I have been babysitting off and on for over 18 years. I am very comfortable with watching newborns - 12 years old. I am from a large family of 7 children and got my start with watching younger siblings, my cousins 4 children, and my older siblings friends children. As I got older I would babysit my friends children for them, my own little nieces and nephew and I used to babysit for a couple of families part and full time that hired me from care. com. I took a little break from babysitting after I adopted my own 3 children from foster care. Now that they are all in school full time, I am able to babysit again! Aside from my experience with babysitting I have also been a gymnastics instructor for over 8 years. Working with children ages 2 years- 18 years old ( I still occasionally teach gymnastics as a substitute teacher.)
I am not current on my certification for CPR. However, I have been certified 3 different times in the past for CPR /first aid/ AED for infant, child, and adult.
