I cared/nannied for a child, aged 10-12 while I was in high school. I drove him to his after school activities, picked him up from school, and helped him with homework. I also worked for them in the summer, and I spent all day with him. We would occasionally work on math, and we would spend time outside each day. I also worked in a preschool my first semester at college. I was a teacher aide and worked an afternoon class with kids aged 3-5. I helped with snack time and play time outside, making sure that they didn't get into too much trouble. Also, I have been babysat before for kids aged 3-7, just for a few hours if their parents went out.
