Caregivers must be at least 21-years-old, dependable and provide their own transportation to and from work. Nursery workers provide care such as feeding, changing diapers, maintaining safe environment, putting children down for a nap, interacting with children by reading books, teaching a lesson, playing music and playing with toys and games. Hourly wage: $10/hour.
