I have worked in many different classrooms within our Hershey KinderCare. In the toddler room I enjoyed watching them grow and develop. In the infant room I liked getting to know the different needs of the children. In the tweenie room I was able to spend one on one time with the pre toddlers and watch them grow and develop. I am currently in the Preschool room where my imagination runs wild on the same level as the children in my classroom.
