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.
