Hi! My name is Amy and I absolutely love children! I started babysitting when I was 12 years old and have babysat children of all ages over the years and have also been a full time nanny. Currently I am a part time stay at home mom and working part time in retail at a company I have been with for over 3 years. Now that I have my own daughter I realize how much I want to work with children all the time and would love to make it my job. I have a 10-month-old daughter who I would also be caring for at the same time. She is very independent and playful! She is a very happy baby and is very content playing by herself or just observing. She would make a great playmate for a child her age or even older children. This is a great option for kids who don't go to daycare to get plenty of socialization and play time with other kids. I do have family to care for her on any days when one of the kids is very sick so that illnesses aren't being passed between them. She will be with her grandma about once a week so there will be one on one time for your child as well. I have experience caring for other children at the same time as my own and it has been lots of fun! I have experience as a nanny for two boys who were 6 and 10 years old for about 2 years. Care involved preparing meals, helping with homework, basic housekeeping, learning and fun activities, play and driving to and from activities and appointments. The 6-year-old is also autistic so I have experience dealing with those special needs. I also frequently babysit for two boys and a girl who are ages 6, 8, and 10. I have been a babysitter for them for the past 6 years. I have brought my daughter along to babysit them and have had no issue caring for all 4 of them at once and they absolutely loved to play with her. For the past 4 months I have been watching an infant at least once a week to gain more experience with caring for multiple children and it has been going great.

Right out of high school I cared for two children (an infant and a toddler), full-time for one year. I then relocated to Boston and began to care for three children (two to start, the third was born during my care), age newborn to age 11, for seven years. I only ceased caring for them once all three children were in school full-time. Two years ago I helped a friend in her home day care with up to ten children aging in range from 5 weeks to 9 years. From April through August 2010 I cared for an infant full-time; he was three months old when I started. This position ended because his mother decided to stay home with him. I am currently a nanny (since November 2010) of one 14-month-old girl. My position will be ending at the end of November because her mother will be losing her job.

I have taught swimming lessons since January 2001 and have many experiences with different children and their age groups. Along with teaching, I also supervised the pool that I worked at. I have babysat children in the past, but not necessarily on a regular basis. I also worked with an after school program for children. I have been American Red Cross certified in CPR and first aid since January 2001 and I plan on continuing to renew my certifications every year. I have worked with children who have behavioral problems and children with Autism and Down's Syndrome.

Growing up, my mom held a daycare of 12 children in our home. I was one of the older kids, and helped out a lot with the younger ones. From here, I babysat for several families regularly and I ran our church nursery. To run the church nursery, I took a red cross CPR class that covered both infants/children and adults. I later became a nanny for a wonderful family and stayed with them over 3 years. It was a wonderful experience.
