My past childcare experience was amazing. I am an elementary education major so children are my life. My last experience was working at a summer camp where I had the ability to make creative activities that challenged the children physically, socially, intellectually,and emotionally. I was also given the opportunity to take fun and exciting field trips with them to different museums and theme parks. I also helped the children to keep their reading and math skills sharp by setting aside time each day to practice math and language, tutoring them when necessary. Although the parents thought I was a camper the first day, they all took very quickly to me and my energetic attitude. Seeing that I am responsible, respectful, and fun! Overall my last childcare experience was wonderful and I wouldn't change anything about it.
