Childcare is a big responsibility. The biggest aspect of childcare is to keep the children safe and away from harm. You want them to be happy and healthy when you hand them back over to their parents. To be a good, responsible provider, you will want to make sure you know and understand how to administer first-aid, how to perform CPR, and what to do if a child is choking.
