysat for a two brother, ages five and seven. They liked to play outside and watch movies. I made them dinner, played with them, talked with them, bathed them, and put them to bed. I babysat typically twice a week for the family. I also have consistently babysat my brother, who is currently three. I was fifteen when he was born so I was able to help with feeding him, preparing bottles, changing his diapers and clothes, giving him baths. Now, we play together, which is a lot of interactive, imaginary play, I answer his questions which is very entertaining :) and make him dinner occasionally. I strive to make it fun for everyone and to make it a positive, happy environment.

I have worked for many families in the past with children ages newborn-preteen. My last family I work for I started in August 2014 and work with them for a full year. They have two children and when I started the oldest was six years old and their youngest was only four months. Once their youngest was old enough for daycare they decided to put her in so that she could have more interactions with children her own age.

In the past I have coached soccer at camps to children between the ages of 3-17. Camps would last from 9am-3pm,we would teach them soccer skills and also an 'inspire' curriculum where we were able to teach them social skills such as self-esteem, self-confidence, belief and what being a part of a team means. I lived with a different family each week where we would take part in different activities outside of soccer camp. I have also volunteered at local schools to work in the classroom with children of all ages.
