Childcare Worker Career
Child care workers provide nurturing care for children when their parents are at work.
In general, they maintain a safe play environment, monitor, observe and draw conclusions about children’s behavior and learning progress, and plan activities that foster children’s ability to achieve developmentally appropriate goals. They may work with a lead teacher or director to plan these activities, and the place they’re employed may provide resources for this as well. They also communicate with parents regularly, at the beginning and end of the day.
