Hi! My experience with all ages I have worked with peopby my previous childcare positions has been, "she's excellent." (Susan and Eric), "she was very involved with our girl," (Cheryl and Kraig), and several more. I also worked at an overnight summer camp for 16 weeks with 8 and 9 year old girls and all of them would line up their shoes, brush their teeth, comb their hair, and put their clothes away neatly without any prompting for the small incentive they wanted to learn American Sign Language by me so they could talk without getting in trouble for making noise. I have several more stories such as that one.

From babysitting as a child to taking care of my younger sibling and cousins, I have had childcare experience my whole life. I recently started helping my friends part-time by being a nanny for their kids. One friend has two kids, 6 & 10 who I watched most of the summer and the other woman is a foster mom. She had me watch the child in her custody during the day while she want to school. I have watched children from as young as one week old to two years old for her, on numerous occasions. Being a foster mom, she can't trust just anyone, but she trusts me to watch her kids.
