Full-time hours

I have been involved with caring for children (ages newborn-12) for several years; as I have three siblings who are much younger than me. I helped my Mother (on bed-rest at the time) when I was 13 in caring for my siblings and managing household obligations, so I am very capable by now in running a home with children involved. I was also a Mother's helper for a family of eight children from the age of 12-17. I took part in caring for children, cleaning, laundry etc. I have done several other smaller baby-sitting/mother's helper situations as well, including cleaning jobs mother's needed help getting their deep cleaning done! I have worked with multiple families, with different lifestyles and needs. Several of the children I watched, -including my brother- have special needs, and so I have experience in that area, particularly with Autism/Aspergers. I also have experience handling multiple children: i.e. 5 young children in a Mother's helper situation (often left alone with them to watch for hours on end), at home with my siblings, and in leading a Children's choir/working a nursery in my Church. I am also an accomplished cook, being able to bake/cook very well for different dietary needs. My entire family has become gluten free and so I am very experienced working with a gluten free diet; as well as some knowledge on dairy free/sugar free/other dietary needs. People often describe me as energetic, fun, genuine, and honest. I am very enthusiastic in whatever I am doing, so I would be very excited to do what I love the most- work with children!
