Hi, my name's Veronica Baragas with and I'd like to share with you daycare teachers working conditions. Well if you are new to the health care field, there's a few things that you can expect. First and foremost I would say to dress comfortably because you are going to be in an environment where hopefully you are you know, roaming around on the floor, you are picking up babies and most of the time it can be a mess. So working conditions could be anywhere from you know, six to twelve kids depending on what type of teacher you are. There's going to be lots of interaction with family members, parents, grandparents, close friends, so you're going to have a lot of communication. You need a lot of communication skills. Being able to tolerate you know, intense situations, working with real live you know, humans or you could say little ones, that are just learning and exploring and growing, it could be, you know, everyday could be a different day. And it will be so conditions can get pretty rough at times. A lot of the times you're going to have to go without a break. You know, you may eat lunch much later than everybody else. So you're going to have to be very flexible and make sure that you have a high tolerance and lots of patience. Working conditions can get pretty crazy when it's time to go outside or you know, everybody hasn't eaten yet. So make sure that you come in with a you know, good smile, I'm sorry with a big smile and you know, day full of energy for enough for a full days work because you're going to be running around with reading books, changing diapers. Maybe you won't change diapers if you're in an older class but you'll be you know, wiping noses, you know bandaging up cuts and bruises. So you're going to be, you know you're going to be playing nurse and mommy and daddy, you know, friend. So you can expect anything to happen especially when you're working with kids. So, definitely just make sure that you have lots of energy and patience.
