There’s just something about working in child care that makes life a little more joyful. Sure there are stressful times, but there’s nothing quite like having little bodies wander in to your office with their teacher and say something just so silly, give the most magnificent cuddles. Not every profession is quite so lucky.
But there are times that even the best of us get caught up in our routines, duties and requirements. I see the teachers can get too caught up in writing out daily sheets, getting an activity done perfectly…they lose these joyful moments sometimes because their caught up in
something else. As a Director, in my opinion, it’s part of my job to keep the staff joyful and having fun. I want to see every staff smiling and playing and happy to come to work.
Mary Poppins is right, and a quote like this can remind us every day – that in every job, there is an element of fun, but for us…we’re just a bit luckier.
