    What if something happened to the child during the day and the educator had to pass that along? She has no relationship with the parent or child...

    I'm sure if she had to pass something to the parent that had happened in the day she would. Just because she is engrossed in the kids in the morning doesn't stop this

    Wouldnt bother me. As long as I was being greeted by someone.

    If they are young and shy well Im sure in time they will warm up and I would make the initiative to say hi and get yo know them.

    As for passing a message along and having no relationship with the child. I have passed on messages with ease knowing nothing about the child and parent and we all managed well. I passed on the message and the parent said thanks

    Default Childcare worker- how to approach awkward conversation

    How old is she? Agree she might be shy or new and if she is young she may be intimidated by parents- some can be scary I've done work experience at a centre! Yes she is in a job where she should be interacting with parents as well as the children, but confidence comes with time. The other thing is maybe her room leader has never told her to do it? If she is a student she may be under different instructions? Agree with other comments if other educators are already talking to you she probably wouldn't come up too.. If it was me and I was concerned I would introduce myself. Failing that speak to her room leader or the director for some approaches. Whatever you need to do to feel comfortable!
