West Hartford$10.70/hr | < 1 yr experience
I have past experience with boys and girls whose ages ranged from newborn to 9yrs old. I cared for one family of 3 boys for approximately 3yrs. During that time I helped with anything from taking the boys to their karate classes to diaper changes and baths and I was also around to help with birthday parties and watch the kids while the parents went away for the weekend. One of the main rules I follow is that I am working and getting paid, so there is no reason the kids should be watching tv..I make sure that while I am with them I give them my full attention and try to play sports, read, etc. and avoid TV and video games.
