Cleaning while supervising

Post by mirrorreflex » Sun Nov 10, 2019 10:38 am

Hi,

At my centre we do not have a cleaner. Also recently I have been working by myself with the children.
So normally I have to do the cleaning (vacuuming, sweeping, etc.) by myself with sometimes still 11 children, some of which I suspect are undiagnosed.

I don't feel like I am demonstrating a proper duty of care to child and properly supervising them because of this.

Also some of the children really act up while I am distracted with this.

Any advice on how to keep kids from acting up while trying to do cleaning?

Can you gove them quiet activities to do in one part of the room that you are not cleaning? Or make a few busy bags that they can choose and complete while they are waiting. Puzzles is another good one to help keep them entertained.
