    Diana worked five years

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    Diana worked five years at a day care centre before starting study psychology.

    Re: Diana worked five years

    It's missing a preposition. More typical word order would be Diana worked at a day care center [AmE spelling] for five years before starting to study psychology.
    I am not a teacher.
