I have previously worked in a childcare setting that was a christian preschool. I worked with children ages 2.9 mos to 5 years old. I worked in this school for almost a year. Before then, I worked as a babysitter during my teen years for 3 different families. One family had 3 children, when I started the ages were 9mos (developmentally delayed), 2 years old( who had aspergers) , and 4 years old. My second family had 2 children, ages when I started were 18 mos (severely developmentally delayed), and 2 years (behavioral problems due to abuse). My third family had one child age 4 with severe breathing difficulties and a hip displacement and so was in a cast and could not walk.

I have 5+ years working as a child-care provider. Due to recent cut-backs, I was laid off. I was devastated as all 300+ kids in my programs mean the world to me. I have worked for other child-care organizations, as well as providing excellent private care. I am First Aid and CPR certified, as well as very experienced with children of all ages. I've also spent multiple hours dedicating myself to volunteering for special needs programs, such as inclusion camps, cooking classes, and karate.
