I currently am working at a Child Development center and after living and being raised in my mothers in home child care, I have seen the difference in the rules and how we interact with the children. I grew up thinking I had tons of brothers and sisters, we said I love you and they were apart of my family. A child development center is so different and I realize this is not how I want to work anymore. I want to be a nanny to children who will become apart of my family.
