A fun working environment. Working as part of a team and actually having lots of fun with children.
It can be emotionally and physically tiring some days, because you’re pretty much doing everything for the children that their parents would do – feeding, toileting and so on – but it is so rewarding knowing you are helping them learn skills that they will use for the rest of their lives.
Seeing a child learn something for the very first time.
Physical and mental exhaustion. Managing the competing needs of children.
