I am looking for a part time job starting on June 2016 that makes me interact with children. I have 6 years of experience with kids; I have been working as a full-time babysitter with the same family for almost 6 years. They have a 7, 12, and 14 years old boys. We would take many trips to the parks, libraries and museums around the area, short hikes and many spontaneous outdoor things. We love to do to do arts and crafts, paint, color, and make music. In the mornings I basically have to prepare them breakfast, play with Legos and others games, prepare their lunch and walk them to the bus stop. In the afternoon; I got them off the bus and do homework, drive them to sports practices or any activities they had during the afternoon. I stared with them 6 years ago; they were too young at that time.
