My first "job" was helping a local daycare center when I was 14. Since then I have volunteered in watching large groups of children through girlscouts and other organizations, and have babysat for several families. I have been responsible for up to 6 children under the age of 8 on my own. I am am well versed in engaging with children through playing games, teaching, reading and singing, planning activities, organizing themed days and events, taking them on educational fieldtrips, being responsible for meals, daily exercise, cleanliness, and play dates. I have cared for children from them waking up in the morning to them going to sleep at night. So I am familiar with helping them get dressed, bathed or showered, brush their teeth, and use the restroom if necessary. I use positive reinforcement and discipline and have experience with difficult and/or special needs children.
