I used to baby sit for both of my neighbors. One family only had one child, he was about 5 when I started watching him, and he's 11 now. I'd watch him whenever his parents needed a night out and after school until his parents got home. I'd pick him up from the bus stop and walk him home, help with homework and by the time we were done, one of the parents would be home. My other neighbors had two children who are 7 and 3(almost 4) now and I've watched them since the oldest was about 3. I'd go over and watch them while they're parents had a night out. I'd go over around 6, the parents already took care of dinner most nights and told me what the kids could have for a snack before bed. I'd just hang out with the kids; play games, watch tv, color, until it was time for bed. I'd give them their snack, make sure they brushed their teeth and went to the bathroom and once that was all done, I'd put them to bed and go back downstairs and read or watch tv until the parents got home around 2 in the morning then I'd go home. I also took a preschool course my senior year of high school where I taught a class of preschoolers with my class. My teacher would help when needed, but for the most part, it was us who made the lesson plans and put everything together and taught everything to the kids. Other than that, it's just typical babysitting of my little cousins for a few hours while their parents ran errands.
