A day in the life of a Child Worker
• You will work with children
• Many employers offer free or discounted childcare to employees
To become a childcare worker you need to have a high school diploma or GED, and complete an ‘on-the-job’ training.
As a childcare worker you will teach and take care of children while their parents are unavailable, because of work or other matters. The job is almost the same as the job as a babysitter. A childcare worker manages the child’s day. Childcare workers play with the children, bathe, dress and also feed them. To be a childcare worker you will need to love children, be energetic and have much patience. Childcare workers can be hired by government and large corporations to run in-house daycare centers or by individual families. When they are hired by individual families they can live-in the house of the family, give 24-hour assistance and or do cooking duties. It all depends on the choice of the family.
