For 6 years, I provided in-home childcare services for one family with 4 children, aged newborn through 11, one of whom was a stroke victim with symptoms similar to cerebral palsy. Daily care included caring for infant, walking children to school, transporting them to/from swimming lessons, church school, gymnastics, zoo, movies, etc. Cooked lunch for children and performed light housekeeping duties such as cleaning kitchen after meals and washing and folding laundry.
More recently, for 2 years for another family, I provided in-home childcare services for 2 children, aged newborn through 3. Daily care included caring for infant, preparing lunch, and playing, reading, and singing with 3-year old.
Most recently, in 2010, I spent over a year in Texas taking care of my great-granddaughter after she was born and until she was 18 months old. Daily care included caring for her, preparing meals, and playing, reading, and singing with her while her mother was at work.
