Like every other profession, working in a nursery school has its share of coded vocabularies, and technical terms understood and used by those in the field.

One TikTok user, Chelsy, who supposedly worked in a nursery school, is letting netizens in on some of those classified descriptors, including the seemingly derogatory term "monkey."

She shared: "Nursery workers be like… They've been a bit of a monkey todayꟷ 'THEY DIDN'T LISTEN TO A WORD I SAID AND DID WHATEVER THEY WANTED.'"

She also explained other polite means of describing a child's behavior at the end of the day, common to nursery workers. In her perspective, when a nursery worker tells a parent their kid has been very vocal that day, what they meant was, "they screamed a lot."

Another descriptor, "they've been very active today," translated to, "they climbed on every piece of furniture." Chelsy's revelation, which has garnered over 57,000 views, sent many netizens on a laughing spree.

The TikToker also admitted she found herself laughing after making the video. Taking to her caption, she wrote, "I made myself laugh making this btw #nurserynurse #nurserypractitioner #nurseryworker #nurseryteacher #nurseryworstress #earlyyears."

Several TikTok users who also worked in nursery schools or had experiences dealing with toddlers could relate with Chelsy's explanations, which they also found hilarious. One commenter wrote:

“OMG! The accuracy.”

Another commenter described Chelsy's video as her life working with toddlers, while a third agreed, saying she could not "relate to anything more."

Via comments, the poster admitted there were more nursery school terminologies up her sleeves that could sum up to thousands more of the TikTok clip.

Notably, the nursery worker's TikTok page is filled with insights into her life as a professional child handler. Some of her posts focus on criticisms she has received in her line of work from those who believed childcare was a "way out of doing a proper job."

Replying to critics, the woman explained that her job entailed more than just cuddling babies all day, which requires more effort than people care to admit.

Despite the difficulty involved in childcare, Chelsy describes it as the most rewarding job ever. Many parents have supported the TikToker's appraisal of nursery workers, knowing how priceless their contribution to society could be.

Aside from giving working parents opportunities to take on their job knowing their kids were in good hands, childcare workers also help offer kids some of their first real-life lessons. Such early education is priceless, especially when experienced in the company of other toddlers.
