Full-time hours

Before the age of 14 I started volunteering at a church nursery taking care of children ages 1-7. At the age of 14 I was hired for a part time position at the same church nursery and continued working there while in high school. In addition, my sister was a nanny for a 3 year old named Gabby for about 2 years and I often accompanied her and helped out wherever I could. My cousin also recently had a baby and I have babysat for her. I've had an assortment of babysitting jobs in the interim, but very few during college because I haven't had access to a vehicle.
