I started supervising children when I was in high school. It was my primary position of employment for my final 2 years of high school when the 2 children were not old enough to attend school. Throughout the years as they became older I have babysat to them when their parents needed supervision. I have also worked in a day care called Educational Playcare, I tended to newborns and pre school aged children. During my first year in college I carried out my fieldwork in a Head Start with children ages 3 and 4 years old. I have also worked tending to newborns and children who were preparing for kindergarten. This past year I worked in an elementary school tutoring children in kindergarden, first, second and fifth grade and I have also worked at the Kids Club at the local health and wellness fitness center in which I cared children for ranging in ages from 3 months until 12 years while their parents used the facilities.

Hourly rate10.10 / hour

Since the age of 13, I have been taking care of children (those of family and friends.) Through this I have developed an better understanding of what a child wants and needs; both aspects are important when it comes to childcare. I've babysat children anywhere from infancy to 11 years of age. All children are unique and require special care. For the past five years I've helped my mother and father raise my 5 year old sister (a completely free-spirit, something I greatly admire.)And we have a new addition to our family! Maya Rose, 8 months old!
