It's easy to discuss what you love about your job, but how do you approach the challenging aspects without sounding like a whiner? Everyone will have downsides when it comes to their career, but it's how you approach those challenges that matter the most.
Choose one thing you would change, if you could, and discuss what you do as a workaround. Then, finish on a high note by considering the best part of your role as a daycare worker.
"Working with children can mean unpredictable situations all day long. As a highly organized person, I believe this is the most challenging aspect for me. However, the spontaneity that children love can also be a lot of fun. I most enjoy seeing the excitement on their face when we have a surprise activity, or they learn a new skill. Seeing a child so happy and excited to show off their newfound knowledge is truly the best feeling."
"For me, the most challenging aspect of childcare is seeing a child who is not confident in who they are. I want every kid to feel like they can accomplish anything in the world! I overcome this by giving these kids lots of praise and encouraging them to try new things even if they think they will fail. My favorite part of working with children is seeing them flourish through encouragement, confidence-building, and opportunity."
