The summer of 2007 I nannied for a family with three girls, ages 5,7,and 10. I worked every weekday from about 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. My daily job duties included driving the girls around to different activities, cooking lunch (sometimes starting dinner), and planning activities to fill the day. This past summer I was involved with a program called Camp Adventure. I was sent over to Brussels, Belgium where I was a counselor at a summer day camp on an American military base. I primarily worked in the child development center with children from birth to age 6; however, I also spent time in the school-aged programs and the middle school and teen programs. While at school I work at a preschool center. I've worked in both the 4- and 5-year-old room as well as the 3- and 4-year-old room.
