I loved the opportunity to understand childhood development through interactions with kids. Being able to teach and spend time with kids of all backgrounds helped tremendously to further my education in psychology.
What I wish was different
Sadly, the center was undergoing some financial difficulties during the months I worked there. This meant that the staffing situation was fraught and sometimes tense.
If you get a chance to work with children I highly recommend it. I learned skills in leadership, communication, team-building, organization, planning, and it overall helped to further my education.
