Dylan’s Bio

      Children are my world. I have been babysitting since I was about 12-years-old and have loved it ever since. I first learned how to babysit by being a mother's helper. I got to learn how to take care of a child as a mother would. I was able to babysit for the first time on my own without any problems and with a lot of knowledge of children.
      I worked in the Infant Toddler room that Mount Desert Island High School provides for teen parents as well as teacher parents. That class was hands-on so I got to interact with many kinds of children including a few deaf children where I got to learn a lot about the Cochlear Implant. Assignments for the class included, but were not limited to, inventing new games or crafts, researching new games and crafts, researching toys and how each helped different age groups develop mentally. I learned how to change cloth diapers which was very different than the disposable diapers.
      One of the parents who had two daughters in the Infant Toddler room asked me to babysit every day for about two weeks starting the day after my high school graduation. I absolutely loved working with his girls as well as a friend of one of the girls for a few of the days. I have been called back to babysit for them multiple times and enjoy it every time. One of the girls was two and the other two girls were four.
      In the past I have babysat a 10-month-old, an 18-month-old and two years and older.
      I am now attending the University of Maine in Orono and majoring in Early Childhood Education. I hope to teach little kids up to grade three, but would like to become a Child Play Therapist in the long run.
      I am a Black Bear Mentor which is a program run by the Big Brothers Big Sisters program at the University. Every Wednesday I go to the Old Town Elementary School and meet with my "mentee" for two hours. We play board and card games, play on the computers, go outside, play basketball, go on scavenger hunts, draw, and do other crafts.
      I work at Epi's in Bar Harbor in the Summers as a full time job but plan on expanding my options. It is fun working at Epi's, but I would much rather spend my Summer job working with kids.

Great with Kids!

Dylan watched our two toddlers while we were visiting Bar Harbor and did an excellent job. She completed tons of crafts with the kids and kept them active/entertained for an entire afternoon. I would absolutely call her again when I visit Maine in the future.
