Professional Answer Examples
Answer example

"I have always loved working with children. The moment I turned 12, I completed my babysitters' course. I couldn't wait! A path in child care is no surprise to anyone who knows me best. I enjoy guiding, teaching, mentoring, and exploring with kids, helping them to create a keen sense of curiosity for the world around them while building unshakable confidence."

Answer example

"I chose a career path in child care after realizing that neo-natal nursing was not for me. I took a year off after my first year of nursing school, traveled, and volunteered across the globe. Through that experience, I rediscovered my passion for teaching kids. When I returned from my travels, I immediately enrolled in early child care and education. Today, I am here, thrilled to begin my new path in child care."
