Full-time hours

I officially started babysitting for non-family members at the age of 13. When I started the family had a six month old baby and a two year old. I have been working on and off with this family for the past 7 years and they now have three kids ages 9, 7 and 5. Throughout high school I worked for many other families, most of the families I work have at least three kids. Ages go from infants to elementary aged children. I have currently been working as a live out nanny for the past 2 years to a family with three kids. When I started the kids were 3, 23 months and 3 months. They are now 5, 3 and 2. For all families I have done making simple meals/snacks, driving children to and from approved activities, baths, homework help, crafts, play time and more.
