Lots of work to do but has a great opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many, many families :)
Cons: Tons of paperwork with short due dates
A typical day at work includes: singing songs, reading books from the DLM curriculum, doing art projects that are teacher led as well as child led, spending two hours a.m. and p.m. in outdoor activities, helping children during lunch, nap, and restrooming. What I learned is that it is very difficult to find enough time to get everything done that needs to be done and you want to do! The only prep time is during nap time and many children don't sleep. This is definitely the hardest part of the job but the most enjoyable part of the job is all of the moments you spend with the children. Nothing beats the smiles, hugs and hilarious things you will hear in this age group!
