I babysat as a teenager and in college. I became a nanny when I was going to college. I met a couple who moved from France to live in the states. They moved to PA for a few years. Their children were two and the other was three months when I started. I would do house work, cook dinner, activities, and got them ready for bed.

I have been babysitting since I was 14 for multiple families and have worked as a recreation assistant for a parks and recreation facility for 5 years. The combination of this experience has given me the oppurtunity to work with various aged kids in several different environments. Most recently, I have provided care to a 5 year old boy since September of 2011, but due to him starting kindergarten, my services are no longer needed full time.
