Fun days, sunny days, rainy days, good days
Program Leader (Former Employee) – Ladysmith, BC – October 30, 2015
Typically you start your day walking in to kids being beyond excited to see you. Running to you to hug you. Smiles, laughs, and sometimes tears. It really was a job that you get to have fun and get paid for it.
I really learnt how to care for others, yet still having a backbone and not let others walk all over you.
Management was the best part of this, I was involved with the others in the company, keeping parents in the knows, and being in contact with the community. Doing the paperwork, the phone calls, pretty much everything to keep a daycare running. It was a lot but great.
My co-workers were always happy and easy to talk to, we all enjoyed our jobs and got to do what we all enjoyed.
The hardest part of this job was trying to tell kids the answer "no" because many would get upset and you wanted to just keep them happy.
The most enjoyable part of this job was literally getting paid to play.
Smiles, feeling like a family, Welcoming feeling, staff parties
Long days, draining keeping up with kids
