If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
I enjoy spending time with children. I have had different experiences, one of them was in my social service. I worked in a kindergarten where I developed skills in caring for children of different ages. In addition, another experience that has been much more meaningful is taking care of my sister, as I have been doing it since she was born. I like spending time with children. I have had different experiences, one of them was in my social service. I worked in a kindergarten where I developed skills in taking care of children of different ages. My job was to help the teachers to take care of the children, doing things like taking them to the toilet, giving them lunch boxes, or taking them to the park during breaks. Also, another experience that has been much more meaningful is looking after my sister, as I have been doing it since she was born. I have done and still do some things like changing nappies, preparing the bottle, cooking soup, taking her to and picking her up from primary school, helping her with her homework, bathing and dressing her, preparing breakfast, and playing with her. Similarly, I have two cousins and I have taken care of them since they were born as well. Now they are teenagers and one of them plays football, so sometimes I take him to his training sessions.
