Ellen’s Bio

I began babysitting at age 14 for members of my church family. I have experience with all ages of children, both boys and girls. To describe my experience in better detail, I will list the ages of the children, the gender, and duties I performed while caring for them.

Family One:
2 boys, ages 5 and 12
For this family I prepared dinner, supervised outdoor play, cleaned the house, and bathed, read stories, put them to bed. The 5 year old was very cuddly and liked lots of attention. The 12 year old was very hyper and it took lots of patience and effort to get him to listen to me.

Family Two:
4 boys, ages 3, 7, 12, 15
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Four hyperactive boys! The older two mostly kept to themselves. The youngest one has cerebral palsy so I had to give extra care and attention when moving and holding him etc. The 7 year old was very helpful with this and attentive to his needs. Did a lot of cooking and cleaning for this family as well.

Family Three:
2 girls, ages 4 and 11
Lots of interactive play with these two (house, dolls etc.) The oldest did not like to listen to me, but after a few sits, she behaved. The youngest was very whiny and tried to imitate her big sister. Very needy kids.

Family Four:
2 girls, ages 13 and 7, 1 boy, age 10
Supervised the kids while they swam in the pool, helped them with homework and music practice. Great kids, always listened well

I hope this is a good reflection of the many experiences I have had. I am also First Aid/CPR certified.
