Full-time hours

I have been around children for many years now. Throughout high school, I have had multiple internships at both pre-kindergarten and an elementary school with children of various ages (3-10). I have babysat for neighbors as well as family friends. My sister has twins (a boy and a girl) who turn three this coming August, and I have cared for them since they were young infants. She has a 13-year-old at home as well, who I have also cared for for about six years now. I have taken on many responsibilities including changing diapers, preparing dinner, baths, and bedtime. When taking care of children, I like to be as much involved in their activity as possible. For example, if it is a nice day outside, I would much rather spend it with children outside at the playground than sitting at home watching television. I am a big fan of engaging children and doing activities with them. I hope to work with children as part of my career so I am very devoted to making sure I care for them the best way possible.
