Physical Demands - Caring for children can be physically demanding. A Teacher Assistant will occasionally be lifting and carrying children and equipment, and will spend time sitting on the floor and child sized furniture. A Teacher Assistant will be expected to clean and maintain equipment and facility, and will move throughout the community with children. Teacher Assistants will help children with their needs in the bathroom as necessary from diaper-changes to support learning the specific self-help skills needed to become independent in self-care.
