I had the opportunity to be a nanny/caregiver for a wonderful 2 1/2 year old little girl. Throughout my experience I had the chance to go to story time, the beach, indoor playgrounds, play dates with other children, the zoo , etc. I loved going to work each day and coming up with new activities for her as well as crafts. We created a nice bond and this was very rewarding. I also worked as a team member in the child center at Lifetime Athletic. I loved the work I did. Always being involved with a variety of different children was wonderful. Being able to engage with the children in a group setting was a fun experience. Forming relationships with their parents made work something I looked forward to each day. I recently was a household manager for a family that consists of a 13 yr. old, 10 yr. old twins and a 4 yr. old. I drop off and pick up for activities and school and I make things at home run smoothly. This consists of laundry, tidying up rooms, dishes and preparing dinner, grocery shopping, playing games and just hanging out with the children. I enjoyed this work because I was always busy and running around. I work for a family of three boys as well. I truly adore them! They are 5, 3 and 14 months. I met this family through Lifetime Fitness and I feel I have become a great influence and role model in the boys’ lives. I really enjoy my time spent with these boys. To add to my list, I have 3 wonderful nieces, 3 yrs, 15 months and 3 months.

My last childcare experience was actually taking care of my cousins baby boy Henry. Even though I am the youngest in the family she said she could only trust me with her 3 month old son. I would go to her house at 7 am before she went to work and would take care of Henry from 7 till around 5. I would change him, feed him and bathe him. We couldn't do much playing but I loved to do tummy time, helping him stand up and other activities to help him advance. I loved watching him grow and learn new things so fast! Being able to be apart of that experience was unforgettable!
