Child care centers range from large well-equipped buildings with large inside and outside play areas to small private homes. Working with children involves extensive physical activity, mental alertness, and enthusiasm. Good general health, physical stamina and emotional stability are essential. The work is never routine, with each day marked by new activities and challenges. Child care requires bending, stooping, and lifting as workers attend to each child’s interest and problems. The environment is often noisy and workers occasionally have to contend with unpleasant odors. It can be an extremely stressful environment at times. However, there are many rewarding moments throughout the day.
Tasks of Child Care Teacher include the following:
This position requires a person who is able to plan and carry out a daily program designed to meet the physical and developmental needs of a group of children.
