Dana V. - Seeking Work in Summerville

My past childcare experiences have been throughout high school. I had been looking after girls ages 5-10 through a cheer camp at my school that we used to raise money and the children loved me. I love to be involved, play with kids and teach them new things. Then, I started watching over family friends' children while they go on dates. As I approached my senior year I started watching over kids for a few different families. I picked a 8 year old girl up from gymnastics practice, took her home, made her dinner, and waited for her mom to get home almost every Tuesday and Thursday. I also watched over a boy (6) and a girl (4) almost once every week for about 5 hours at a time. I also babysat a 3 year old boy sometimes with little notice at all because his mother is an emergency nurse so I would come whenever she would need me to, make him dinner, and put him to bed. There were several occasions in the families where their friends would come over, and I would end up watching and playing with 4 kids instead of 2.
