Hi Amy,

I am not a current child-care worker, but I worked in this field for about 3 years. I liked the adaptability of the job, working with kids, and aiding in their development.

Since kids' emotions and behaviors constantly change, I gained valuable experience with staying adaptable. For example, the job responsibilities included doing academic activities in the classroom, helping with lunch and nap time, and play time outside.

Next, I chose child-care because I enjoy working with kids. I liked being able to help with their social, emotional, and physical development. I found joy in seeing them grow.

I hope this helps, and good luck!

Hi Amy! I've been working in child care for about five years now. I started my senior year of high school. I wanted to work in childcare because I love working with kids. They're a lot of fun, and you have the opportunity to have a positive impact on the children you work with. I work in an aftercare program at an elementary school for kids who can't get picked up from school right away by their parents. It's important to me to make it a fun experience for them after they've had a long day at school. I'm currently in college for graphic design and am planning on getting a job in that field once I graduate. But I have learned a lot from my experience working with kids, and I'll miss it when it comes time for me to move on!
