Types of Children's Activity Jobs
There are lots of children's activities that you can be involved in and lots of children's activity jobs that you can do while at your work location. You may be required as an au pair, which is a higher paying job that will require you to look after just one set of children for their parents. This job needs you to be comfortable talking, playing, interacting, and entertaining children for any length of time.
You could be called for as a babysitter while the parents want to go out for an evening, and you will be required to look after the children and make sure that eat dinner, wash, and go to bed on time. This job will be over and above your usual au pair or child minder day duties and you will normally be paid directly from the parents which will be extra money for you.
During the day, the cruise liner or beach resort will expect you to be at your position, ready to look after any children or prepare fun children's activities for the day. Child minder cruise ship jobs will normally include a ship based activity center for children where you will spend most of your time working. Sometimes you will be hired for the land excursions if parents want to go separate ways and you along with other child minders will organize an outing for a group of children.
Child care jobs at beach resorts can also require day outings for the children, but there are usually so many children's activities at the resort that you could find yourself teaching and playing miniature golf with a group, or doing some arts and crafts, organizing a party, or anything else that is required.
There is normally a children's activity position which is a supervisory role. You will plan all of the events and activities for the week or duration of the cruise, and you will control and manage the entire children's section. You will prepare safety procedures, involve medical staff if needed, and keep an eye on all the child minders that work under you.
