I have been babysitting for about three years. The main job I'd (and still do have) is occasional, I do however, still play with those kids even when their parents are home, (I live next door), I can handle up to six kids at a time. I have been volunteering more that working with children, mostly in my church nursery. I love kids, they bring such fun to our lives, and I am able to care for infants too.

I began babysitting for a family of 3 when I was 10 years old, they lived down the street so my parents were close if there were any problems. I continued babysitting throughout my years of schooling. I was a camp counselor for a local elementary school for 2 years working with 5th graders. I was a teachers assistant for 2nd grade for 1 school year while I was a junior in high school. I was also an assistant to Kindergarten for 1 year as well. I volunteered at my church's nursery when I was 12-15 years old. I have all kinds of different types of experience working with kids of all ages.
