The day i turned 16 and was able to legally work, i got a job at a daycare. I stayed there for about 2 years. While i was there i cared for children from the ages or 8wks to 4 years old. I then became a nanny for a 1 year old boy for 6 months. Unfortunatly, the family was from texas and was planning to move back home. Most recently, i was a nanny for a 8month old. My duties included learning, play, social time etc. He had strict feeding times and i was in charge of getting him to start on baby food.I was with this family for a year up until I moved to orlando. If an excellent opportunity were prompted, i would certainly consider moving.
