    I have a good contact with children

    I would like to say that I get along with children. Is it possible to say:

    I have a good contact with children.
    or
    I have a good connection with children.

    Or is "get along with" the only possibility?

    "I get on well with children."

    Thank you.
    What about my sentences? Are they correct?

    Of yours, the one with "connection" is okay. "Contact" sounds a bit off.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
