Job Description for Childcare Worker

For a person who enjoys reading Dr. Seuss, playing with Play-doh or creating masterpieces with crayons, a career as a childcare worker may be very enticing. Not many people get to play at work, but that is exactly one of the responsibilities of a childcare worker. They not only play with children but also plan activities that are both enriching and educational. Childcare workers also help children develop good social skills, which are very important to a child’s development. Working in this field is much more than child’s play, however. The safety and well-being of the children they watch are in the hands of the childcare workers. Workers must therefore be vigilant and enthusiastic to keep up with the demands of energetic young children.
