I have variety of interesting childcare experience that makes me feel like I can handle anything. I have done the typical one night or once a week babysitting job for family friends, babysitting toddlers - 10 year olds, never more than three children at a time.
I was a nanny for a year in Paris, caring for a 5-year-old. Picking him after school, taking him to his after-school activities, supervising play dates, making him dinner, giving him baths, and generally entertaining him.
I have worked as a children's birthday entertainer, throwing birthday parties for children between the ages of 2- 6. For each party, I am in charge of communicating with parents, organizing the kids through the different activities, setting up arts and crafts, controlling play in the gymnasium, and ensuring that everyone has a really good time.
I have also worked at a children's summer camp in Russia for two months during summer 2010. I was a camp counselor and an English teacher. During this experience, our camp was in danger of a forest fire, so I helped with evacuation, safety, and organization of ninety kids.
During winter 2012, I worked at a home for children (ages infant - 18) with disabilities. I helped with the transportation of children to and from the city (roughly an hour commute by bus). I fed, entertained, disciplined, and took care of the kids for 12 hours a day, while also helping with house chores. It was extremely intense, but by far the best experience that I have ever had.
