In the last year, I've worked with children ages 2 months through 13. For 10 of those months, I worked primarily with children ages 4-13. I planned lessons for them, interacted with, supervised, and prepared meals and snacks for them in a school setting. Also, for about a year and a half, I was an assistant director at a child care center, which has involved some direct care duties and a high level of family interaction as well as education about child development, health, and safety. Lastly, I have been a paid private caretaker for two older infants, one preschooler, and two school age children (ranging from ages 9 months to 7 years)-- and occasionally their friends. Informally, I have babysat on and off for the last 10+ years of my life and enjoyed every moment of it! My experience caring for children goes far beyond traditional nannying and babysitting. I also have abundant formal experience working with children of all ages, adolescents, and young adults in diverse settings such as hospitals, college laboratories, refugee centers, universities, elementary schools, child care centers, and residential treatment facilities. At the center for child development (at the University of Akron), I was assigned to the toddler room for over one year and enjoyed every aspect of it! For the remainder of my term there, I floated in the toddler and preschool rooms. In terms of unpaid experience, I come from a large extended family of many younger cousins (currently ranging from age 3 to age 24) who I play with and care for during visits, and have a brother who is currently 9-years old with moderate autism. While living in WNY, I was actively involved in his daily care and treatment, and have volunteered with his school for individuals with special needs (Summit Educational resources). My previous special needs (developmental disabilities) care-taking experience is limited to children ages 9 and under.

I babysat since a teenager. When i went to college a nannied for a family for 2-3 years. I did all the chores around the house and took the kids to dance classes and baseball practices. I loved the kids as if they were my own. I felt like i had become part of their family. I most recently worked for a family with a 2 yr old and a 6 yr old. I picked up the 6 yr old from school and assisted with homework. I had the 2 yr old full time during the day while 2-3 times a weeking watching another 2 yr old. I prepared meals, snacks, light housecleaning, kids laundry and activities, outdoor play at parks and back yard and indoor play (they didn't allow children to watch tv). We did many crafts and projects.
