  • be nice, loving, and make class fun for them! for those rainy days, and they need to run, i would have everyone lay on their back and kick their legs up in the air. they LOVED it!

    most importantly though, you want to make sure you have the room disciplined. that way you won't have them walk all over you, and they'll respect you more. the parents will see this and more than likely like you right away.

  • Kids this age are naturally open, it won't be hard as long as you are firm but kind

  • Oh gosh please don't coddle our children any more than they already are! lol People in positions of authority are not meant to be friends, but friendly. Does that make sense? Good luck at the new job!

  • Structure, structure, structure. Loving them is the easy part, but a lot of people don't realize that kids this age feel SAFE and SECURE when they know what to expect and know what comes next. Establish a routine and stick to it, no matter what. They will feel safe and secure and that easily translates into love and respect.

  • I worked at a preschool/kindergarten for a few years, and it was easy. Just be kind and empathetic and the children will love you. They WANT to like you and for you to like them. Just be careful not to show favoritism. Kids pick up on that and it can really hurt their feelings.
