Experience: 1 Year
I have had paid work at a parent and child development centre. I supervised in the play area, created and prepared art activities as well as helped to prepare classroom activities. I had to make sure the play area, classroom and art equipment was cleaned. The children ranged from the ages of 8 weeks to 5 years. I learnt about looking after children as well as about developing them further both mentally and physically. This type of work also required me to interact with parents. I coached a high school girls hockey team for a season, including helping with skills and fitness, have babysat all ages, worked for a day care as well as a library. I have helped biology and science departments, set up the experiments and dissections in the labs. On top of this, I have helped to adjudicate science expo projects, where students the age of 15 to 16 presented a science experiment to me and I asked questions and graded their knowledge. I love working with children. It is one of my reasons for studying education at university, so that I can follow into a career of working with children. I have the time in my schedule to do and I am diligent, adaptable, well organised, experienced and will keep a good eye on the children in my care.
