A poem for my Key Worker
This weekend is Mothering Sunday
A day to celebrate and say thank you to our mothers.
But we think there are a few other amazing women (and men) that need some thanks too!
Nursery Practitioners across the country are doing a fantastic job of helping to raise our children. It’s a difficult and often undervalued job. To show my gratitude I have written this poem to my daughters Key Worker.
For all of those who don’t get thanked from their children’s parents – this is for you too!
To my daughter’s Key Worker
This one is for you
To say a sincere thank you
For the things you do
You endure her tantrums
You are there to wipe her tears
And somehow you always smile
When each morning she appears!
Your kindness is incredible
Your patience is untrue
You’re always full of excitement and joy
And she loves spending time with you
You teach her new things daily
You give her a chance to play and explore
She always has a smile on her face
When she walks in through that door
You are there for her when I can’t be
When I’m needed elsewhere
When she wants a hug or a hand to hold
It’s you who shows her care
You are a mother, teacher, an entertainer
A nurse and a chef too
Me and my daughter are so grateful
That we got a Key Worker like you!
