I have been babysitting ever since I took a class when I was 13 on the basics of babysitting at the hospital in my home-town. After several years of experience with all ages and situations, I took a more permanent position as a nanny for infant triplets. The triplets had been born severely pre-mature, thus the two boys had disabilities, so I learned to accommodate both their special needs and also the needs of their sister who was unaffected by the premature birth. I worked with the triplets for almost two years, in which I did overnight shifts, and managed the kids' needs independently. Not only did I entertain and stimulate the babies, I did housework, prepared meals, bathed, dressed, and monitored them. I helped with the boys physical therapy and continually exposed them to a variety of environments and stimulants. Now, as a college student, I pick up babysitting jobs around the community but nothing full time. My experience with childcare ranges from all ages; infants-teenagers. I have also been a camp counselor for years, which gives me more tools to use in instances of childcare. I am well prepared, creative, and adapt to new situations easily.

I have been responsible for a full-time childcare position off-and-on since the age of 12. I have always been an immensely responsible individual and I am trusted by all parents and children. As a 7th and 8th grader, I took care of 2-10 children for 8 hours per day, 5 days per week. Since then I have maintained an on-running weekend job babysitting 10 different families, each having 3 children ages 1-6. During Summers, I have had nanny jobs 40 hours per week for months at a time, while still maintaining the same weekend jobs. I have taken care of children with disabilities as well as multiples of infants. I have experience driving children, and I have always been as safe as possible.
