Full-time hours

I have a lot of experience in childcare. I started small jobs when I was 12 but at 13 I was babysitting twin newborn girls and their 2 sisters ,2 & 3 years old. I babysat them for about 3 years until they moved away. I have experience with special needs of all ages: newborn, infant, toddler, pre-teen, and teen (high schooler). My brother is also special needs. He is 2 years old and I currently watch him every day Monday-Friday while my parents are at work but that's about to end because my step dad is getting laid off. I make memories and he gives me new experiences everyday. His therapists come to out r house 4 times a week and I participate in the sessions, therfore, I have picked up on many games, crafts, and activities that children love to play but are also educational and help with their development.
