Why choose a career in Childcare & Early Years

Rewarding Career

Working with children brings many rewards, it is a chance to see children flourish in their development and become confident, independent learners. For many practitioners working in childcare they don’t see this as a job they see it as an opportunity to make a real difference to a child’s life. 

No Day is the Same

A job that involves working with children is a fun one. There will be times where you will be getting messy with children and helping them learn through play. Other times may involve planning a trip to the local Farm or working with a child that needs some additional support.

Many Progression Routes

 People have to start somewhere on the career ladder and with the industry growing at a rapid pace there are great opportunities to train at a higher level. There are many career routes in childcare leading to possibility of running your own nursery.
