I've taken care of my brothers since they were born. I've also watched my cousins and my roommate's sister quite a bit. In my senior year of highschool (just last year), I spent my free time volunteering with a Kindergarten class. I have a lot of experience with high energy children. One of my brothers has ODD and the other has Asperger's Syndrome. My roommate's little sister has Down's Syndrome. Right now, I have a morning job with a 1.5 year old, so I'm getting more experience with the younger children as well. I'm also about to end an afternoon job with a family who has children between the ages of 5 and 10.
