High energy trying to create solid foundation

A typical day at work requires a person to of had adequate rest. Caring for children requires lots of energy,participation and interaction,this is a must in order to be a part of a child's world.Children are continuously learning from their environment and especially from the adults who care for them.It is always important to be aware of ones behaviour and attitude around children. Management should adhere to recognise the hard work and dedication of front line staff. Children are unique and come from all types of backgrounds. Therefore it goes without saying that rightly or wrongly there will be many learnt types of behaviours which have been transferred to children which will then be transferred to the carers of children. Working in partnership with parents and valuing their input has become a big part of the workplace culture. This goes along way to ensuring a child's individual needs are prioritised. However the hardest part of the job in an Early Years setting is keeping up with the paper work. Less and less time seems to be spent interacting with children, as more time is spent carrying out daily observations on children. Satisfaction and a real sense of achievement comes when children run with their arms open wide towards you, this indicates to me that they are happy and I have sense that I must be doing something right.

Pros

Acquiring new knowledge everyday

Cons

Long hours

Enjoyable atmosphere and children

Greet the children and parents, registration is time to have a chat to the children about things they have been doing. Observations on the children whilst playing alongside them if invited. I have learnt a tremendous amount of knowledge surrounding the learnning and development of children and working alongside families in Early Years. The hardest part of the job is the paper work management are requiered to complete. Helping children develop and learn by supporting them in their interests.

Pros

watching children develop

Cons

Management paper work

Fun Workplace

I enjoyed working at early years as I had a good bound with the young children. I enjoyed playing games and reading them books. I learnt how to keep the children happy as in reading books, playing games and going outside. The hardest part of this job was watching a young child cry as I wasn't able to make sure they was ok as this was only work experience I'd have to refer back to a teacher. My most enjoyable part of the job was making pancakes and sat with the young child watching them learn how to butter there pancakes and put a limited amount of sugar onto there pancake. I enjoyed this placement a lot as it boosted my confidence a lot as I got great feedback from the teachers.
