I have worked with children almost my entire life. I started babysitting when I was about 11 years old. I babysat two children, a girl that was 3 and a boy that was 6. I babysat for this family for about 3 years. I have also babysat for a family with two girls a little older (10 and 13) also for about 3 years. My Mother is a teacher and I would get many different babysitting jobs from the parents of children she taught. I have worked for the City of San Mateo as a gymnastics teacher, for grades pre-k through 8th grade. through all of my experience I have learned how to work with all ages and pretty much all personality types.

Growing up I have always had a passion for children. I love to care for children of all ages. They're simply such a joy to be around and have great and positive energy and a lot of times it's contagious. I've earned a lot of experience with my church's daycare, since the age of 15 I would always volunteer to work at the daycare center of my church where I've had to care for kids of all ages. I've also been babysitting for various families from time to time. I love working with children and getting to know them individually. My goal has always been to help them exceed their best potential and grow healthy and happier.

My past childcare experience was great, but the mom had a new baby and she would rather stay at home with the newborn and watch her kids. I watched them for 3 years and i would help the kids out. I would help them with there homework if they needed it and i would cook them dinner or get it started. Make sure the kids laundry is done. I always took the kids to the parks and to the library so they can have fun. I also would bring activities when they were home because they loved doing art projects.
