Each day in the Early Years offers an unpredictable adventure awaiting me. One day I can be in a dinosaur party and the next day I can be grooving in 'Dough Disco'. The greatest thing about children is their never-ending interest, and this leads to endless fun and learning. Surely, the process will never be complete without a few funny (and sometimes messy) mishaps that can be a bit frustrating. But in the Early Years, the mess and the quirks are all part of it, and when I deliver something and witness the awe and engagement in my children, then that's more than enough to keep me going.
