Aiden and Kayson are very bright and energetic. I normally sat them on weekends and throughout summer breaks,over night watches were normally the job and sometimes when mother was out of town or gone at the time. Celissa preferred a schedule for the boys for the day but nothing strict but to be followed. Duties varied between 5:30am and 7am, depending on the time the boys are up and ready to start the day. Breakfast was served while they watched educational shows and get dressed after. Outside was something preferred by them around 11 and riding bikes til around 1pm.

Due to us not having much family, Iv been the main resource of caring when my mother Is working. Knowing that my younger sister is autistic, things have to be nearly the same because, changes are something that is hard for her to adapt to. She's very loving ,caring and very smart and doesn't need to much of assistance but a eye to stay on her. Being that she's 11 years old, she makes her own food(if simple) , plays outside or reads , plays wii and cleans some areas. Me being there to assist her I basically just make sure if she was on the right track for the day and follow behind. Right now my hours to assist watch my sister is from 9 to 5.

You can say I've practically been babysitting since my first little sister was born when I was 6. Since her, I was blessed with 2 more wonderful sisters. While living with my parents, my mom often left me in charge. Once I moved in with my great-grandparents at the age of 12, I started babysitting for neighbors and other people around the community. 7 years ago, the joy of my life was born; my cousin Kaden. He was born with his intestines on the outside of his body, but now you would never be able to tell. My uncle had 2 girls after Kaden was born, and since then I frequently get the opportunity to be with the 3 of them. When I lived at home, I consistently had another family I babysat for.

I've been babysitting since I was 12 years old, so I have 7 years of experience. I have worked with a variety of ages, from 5 months to 13 years old. Last year, I frequently watched a 1 year old several times a week. I got to experience so many different milestones in his life over the few months: learning to crawl, walk, and talk. I love working with younger children especially because everything is so new and exciting for them! I have also been watching a now-23 month old cousin since he was 5 months old and have enjoyed watching him grow up! Last summer, I was also a nanny for 4 kids ages 5,6,9, and 12 for 5 days a week. Often, the kids would have their friends over so there were sometimes up to 6 or 7 kids, so I have experience working with lots of children! This job gave me a lot of experience in working in hectic situations, and I would now say that one of my strengths is remaining calm in stressful situations. We would always do fun activities like going to the humane society, going to the park, or going to the pool. I love the outdoors, doing crafts, and going on fun adventures. I'm also a pretty flexible person, so I can go along with whatever your children are interested in doing! This summer, I am nannying for a 7 year old girl and a 9 year old boy, 5 days a week. We often go to the park, the pool, the movies, or spend time playing games or creating things at their house.

I have been babysitting for families in the Atlanta area from the age of 12 to 19 . Starting in the fall of 2003 to the spring of 2006, I cared for five children between the ages of 3 and 10. I went home with them after school and was responsible for fixing dinner, assisting with homework, and putting them to bed. I began nannying over the summer when I was about 15. That summer I cared for a 1 year old premature infant. The next summer I cared for two girls, one about 8 years old and the other about 5 years old. In the summer of 2010 I cared for the same two girls, now 10 and 7 years old. I continued to babysit for families in the Atlanta area when I was home from school. I recently graduated from the University of Georgia and live in Athens. During my undergraduate career I chose to focus on school work and am now interested in becoming involved in childcare in the Athens area since completing my academic course work. I am currently in the application process for medical school.

I have been babysitting since I was about 10 for family and friends. My first job when I was 16 through when I was 18 was at a day care where I mostly worked with the one and a half year olds, but I was also flexible and moved to other rooms when they needed me to. The summer after my senior year of high school, I worked at an outdoor sports day camp where I worked with about 7 or 8, 4-6 year olds all summer. I babysat regularly all throughout college where I studied and obtained a degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia College. I was in a 1st grade classroom for a year and a half but also have experience in Kindergarten, 2nd grade and 4th grade. This past summer I nannied 2 girls aged 7 and 8 for a few weeks. It was a single parent home so I would help out most of the day, even with the mom at home. The girls and I would travel all over the state, riding MARTA to the zoo, aquarium, and other fun Atlanta places. I was sad to see the family move to Florida because I truly enjoyed getting to be in their family for a few weeks and I really loved getting to spend so much time with the girls!

I have been caring for and working with children for over a decade. I started babysitting when I was fairly young, and transitioned to nannying when I was in high school. (Over the summer, I nannied for a mom who was studying for the bar, and then continued nannying in college.) Most recently, I've spent four years with a family with three children, currently aged 2, 4, and 7. I am getting re-certified in infant CPR and first aid in November, and am comfortable driving with kids and taking them swimming, among other activities. English is my native language, and I've studied Spanish, French, and Latin, though I haven't retained much. My dad spoke Dutch to me when I was young, so I have some familiarity with Dutch as well. I studied abroad in Italy for 7 months, and am still trying to attain fluency in Italian. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask-I'm an open book!
