A career supporting children's early learning and development is a very rewarding experience. As a Nursery/Preschool/Childminder Assistant you could be working with babies, toddlers & preschoolers, assisting them with personal care as well as physical, intellectual, emotional, social and communication development. You would be encouraging them to walk, talk, sing, cut, draw, paint or play.
Essential skills are good communication, organisation, creativity, empathy, diplomacy and team working.
You will initially be working under close supervision, but as you gain experience you will be expected to use your initiative and identify tasks that need doing.
Before you can start working with children you will need to complete a DBS, Disclosure and Barring Service enhanced background check.
With the increase of government funding for Early Years the demand for places is set to increase and settings are expected to expand and new ones open.
The role of a Childcare worker can vary from setting to setting, depending on the needs and age of the children. Some of the main duties and responsibilities could include:
Your progression options enable you to work for employers that include nurseries, preschools, schools and local authorities.
