Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

My experience with children has a nice variety. I have been volunteering at xxx. This means keeping track of the kids, keeping them occupied and focused in between scenes at rehearsals and performances, helping them learn their lines and practice their parts, making sure they are on time for entrances, being quiet and organized and best prepared for their role. Rewarding and fun. I have been volunteering for over 10 years. I have a 13-month-old nephew whom I cherish. We love reading together, flap books are his favorite, and playing with blocks. I babysit on date nights, during hair appointments, and business trips, etc. My boyfriend has two kids. I have watched both on days/nights when my boyfriend has to work, speak, etc. We play games, do crafts, play outside, go to fun activities, make sure they are fed and get them to bed. I have driven them to and from events.
