Childcare workers need good speaking skills to provide direction or information effectively and good listening skills to understand parents’ instructions.
Good judgment is important for childcare workers so they can respond to emergencies or difficult situations.
Childcare workers should be able to work well with people in order to develop good relationships with parents, children, and colleagues.
Childcare workers should be able to respond calmly to overwhelming and difficult situations.
Working with children can be physically demanding, so childcare workers should have a lot of energy.
