I’m a nanny because I need a steady job, and I figured that since I love kids, this would be the perfect option :)

My past childcare experience I have been taking care of children since I was 11 years old. My parents divorced when I was very young and I had to step up and care for my toddler brother. Even though I was young myself, it taught me responsibility and I had no choice but to grow up. Besides taking care of my brother I would also babysit for cousins, neighbors, and family friends. I also feel like I have a great amount of experience because when I was in middle school my mom became pregnant with my little half brother. Having a mother who worked full-time at a restaurant was extremely hard for our family. Again I had to help raise another brother. I almost consider him (7 years old now) to be more as my son, than my little brother. I grew up cooking, cleaning, bathing, and chauffeuring my younger siblings. I also took some Child Development classes throughout high school, which included CPR certification. I don't have much experience with children who have special needs but I did help my older sister take care of a 2-year-old girl who suffered from Cerebral palsy. I am also willing to learn more and expand my experience. I plan on getting my college degree in either Child Development or Family and Child Studies. I can also provide references on request.
