I worked my little butt of doing my BTEC in childcare and came out with a triple distinction which to this day I am still very proud of.

    I have complete respect for my son’s nursery workers – I find him hard work on my own sometimes, and they have another 20 kids to deal with! I know how much paperwork they have to do, as half of it probably comes from me emailing them for various reasons! I think as a parent we can completely appreciate how hard childcare providers work, and as much as you love your job, it’s hard work like any other job is. As for the hours – our nursery workers quite often start at 7 and finished at 6, so it’s a blooming long and tiring day! Hats off to you x
