I come from a pretty big family. I'm used to being surrounded by children of all ages and as one of the older ones in my family, the responsibility of caring for the younger kids usually fell on me. Not that I'm complaining! I love being around children, and taking care of people in general. My past childcare experience is limited to babysitting for friends and family and other neighborhood kids as well as the knowledge I've gained from studying both infant and developmental psychology.
