I have extensive babysitting experience, most recently with three families living around my university, while I was at university. I really enjoyed getting to know all of the kids and was always flexible as to the requests of the parents with taking care of their children in different ways. For one family, I spent all of Tuesday with the children, from the time they got back from school to when they went to sleep. These afternoons and evenings involved helping with homework, making dinner, cleaning up the house a bit, walking the dogs, and really getting to know them and keeping them engaged. The parents were confident in having me drive the children around to various after school activities. With the other two families, I babysat more irregularly after schools and on weekends. I love to stay active with all of the children I babysit and am open to any Read more and all recommendations from the parents! Other work that I have done with children involves being a long-term mentor for a child while at University, a camp counselor for a YMCA overnight summer camp and an Americorps summer intern to plan programming for children in an affordable housing community. Now that I am in the Bay Area, I have one job babysitting for a 1 1/2 year old in SF and look forward to meeting more families.
