What do you like most about your job? Being an Early Years Educator, I am privileged to witness the development of our future generations and nurture the progression of children in all shapes and sizes. Children never cease to amaze me with their little quirky comments and just seeing the look on their faces when they have achieved a goal, no matter how small or how long it took, makes my job worthwhile. We are all still on a learning curve and sharing this with the children is rewarding.
