Full-time hours

I've always loved caring for children ever since I was old enough to do so. I spent my summers in middle school and high school caring for my younger sister and cousins along with babysitting for family friends whenever needed. When I was 18 I worked at a daycare caring for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. This job was by far my favorite job I've ever worked at. I have not worked as a child care provider since that position, but I always jump at the chance to watch my friends children whenever possible. I iust absolutely adore children and would love nothing more than to help care for your little ones.
