I am babysat for a wide range of families, anywhere from one child to babysitting for a church group of thirteen children. I started babysitting when I was twelve years old, only time I babysat before was for my little brother. I have no preference on age, children are very important to me. I try and play with them and keep them happy and engaged, but I know there are certain rules a child must follow, and most of the time the parents will tell me prior to be babysitting. I also know it is important for a child to like their babysitter, which is why it helps if I can get to know them first, that way the parents can also be assured that things will go smoothly while they are out. I love kids and know how important they are.

I have been doing childcare for a long time. It started with caring for my brother and sister. I'm 8 years older than my brother and 6 years older than my sister. I've been babysitting them since I can remember. I have also volunteered in our church nursery. Last year I had a babysitting job where I took part in watching a 2 month old baby girl, with her 2 year old and 3 year old brother. My latest experience with childcare was subbing for two people I knew that had daycares. There has been multiple times I have subbed at the daycare and watched 8+ kids all under the age of 6 while she ran errands all day. I absolutely love working with children and would love to find a family to nanny for.

I have two younger sisters, one who is 6 years younger than I. I grew up watching her many many times. I also grew up with many young neighbors. I would watch them after school and on the weekends. I have babysat numerous times for all age groups. During college, I babysat an infant after class. I have worked with children in church during Vacation Bible School. I was a mentor to an 8 year old girl at a low income charter school. Currently, I am a full time nanny in the KC area. Not only do I care for 2 amazing children, I do many personal errands and tasks for the family, such as grocery shopping, jewelry repair, doctor visits, car repair, etc. One of my favorite things about my job is helping the kids with their homework. It is rewarding to see the lightbulbs go off in their heads! I love my current job, however, I am moving to Wichita, KS at the end of May 2012. I would love to find a full time nanny job in Wichita.

I began babysitting 12 years ago when I was 11 years old. To prepare myself for the job, I completed a babysitting course through the Red Cross. I have experience taking care of infants, most recently with my niece who is now 15 months old. During periods of the past two summers, she was in my care while her parents were at work. I enjoy doing activities with the children I take care of such as: craft projects, playing games, cooking, reading and other fun activities. My experience with children continued through my membership with 4-H where I was a project leader for the younger children in my club as well as an officer. I taught cheer leading and gymnastics classes at our city recreation center where I worked with children of all ages. Being a Big Sister for Big Brothers/Big Sisters in Garden City and Emporia was very rewarding for me. I especially enjoy the experience of taking care of children infant through toddler age and watching them grow and learn new things each day.
