Supply Full Time Summer Position, Guelph (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON16 September 2018
The overall daycare had people that were skilled in working with children, but also helped out students and new employees. The work was fast-paced for some days and when you're a student, there are chances to show how skilled one can be.

Great staff to work with, and a lot of experience with preschool and toddler age groups, flexible job position
Supply Full Time Summer ECE (Current Employee) –  Guelph, Ontario7 June 2017
Basically, this centre thrives on caring for the children as they would like to be cared for. The staff have a lot of patience and great ideas to help children when they are feeling different emotions. There is a lot of communication between families and their child. The daycare focuses on emergent curriculum, which is the most common for young children to learn in different settings that make learning through play an important aspect of a child's life.
The hardest part would be never knowing what to expect from a day's work with the children. It is not a terrible thing, but definitely, makes staff prepare and have a positive mindset going forward.
The most enjoyable part of the job is to be attentive to the children and let the children learn from their mistakes or through their strong skill set. I came into this career knowing that I will never have expectations for each child, I will always expect the unaccepted and that is what makes every child a joy to work with.
Pros
An abundance of outdoor play
Cons
Shifts are always uncertain
