I gained many valuable skills during my time at the YMCA. I built solid relationships with co-workers, and was assisted whenever necessary. I also learnt a lot of methods of dealing with challenging behaviours, and how to build a good rapport with students.

I enjoyed work but management was all over the place. Getting a straight answer was difficult. Lots of power struggles. Center director was on a mission to get rid of staff that were persevered to be loyal to other coordinators.

Good teamwork, entertaining children - no day was ever the same. However, lack of support from higher up and lack of understanding of duties of ground-level workers

My day sometimes looks like this. I arrive at 615, give children breakfast, ensure oldest child gets on bus at 8am for school. Baby needs a sleep at this point, once he is asleep I do painting or craft with 4 yr old. Baby wakes up, we have morning tea then we go for a walk to the beach or park to play. Then we have lunch and everybody lies down for a sleep for an hour or more. I read and have my break. Then we have afternoon tea, sometimes as a tea party on the floor. Then we play outside playing whatever imagination game the 4 year old wants to play, usually mums and dads or doctors. Then sometimes their mum comes back about 430 and I go back to my house to recover a bit before going out again to help lead youth group.
Pros
can sleep in afternoon if I am tired
Cons
early start
