If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
In my experience with children, we carried out activities such as painting, drawing, singing while we danced, singing the alphabet and naming the colors and parts of the body, we looked at books with pictures of animals, I always kept them animated and we played actively.We loved going out to the park to play or go for an ice cream, go to the beach and play in the sand.
You can trust me because I am a responsible and educated person, I keep the children safe all the time and I encourage the children.
I have an anecdote every year in the summer my cousins come from Switzerland and Italy on vacation to my country and I took care of them, they did not speak Spanish but while I took care of them we were able to communicate and learn the language, they learned Spanish and I learned a little of their language.
