I have been a mom since 1985 and a babysitter since the late 1970's. I was a nanny for a popular political figure while still in high school. I was raised in DC. I just gave away my age, but taking care of children has kept me young. I have matured but I loved to play. I believe in teaching children respect and having fun, and going on adventures. I love walks around the neighbourhood, trips to the library, to the park, drives to the lake, library for story time, or trips to the local museums. I think you can teach a child anywhere as long as you bring creativity to the table. I like Arts and Crafts time and video and popcorn time too. Structure is very important and I implement that into the daily routine. I am very flexible and try to work with a families schedule. I am looking for a summer time job in Virginia where I live or Nevada where I love the weather, I come with excellent reference. Rates vary. I am available for summer hire. I have my own transportation and insurance. Thank you for your interest. Kate

since I was 12 I have been babysitting and providing childcare. I am very passionate about children. I will not stand by as children are playing, I am right on the floor crawling around beside them.

My mother had my brother and I while she was still young and she came from a large family so we were the oldest of dozens of cousins. I spent a large amount of my time growing up babysitting for family members. I also did random babysitting for family friends before being old enough to get an outside job. I spent two years working with a respite program for special needs children, including working for a summer at the vacation bible school. As a senior in high school I was in an Early Childhood Education course that housed a preschool during the mornings. I have also taken an Early Childhood Education course in college. I have friends and a brother that have children from newborn to 8 that I enjoy spending time with and taking care of when I have the opportunity.
