A Toddlers Teachers Poem

Although I am not their parent,

I care for them each day.

I cuddle, sing, & read to them

And watch them as they play

I see each new accomplishment

And help them grow and learn.

They come to me for comfort.

I soothe away their tears.

They proudly show their work to me.

I give the loudest cheers.

No, I am not their parent,

But my role is just as strong.

I know some day the time will come,

When we may have to part.

But I know each child I have cared for,

Is forever in my heart.
