March 2018 Student Spotlight – Christina Soliman

I began my career in early childhood by babysitting for the kids in my neighborhood and I really enjoyed watching kids.  After I graduated, I got my first job in a child care center and haven’t looked back!  My favorite time of day to spend with the children is story time.  Their favorite time of day is outside time chasing bubbles and riding bikes.  I love watching the children learn new things.  I enjoy seeing their smiling faces when they come in, getting hugs from them, and seeing them learn something new.

I obtained my CDA through ChildCare Education Institute and it was a great program! I would recommend anyone to go through the CDA program with CCEI. I would love to continue to work with children by opening up my own child care center.

I currently live in Ft Myers, FL.  In my free time, I watch my boys play baseball and soccer and I enjoy crafts.  In the future, I definitely see my career continuing to work with children.
