I work as a preschool teacher in Touhula Laivakoira. I started three years ago, first on a part-time basis, and now I’ve been a full-time staff member for 18 months. I’m privileged to work with the preschoolers, they are an awesome bunch!
The best things are the days that are never exactly the same and the continuous development.
What matters most to us educators is that the kids feel at home, get to play to their hearts’ content, and that the days are filled with diverse activities.
Our gang is the best! The kids are wonderful, self-directed, and get excited about new things.
I hope to have stability and – at the same time – pleasant surprises and continuity. I also hope to be able to keep doing this work that I enjoy so immensely.
It’s impossible to name a single moment, but the trips, preschool soccer, and all-day trips to the woods are among the best.
My most memorable moment is related to the preschoolers’ trip to the woods that culminated in discovering a hidden treasure. The treasure consisted of preschool books – so the treasure hunt started at the moment of finding the books. This was truly a moment to remember for the children, and when a little preschooler looks me straight in the eye and whispers: “This is the best day ever”, it turned into the most memorable moment for me too.
