The Childcare Assistant specialty is valuable because it serves not only children, but also the entire society by extension. It is due to the fact that the exercise of this profession relates to the preschool age, which is considered to be a particularly critical period for the development of a child's character and personality. As a result of focusing on the love for the child, meeting his basic needs, while also taking into consideration his interests, stimuli are given for his all-round development. Therefore, it is not simply about practicing a profession, but also about performing a function.
