Prerequisites – Generations Expansion, Military and Law Enforcement – International Super Spy

“A person’s a person, no matter how small.” Dr. Seuss

As families begin having children in this crisis, they realize they need someone to look after the little tykes while they go to work. They look outside their own household to help them raise their kids while they grub for a living. One dauntless sim in the family takes on the challenge of creating a warm, inviting and stimulating environment to help toddlers and children grow up to be responsible and productive sims.

Once a genius in early childhood development arises in the family, becoming a Daycare Specialist of great renown , all Day Care restrictions are lifted. The children of the neighborhood REJOICE!!

NOTE: The Daycare self employment profession only goes up to level 5.

NOTE: All Day Care restrictions are activities and interactions unique to the Generations expansion pack. If you do not own Generations, you may entirely ignore this category. There won’t be a non-Generations way of fulfilling this career. Day Care breaks new ground and doesn’t affect any really universal rules that aren’t already covered by another restriction, therefore it doesn’t need a base game applicable clearing method.
