In high school I was the nursery leader for our church. I was the one who was in charge of finding someone to watch the children (most of the time it was me)and coming up with games and activities for the children.
I've been a baby sitter since I was 13 for all the families in my church.
In the summer during high school I was nanny for two of my cousins in Indianapolis while my aunt and uncle worked and went to school. I made sure that the boys were taken care of and that they had fun. I'd take them to museums, fairs, parks, the pool, movies and many other places that allowed them to use their imaginations and develope and become who they are.
After high school I had a nanny job in New Jersey for 3 children, 2 boys and a girl, all under the age of 5. The middle child (the little girl) had CF and so I have had experience with disabled children. While there, it was my job to take the oldest to school, get the other 2 up and dressed and take the little girl to physical and occupational therapy. I cooked, got the kids dressed and ready for the day, and whatever the kids needed I made sure that they had it.
While I lived in Kansas (for 2 1/2 years), I was the go-to baby sitter for my aunts and uncles and my brothers. While there I had been the au pair to a family with 3 teenagers. Whenever the parents had to go somewhere overnight or on vacation I'm the one that they would call to come over and make sure that the girls had everything they needed and they were taken to the places they needed to be taken to (school functions, games, groups, etc.). Also, since I have moved away from there they have called me to stay with the girls while the parents went on their honeymoon.
I am currently in a nanny position that I have had in Texas since the January 1, 2012. My contract will be ending on June 15, 2013. While here my job is to get the children ready for school, make their lunches, feed them breakfast, walk them to and from school, make sure homework is finsihed in a timely manner, teach teach them how to clean up after themselves, supervise them in their chores, do laundry, if they are sick I make sure that they are comfortable and if it gets to be too much it is my job to call the parents and inform them and if necessasary take them to the doctor. I am nanny to two children a boy and a girl whom are both school age.
