If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
With children from 4 to 5 years old is a very different world, they see the world with curious eyes, everything is something new and beautiful, you have to have an inexhaustible energy level, thousands of ideas and be willing to see the world from their eyes. For example, Holly is a very loving child and wants to be the center of attention, she loves to dress up as a princess and play with dolls, Lukas is a quiet and very obedient child, he likes to share with his classmates and wants to show me all his new toys and Isaac is the leader of the group, he likes to set his rules and set a good example, so that everyone is comfortable in class and I do not scold them, although sometimes he wants them to play things only that he likes.

With children from 9 to 11 you see life differently, they are full of energy and eager to learn thousands of things, although they are calmer in terms of moving, now they are looking for thousands of answers to everything around them. I had in this class a girl named Sofia and she was a very special girl because for her age she already knew a lot of English, so her knowledge did not fit with the class and she should be in a more advanced class, there was another girl named Julieta, she was focused on her study until her best friend entered in the academy and she did not concentrate anymore.

With children from 12 to 16 each one is a special case, here they are on the way to find their true self, know the world with its rules and are constantly calling attention because they want to be heard, they have a wide perception of the world and much more with technologies and social networks. Many were already starting to come out, especially the 15 year olds, here in Colombia it is a huge celebration.
