I worked at a childcare center for 4 years and worked with children aged 2-5. I was in charge of the activity room and making sure the children were being looked after. I usually watched about 5 kids at a time. I was also in charge of their meals and naptime. I also nannied for twin girls for 2 consecutive summers and was in charge of their whole day. I watched them from 6 am til 7 or later just depending on when their parents got home. I took them to their activities as well as to and from school. I also have babysat the same family for the last 5 years and actually met them through the childcare center I worked at. I also have been babysitting for various families for the last nine years.

I am a college graduate from CW Post, with my bachelor's in early childhood education. The reason I've decided to choose teaching as my profession is because of my love, and passion for children. I have years of experience working with children of all ages from babysitting, nannying and also working as a head teacher for a daycare center. I'm also a very proud mommy to a very special little boy! My natural mommy like personality has finally become a reality, and I love every moment of it. My promise to you, from one mommy to another (or daddy) is to always care for your child as if they were my own. Not only will they always be having fun, learning and exploring -- but also loved and safe.

My job is to get them off the bus from camp or school and give them a snack and entertain them until their parents get home from work. If the parents call and say they are going to be late i cook the kids dinner and sometimes give them a bath and put them to bed.
