I began babysitting when I was fourteen years old. I babysat for a family with a newborn. As the family grew, I continued to babysit their children. They now have five children with the oldest being 10. When I went to college I began nannying through the summer. My first experience involved a family with three children, ranging in age from two to six. For the past three summers I have been a full time nanny for a family with three children. The following review is from the mother of the children I have nannied. "Kelsey is an amazing caregiver. She is very responsible and trustworthy. She is energetic. She works to keep the children engaged. She recognizes areas where our family needed assistance and took the initiative to work with our three children to help them grow in certain areas. For example, she spent extra time reading with our kindergartner. She helps the children grow while also interacting and playing games with them. She truly cares for children and encourages them to be responsible children. Over the three years she worked for us she became an integral asset to the family." Aside from being a nanny I have become a reliable babysitter for several families in the Omaha area.
