Full-time hours

I have taken care of two children from infants periodically on date nights. When they were able to go to school I'd put them on the bus and take them off of the bus and provide help with homework. Also, I'd provide over night care when the mother had to work night shift as a dispatcher. I was a live in nanny for two months where I helped take care of two boys. One boy was four years old and the brother just turned a year old. I would provide breakfast, provide out door activities, set boundaries, and help the four year old with school activities. While I was a live in nanny I also took care of my daughter. All of the kids played well together and I had them on a schedule. I'd also provide transportation when needed and go to doctors appointments.
