I have been babysitting/nannying for 9 years now and it was grow from an after school job to something I truly enjoy doing and what sparked my interest in pediatric nursing. I began at the age of 12 as a babysitter for many families in the neighborhood. I began full-till nannying at 17. I have experience anywhere from newborns all the way to preteens and actually had the amazing opportunity to grow up with the very first families I babysat for which gave me experience across the board (They're now 11 and 8.) I was also blessed with an amazing younger brother who has cerebral palsy and I have been his in-home care taker for about a year now. As well as working with another family friend who has a son with special needs..
