Most people work in childcare because they love working with kids, but everyone has a different “why.” Working in a daycare comes with several benefits that will improve your day-to-day and overall life. We’re going to explain our top reasons why we love working at The Breakie Bunch in Michigan and why you would too!
5 Reasons Why Working at A Daycare Is for You
- Make a difference
- Work-Life balance
You Will Make a Difference Every Day
While you will make a difference in the lives of the kids you work with every single day, you have the chance to make a difference in parents’ lives, too. In addition, you will form relationships and friendships that you will carry with you throughout your life.
There aren’t many jobs that will allow you to make such an impact on a day-to-day basis—that feeling is something you can’t buy! So many kids who attend daycare make memorable connections with their teachers that they take with them throughout their schooling and lives.
The Ideal Work-Life Balance
We live in a time of burnout, so finding a job with the ideal work-life balance feels like a thing of the past. While flexible work-from-home jobs are all the rage, studies show that many people work even more hours, lose valuable downtime, and have trouble disconnecting from work.
Working at a daycare provides an excellent work-life balance! In addition, many daycares close at 6:00 PM and are closed on weekends and major holidays, meaning you never have to swap a shift to make plans with friends and family!
The Laughter is Endless
Little kid giggles are one of the best sounds out there. Their laughter is innocent and lights up a room. Now, imagine walking into work every day to that laughter. While some days may bring meltdowns, being able to turn that frown into a smile is a gift.
When you work at a daycare, you can bring joy and smiles to kids’ faces every day while working. It would be impossible not to smile. That joy and positivity will be with you all day long and well after your workday is over.
It Provides New Perspective
Gaining a new perspective comes with a uniquely personal experience. These experiences can shape your future and guide you to the path you are supposed to be on.
One of the best parts of working with kids is listening to their perspectives. Unjaded by the world around them, they keep it simple and inclusive. Experiencing perspective and excitement through the eyes of a child is a fantastic feeling and helps us focus on the little things in life.
Bring Out Your Creativity
Working in a daycare will let you unleash your creative beast if you are missing using your creative side each day! Whether it’s painting, building things out of popsicle sticks, or dressing up to tell your favorite stories, working in a daycare is for you!
As we get older, we don’t use our imagination as much, but our imaginations are still filled with dreams, goals, and fun ideas. Kids will embrace your creativity and energy, making you never want to work anywhere else!
