Child care providers nurture and supervise children for parents while they are at work or away.
The type of work involved depends on the age of the child, the type of setting, and the amount of time the child spends in care. Monitoring and meeting the health, safety and nutritional needs of the client are the highest priority. Care providers also create and organize activities that help stimulate a child’s mental, physical and social development. For younger children, a care setting can prepare a child to enter school.
Must be 18 years old to hold this position.
