Career Pathway: Childcare

“My favorite part of my internship is watching how much those children had developed in trusting in me and willing to ask for my help when they need it. Also, showing them how to become an independent child and watching them move on to the next level. That has made me feel proud of them and see smiles on their face when I am playing, they are feeling proud of their progress. I love being with them because sometimes I can learn something from them too.”
