So, my entire life I've been around my mom running an at home daycare. I grew up around babies, toddlers, & preschool children. I know this stuff. I've always wanted to be a preschool teacher. I've sat in on my son's preschool classes & it's def something that I think I'd enjoy doing everyday. I'm currently in school to earn my Early Childhood Development Associate Degree. I'm right now earning my Preschool Education Certificate. I have connections to Head Start in my state. I'm volenteering there for a class today and if I like it, I'm going to keep volenteering so my foot is in the door, which working for head start THE STATE is an awesome job. I'm so scared bc if I don't like it, WTF am I going to do with my life ? This is all I know. This is what I have a passion for. BUT an at home daycare is completely different than preschool or even a daycare center. I've worked in a daycare & I don't like how they are ran at all. I disagree with a lot of the things that are "rules" like not giving the kids at least water to drink through out the day. They only get something to drink at breakfast, snack, & lunch. I'm talking about a daycare center that these kids were with me all day & they got ONLY milk too. Some kids didn't like the milk & didn't get anything else to drink. Not ok with me. So... IDK I'm just SO scared that I'm not going to like it. IDK what to do then. What will I go to school for ? What will I do as a career ? My whole world will be falling into pieces. Today is a life changing experience for me. Lets hope its for the best ! Sorry had to vent. Thanks for listening.
