I'm a woman of 62 and have loved children and working with them all my life. I started babysitting at the age of 12 and had a great following. I worked at a daycare center in town when my own two daughters were in elementary school, so I could be there when they needed me. I worked for the center for over 10 years then went on to become a nanny for two little boys. I worked for this family for 5 years until we moved from Conn. to Arizona. In January 2001 I became a nanny for a two month old boy and took care of him until June 2005. He is now in nursery school. Nov. 2006 I have had the pleasure of taking care of two small children who moved to Seattle, Washington. June 2009. June 2009-June 2011 taking care of next door neighbor's son who will be starting kindergarten in July. I would like to work in the Chandler, Gilbert or Mesa area.

Tell us your experience working with newborns and infants. What did you find most
What did you find most rewarding?
I love taking care of newborns and infants and never really found it to be a challenging job, only to have the babies feel secure and loved! That is my reward! Most of the children I took care of were infants when I started working for the families.
