• I’ve taught and tutored for five years, children ranging from 6 to 12, and babysat for ten years, children ranging from 1 week old to 5 years. • I recognise that singing, eye contact, and active play (passing and showing) are essential parts of the developmental process. In addition, I believe routine plays an important role in providing consistency for the infant (naps for example). • The most challenging part of working with an infant is learning to understand their particular signals. It is important to watch and listen to the baby’s cries and sounds, and respond to their cues, while also tending to their need for nutrition, affection and warmth. • The most rewarding part of a relationship with an infant is when he or she will interact, feel secure and show developmental growth. It is important to provide children with positive foundations so that they can emulate this in their future.

I started with babysitting my younger sister when she was bout 2 years old, and now she is 13 years of age. kids are so beautiful to me an i like being around kids because they make me happy. I babysit the neighbors kids.Right now i help my older sister with her son. I help babysit my nephew. Because she work during the day, he spend most of his time with me. I help potty train him and teach him the alphabets. I make it fun for him because all kids want to do is have fun. We go to the park and ride the bike. I also make sure he take his naps. My overall experience with children has been great so far and i want to continue doing it.
