From the age of 10 I took care of my brothers, now 14 and 18 (I am now 24). I took care of them in the mornings before school, in the afternoons afterschool, and most days in the evenings, making sure homework and chores were done, and making sure dinner was made and showers were taken. I have cared for 3 children, other than my brothers, from the time of infancy and up. They are now ages 5, 6 and 9, and I'm still on very good terms with those whom I am still in touch with. Some people have moved away.

I owned my own daycare for 18 years from my home and cared for up to 9 children a day ages 8 weeks to 12 years old. I designed and followed a daily cirriculum which included arts and crafts and educational teachings. I fed the children snacks and meals and transported the children to and from school. I also have 2 years experience as a Nanny here in Tennessee for a family in their home on a full time basis. I cared for their two children in 3rd and 4th grade, did housecleaning, prepared meals, managed finances and ran errands for the family. I basically did whatever was needed to help the family run smoothly while the parents worked.
