i was with a family for ten years there were two children. they were 4 and 6 when i started and they are now 21 and 23. the parents were divorced so i had to go between the two parents' houses. i did the homework with the kids,errands,all activities,doctors' appointments cooking etc. if they were sick i picked them up from school and cared for them as they got older. i was called first.i was then with a family with two children for two years. the children were 4months and 6 years old when i started and 2.5 years old and 8 years old when my time ended.that was a great experience because they were an indian family and i learned so many new things. they returned to india. my current family i have been with for almost three years. they have one child right now that is three and 1/2(i started when she was four months old) they have another little one that is 5 months. i am still with my current family and will be with them until i find a new family.

I always feel that I contributed in the childs learning and development. I enjoy knowing the fact that the children have fun experiences in everything we did. May it be a walk to the park, movie outings, shopping, playing board games, anything to do with arts and crafts. I am experienced in caring for newborns. I cared for a newborn and his two older sisters when I was in high school. I am currently babysitting for my cousins 11mo son. I've cared for him since he was a newborn. I am also caring for my best friends children when they are in town. They are 3 and 5mo. I cared for her first daughter from the time she was 3mo to 2yrs on a weekly basis before they moved out of state. My current job entails driving individuals to and from work. Helping with cooking/cleaning duties. Take them out wherever they may want to go. I am currently a home supervisor and work with developmentally disabled individuals. I take care of all the paperwork for the month including safety. I do all the grocery and home supply shopping. I make sure my individuals and the staff I work with have everything they need to be able to keep the home running smoothly for my boss.
