Probably One of the Best Jobs I Ever Had
Assistant Director of Child Care (Volt alkalmazott) – Edmonton, AB – 2019, június 14.
My whole day was spent with the kids - crafting, building, playing sports, teaching games, having conversations and reaching out to parents as needed. I took care of their nutritional needs, made sure they got to class, talked through anything that was on their minds and did my best to make sure each child in my care felt like they were cared for and appreciated. I learned that I prefer relational management techniques and hard conversations in person. I worked very hard to make sure all staff under my supervision felt heard and supported. The workplace culture was friendly, enthusiastic and playful. The hardest part was the long days and the exhaustion of being at work 12-14 hours a day five days a week but only getting paid for 8. The most enjoyable part was the relationships built with the kids and getting to experience their journeys with them as they grew and developed and learned.
If full time, excellent benefits and great beginners salary.
Long Hours and no work/life balance.
