My experience with caring for children began when I was about 13 babysitting for neighbors and family friends. When I was 19 I worked for a daycare called Country Park Childcare. I worked with every age group but specialized with the toddlers. Towards the end of my time there I started a room for "waddlers." I ran this room by myself and enjoyed it greatly. I worked at the daycare for a little over 3 years. My duties were to take care of the children I was assigned, take them through their daily activities, prepare and feed them lunch/snacks, and clean the rooms I was assigned to. After the daycare I began to nanny for a family of 4 and I fell in love with the kids. My duties there were to do homework with the 2 younger girls ages 4-6, tend to the baby boy, age 6 months, and keep an eye on the 12-year-old. I also did laundry, made their grocery list, cleaned their house and played with the kids. I worked for them for 2 years, and had to quit at the end of my college career because I didn't have the time anyone. I stayed in close contact with the family and still babysat from time to time when they needed me. I also made very good relationships with various families at the daycare. I would frequently babysit for them when asked. To this day, I still take care of one families children. I pick the two children up from school every Wednesday and take them to dance, cook dinner, and do homework with them. I also babysit for them on the weekends at least twice a month. I have seen these children grow up and to say the least I feel a part of their family. It is wonderful to work for a family who is so open and friendly.

I helped raise and guide two different families children from birth until they were 3 and my services were no longer needed. I would be there when they woke up to feed, change, and play with. I would make sure all schedualed appointments were on track for the beggining week, take them to doctor appointments, play dates, and daily outings. I needed to keep a log of each day to update their parents on what went on, and make sure everyone was on the same page. I would plan different games and activities approved by the childrens parents on a weekly basis as well to make sure we were always keeping busy and having fun. I enjoyed every minute of it, even the bad days when nothing made them happy.
