Five Qualities You Should Have Before Jumping Into childcare

Before you reach out to our friends at COAD4Kids – New Philadelphia, ask yourself if you possess the following five qualities:


Patience is key to working with children. As a childcare provider (or parent), you’re tested every moment of every day. Work on patience regularly, as this is a critical skill you need for working with kids!


In order to help each child meet their full potential, you’ll need to keep open lines of communication with them, their parents, and co-workers (if applicable). Develop a plan for their growth and keep working with kids and their parents to achieve goals for their growth!


Empathy is a massive tool to have in your corner when working with kids. You’ll need to be able to understand their feelings, especially when they don’t quite understand them!

Energy (Or Perhaps, Lots of Coffee)

Kids are ALWAYS on the go! Having energy is key to being able to keep up with them without losing your mind.


Staying up-to-date with the latest training techniques will help you to be the best childcare provider. To get started with training, COAD4Kids – New Philadelphia wants to help! Look into their Child Development Associate (CDA) program that can help people new to childcare get paid while pursuing your CDA!
