Nanny/Babysitter

(5)
I have been interested in childcare from an early age. My earliest memories are of playing with my baby dolls and caring for them as I saw my mom do. When I reached the age of 11, I applied for and graduated from the American Red Cross babysitting course. After obtaining my certification my parents allowed me to babysit children in our neighborhood, providing that they would be available in the case that I needed assistance. As I became older and my childcare skills increased I was selected by multiple families to provide weekly care for their children when they were away. A few of the families were: a family with 6 children, ages 4 months to 11 years, another family had 4 children, ages 6 to 12 years. the next family had 5 children including triplets, ages 3 months to 6 years, and also another family with 3 children, ages 1 to 6 years old. I have been a nanny, as well as the occasional sitter when mom and dad are looking for a kid-free night out! In high school while my other friends worked at a food chain restaurant, or clothing stores, I continued to provide childcare for these families, and as well as being recommended to others. I have developed a deep, fun, loving relationship with the all the kids I babysit, and have previously babysat, as well as a trusting relationship with their parents. I don't intend for those relationships to slip away, as I adore all these families! Unfortunately, all grow older, and many of the little people I used to watch, are now old enough to care for themselves and their siblings, but they remain as brothers and sisters to me. They call me when they need to talk, they want advice, they want me to come watch their sporting or dance event, they have something funny to tell me, or simply because they have a new phone, and want to prank call Miss Karlyn! Currently, I am an undergrad student, studying pre-med with the intent of heading off to medical school in the next few years! I am also a certified cosmetology educator, and can cut/color/style hair, so the kids are guaranteed to look their best at all times.
