I was also a nanny for my cousin for 5 months, during that time I cooked meals, did crafts and took her on many field trips. I have also spent the summers of 2006 and 2007 working at a camp for orphans in Ukraine. The ages ranged from 4-17 and I helped to organize activities for the kids. I then nannied for a family with 2 daughters ages 5 & 7. I was with them for almost 10 months. I did light housework, cooked and helped the girls with school work. As well as did crafts and played games with them. I then had another summer nanny job for an 11-month old infant. Where I cared for him as well as did housework such as dishes, vacuuming as well as other miscellaneous household chores.

I worked with ages 6 weeks to a year then soon moved classrooms and began working with children 18 to 24 months.
