I started caring for children when my first niece was born. My sister was working throughout the summer and I was looking for a job. After that, I fell in love with children! I have babysat for 6 different family since then, and I have never had one problem. As I visited with my sister in law about becoming a full time nanny for the summer, she instantly referred me to this website and I was hooked! Since then I've worked with multiple children including disabled children.

I started working with children when I was 12. I would babysit two girls (3, and 6) in their home every week. I did this for a while but I had to go to school so I ended up stopping. When I was in 7th grade I started babysitting again around my neighborhood and my friends neighborhood, these jobs would be on a on call basis nothing super concrete. I started nannying 3 little children (infant, 2 year old and 3 year old) when I was a second year in college and I watched them every summer and then on breaks like christmas or thanksgiving.
