Starting a new job. Help please!

I have recently been offered a job in a nursery to cover maternity leave for around 6 months starting the 5th Nov. I will be based in two rooms being a key person to around 4 children in each room.
I had a long induction today (went through all general stuff, look around, and basics on children's profiles) but I'm worried that I'm not going to grasp everything quick enough.
I have done an early childhood studies degree but have spent most of my time in schools and have little experience in nurseries apart from general supply work. I have had to do observations, planning and evaluations for my assignments at university but never in a work environment. So I'm a bit nervous about the responsibilities im going to have and whether im going to be good enough.
Im wondering if anyone could give me any advice please, or tell me a bit about their experiences in starting a job? Any thing will be very much appreciated!
Thank you in advance :)
