Childcare workers
Description: Childcare workers care for children under the age of five. Those caring for infants and toddlers may change diapers, heat bottles, and rock children to sleep. Those caring for preschoolers serve meals, play games, read stories, and organize activities to help the children socialize and learn new skills. The work can be tiring, and workers must be strong enough to lift and move children.
