Hi Karl! How long have you worked in childcare & what childcare qualifications do you currently hold?
“I have worked in childcare for 9 years and hold a degree in Educational leadership children workforce as well as being a qualified NVQ Childcare assessor”.
Why did you first want to start a career in childcare?
“I had an interest and didn’t initially follow it when I left school. When I found myself at 18 years old, 2 years removed from school and working as a baker for a well-known company I knew it was now that I had to change something. I enrolled on a 2-day introduction to childcare course through Scarborough council and the rest they say is history. 9 years later I am loving my career and can’t wait to go to work each day”.
What do you most enjoy about working in childcare?
“You are the witness of so many wonderful ‘firsts.’ The first steps, first mumbled ‘bye byes,’ the first time on the potty. When children accomplish something, it makes you beam with pride. I honestly believe that the day I don’t feel this anymore then it is time for a change”.
Do you have any children yourself? If yes, what are their names/ages/sexes?
