A childcare provider who doesnt like kids?!?

I have been a childcare provider for the past 20 years.  I met with a family last week who is in need of care.  They asked me if i like children. I love kids and asked them why they asked. They told me that their last provider told them after a few weeks of their children being in her care that she really dont like kids.  I dont understand how a person would choose to be around children all day if they dont like them. any providers out there who dont like children?

Even if you didn't like kids, I wonder why would you admit to that?

Maybe she started out loving and has become burnt out

Sadly, many people think of it as "babysitting" and dont think of it as a job, but something to do for easy money

Toward the end of my illustrious childcare career, I didn't really like any kids but my own. :/

She must have been doing it strictly for the money. How sad for the children--and for her! She really needs a different occupation.

I just got offered a job and I really need one but I really don't like other people's kids. So I kindly declined the position.

I would never work in a daycare...simply because, I ONLY like my child. I have no patience for other peoples children, and I often get annoyed with other peoples kids very quickly.

Why someone would willing become a daycare provider when they don't like children....is odd and somewhat scary.
