BISCUITS!.......not in front of the children I must add.

 

It is however the local elections today that have made my staff happy (closed our nursery as the village hall is a polling station).....and it's a beautiful day.....I'm happy!

That's what I rely on, pleasant working conditions/atmosphere go a long way - I also pay them as much as I possibly can - they are privy to the income and outgoings associated with running our pre-school........and that's it really we think of it as 'our' pre-school.......

 

Then of course there are pressies at Christmas and a little extra in pay whenever I can manage it :1b

for me it was listening to them, taking their thoughts on board and trying new things out.. discussion before changes... consulting them... involving staff with the running of the group.. not excluding them from decisions... trying their ideas out.. giving reasons for changes, and being flexible..

 

Paying as much as we could.. .letting them know the financial side so they knew the reason for the wages we could afford,,

 

and lots of thank you, please and help!

 

I did buy a small gift for all at Christmas.. a personal gift not the setting.. in Santa's sack ..

 

Summer term we had a girls night in.. staff member allowed us to use their home for this.. often one who would have needed a babysitter to go out.. a takeaway delivered, all donated a bit each month to the pot... as much as they could afford.. ( I topped it up if we needed to) and all brought a bottle.. usually finished about 4am!

 

other than that it was supporting each other all the time..
