My past childcare experience: I have been a sitter since age 11. I work 15 hours per week with a local family. The children are ages 5, 3, 14 months, and 3 months. I was an assistant teacher at a Daycare and Learning Center for 2 years, where I worked with children from ages 1 to 13. From there I nannied for a 5-year old boy for 4 months until circumstances allowed for the mother to stay home with her son and new baby girl.
Additional Comments: Of all the jobs I have had, none has compared to my first experience as a nanny. It was short-lived, but affected my life tremendously. The family was terrific, and the child was one of a kind. Adopted from the Philipines at age 3, he had quite a bit of catching up to do before kindergarten. In the time we spent playing and doing homework together, there was a notable difference in his English, numbers, and primary knowledge. These changes were evident when I would pick him up from school and he could not wait to give me a note from the teacher commenting on how extraordinarily well he was progressing. He went into his first year of school lacking confidence, and within the first 3 months he was ahead of the game and loving it. This overall change was amazing to see and even moreso to be a direct contributor to. I was excited to be able to find another family (of 4 all under age 5!) and be able to learn from them, as well as to help them learn, all while having fun!
