I am the third of six children, so from an early age, I would help my mother care for my younger siblings. (I still do when I visit home! Especially by transporting the boys to and from school, practice, games, academic competitions or running errands for my parents.)
I was a live-in nanny during my college breaks for a family with two daughters (2 y/o and 8 y/o). I helped not only with child care (changing diapers, helping with homework, entertaining the girls with arts and crafts or outdoor activities) but also providing a hand in the kitchen or laundry room whenever Mom needed it.
I also worked as an aftercare teacher in school all 4 years of college. I oversaw the middle school program my last semester and have experienced looking after and playing with children in elementary school.
