I have been at St. Michaels for 5 years and the thing that brought me to early child care is that I am very passionate and committed to working with young children. It is very rewarding to watch their growth and development every day. I’ve stayed at St. Michaels because of the bonds I form with the children and their families and because I am very happy to be a part of the wonderful team of caregivers at this centre.
I love coming to St. Michaels every day knowing that we are doing the best job possible to provide a wonderful, safe and positive environment for children where we are focused on making sure they have fun and where we give them the best possible learning experiences that will help them develop and get ready for kindergarten and life.
I enjoy outdoor play with the children because I get to see them run around, play with their friends and be free.
I am truly grateful for the many wonderful families I have met here and I look forward to future families who decide to join St. Michael and All Angels Day Care Centre.
The first time I started working at St. Micheal’s, I was a summer student and I did it for two years. It was a growing experience and I’m glad to say that I came back. Since late September of 2016, I have worked part-time primarily for the Junior Preschool room. Although I have not been at St. Micheal’s for very long, I feel like I have learned so much that I will carry for the rest of my life.
My favourite part of working with the children is outdoor time because it feels like there’s more room to be silly, encourage group play and really express their uniqueness. I love it as it’s such a positive experience to share in their joy and happiness.
I am constantly surprised and delighted by the children’s ability to grow and learn. I still feel surprised when I hear from parents that their kids talk about me at home. It really humbles me to think about how childcare workers have impacted their lives and it encourages me to be the best that I can.
Working at the daycare really reminds me that everyone is constantly learning no matter what age you are and that the best we can do is be open and help others on the way. The staff at St. Micheal’s have shown me this through how warm and caring they are to the children, parents and each other. I look forward to the rest of my time at the daycare and know that working here has made me a better person.
