Phil tries his hand working at a day care center

Posted: Updated:
HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C. -

Three years old is an important time in a child's development. It's so important that we here at WNCN thought we should have Phil "fill in" in a classroom full of 3-year-old kids to help in their development.

In this week's edition of "Phil Fills In," Phil went out to The Learning Experience, a children's day care center located in Holly Springs.

Phil went into the experience thinking, "how difficult could this be?"

Within the first five minutes, he quickly realized it would be very difficult.

Phil showed up to help teacher Rakhee Patel, but she really helped him.

She talked him through the day, from crying students to dance sessions, they did it all.  

"The hardest part of my day is saying goodbye to them," Patel said.  

And in the end, Phil had to say goodbye too.

Watch the video for Phil's full experience. If you would like Phil to fill in at your job, e-mail today@wncn.com.
