Fun work environment
Babysitting (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJune 11, 2015
Playing with children making sure they were taken care of
I learned that children require constant love and care.
The hardest part of the job is when I don't know what the child is crying for but eventually I figure it out .
The most enjoyable part is when I see the smile on the child's face.

Being comfortable with my job
CARE GIVER (Former Employee), Toronto, ONFebruary 25, 2015
Pros: being able to love my job.
Cons: non
My typical day at work would be greeting children and making sure that they are comfortable. Children are interesting and enjoyable and easy to be with. They are responsive and eager to learn and explore – more... and this makes the day exciting. I got along with co-workers because we always put the children's needs first.

The most enjoyable part of working wit children is that you go home with smile on your face each day and you are able to have a peaceful and pleasant night's rest. – less

Making sure the kids are fed, and always busy doing something other than being on their technological gadgets, the children were easy to manage due to the fact I'm excelled in child care, the hardest part of the job was getting them to settle down for even 10 minutes due to their young age, I enjoyed every part of the job it was a great experience.

Babysitting
Babysitting (Former Employee), Thorold, ONMarch 17, 2014
Pros: being with children
Cons: not enough money, hours or a steady job
I baby sat for quite a few years for family members and family friends. I enjoy working with children but it wasn't a steady job, it was to help out. It made me a more responsible teenager taking care of younger children, cooking for them, cleaning, bathing them etc.

I would go to on a Friday or Saturday and do a 20 hour shift. I would cook and clean for two kids.
I learned about patients and how to keep a well organized home.
The hardest part of the job was being told no and handling tantrums.
The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the kids playing and seeing them happy.
