Today was a good day. As I mentioned in one of my previous blogs I have recently taken on a new role at my work as room leader in a Toddler room. For those who dont know childcare terms; this means I am in charge of a room and of looking after 8-10 under 3 year old children on a daily basis Mon-Fri.
Leading up to starting this position I was quite emotional, not in the sense of crying and been depressed or anything… more in the way that I was anxious to get started… I could not switch of my brain and the 1,000 questions running through my head. What am I going to do? How will I set up my room? How will I handle Toddler tantrums (as previously I worked with 3-5 year olds)? What if I fail? Will I get along with my assistant in the room? The list went on and on…
I am now three days into my new job. The first day I felt lost, the second i moved my room around and today was such a great day that I left work feeling ontop of the world. Today just worked. I have been receiving positive feedback from other Educators, My Boss, Parents and my children are responding well to the program/the room routines.
Normally I am a stress head so for me to leave work today feeling accomplished and content about where im at, is rare yet something I felt needed acknowledgement. I dont always reconise or make a fuss when I have done well or am happy, incase of jinxing it I guess… I find myself silly thinking like that though. Today was good. Tomorrow who knows but let me enjoy today 🙂
Stay tuned- J
