If you are looking for a fun, caring, energetic, responsible summer babysitter, look no further! I have been caring for children since I was one myself and my mother ran an at home daycare. My childcare experience ranges greatly, from babysitting on date-nights to volunteering in Special Education Summer School, and I have looked after kids of all ages and interests. Some of my favorite hobbies are arts and crafts, going to the beach, and pretty much anything outside. I also enjoy baking, movies, sports, video games, board games, and high-energy games during playtime (tag, red light/green light, hide & go seek with Nerf guns..). During summer vacation, kids' brains tend to somewhat go into hibernation mode, so I'm a strong believer in incorporating at least one educational activity per week. For example, one week we may go to a children's museum, another week we may play trivia games a couple times or watch an episode of Bill Nye (depending on their ages). I love all animals and have absolutely no problem with cooking and cleaning. I also have my own vehicle (2002 Honda CR-V) and best of all, lots of great ideas to have a fantastic summer!
This may very well be the last summer where I'll have an opportunity to become close with a family and care for their kids until I eventually have children of my own, so being granted the opportunity to work with a kindhearted, fun family this summer would mean the world to me.
