Why a career in child care is perfect for you
June 23, 2016 / Sharnie Carter
Are you thinking about a career in child care? Then here are 5 reasons why working in child care would be the perfect career for you:
Support a child’s development
A vital duty of working in child care is supporting a child’s development. You will have to organise activities to help with their learning. Some of these activities include: problem solving, questioning, experimenting, rhyming games, counting games and creative activities such as art, music and dance. Looking after older children will also mean helping with homework and making sure they understand information.
Share your knowledge
Working in childcare is very rewarding, especially as you will be able to share your own knowledge with them. Helping children to develop their understanding of things can help them grow and that could be all thanks to you!
Watch children grow
From changing diapers to watching them start their first day of school, can be very emotional and a happy moment for anyone working in this industry. Seeing the child you looked/still look after grow up and take new steps in their life will motivate anyone working in this field.
Wide range of job opportunities
There are a wide range of child care career paths you can go into from becoming a babysitter, a nanny, family child care provider and a child care centre worker. You can even set up as being self-employed. As people’s lifestyles get busier the demand for child care is increasing and parents and other family members are unable to look after their child, which means they need you!
Working with children is fun
If you love being around children, then this is the perfect career for you. You will be able to spend your days supporting their development, teaching, playing games, entertaining and improving their social skills. Although children may become challenging occasionally, the good times will defiantly outweigh the bad.
