“Having the opportunity to expand my knowledge on children, as I want to pursue a career in child life. I thoroughly enjoyed playing with children 5 days a week and creating bonds with them. There were fun activities during the day, however, some days went better than others, but I really had so much fun! One of my favorite days was when we had a water day and had water balloons, the kids really enjoyed that and it made it so much more fun seeing them have fun.”
