Hourly rate9.08 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I grew up with 3 younger siblings (youngest being special needs) and I babysat them more times than I can remember...and back then...more times than I wish I had to (the plight of being a teenager :).) Now I am a mother of my own 19 month old son. I worked in various childcare centers based in Delano, MN throughout high school. I was a summer nanny at age 12 for a 1 1/2 yr old potty training girl (so I am familiar with the challenge.) In college I was a nanny for a boy beginning at age 3 months until he was nearly 1 1/2 yrs; his mother mainstreamed him for social growth. I have babysat for many families since the age of 12; some neighbors, some friends and family, as well as for unfamiliar families by word of mouth.

The neighborhood I grew up in began to have a lot of younger children around the time I was 12, which was when I started babysitting. I started off with just watching the children during family and friendly gatherings, then during weekends I would watch the kids as the parents went out to dinner. I kept with the weekend babysitting and would help others with their kids after school and during the summer.
