Why study childcare?

posted by Hannah on Wednesday, 11 May 2016

It is widely known that how children engage in learning during their early years is important in determining their future, but why study childcare? Well, you can be a part of that future by choosing to study a course in childcare.

We all remember our days at school, from our first nervous introduction to the classroom to the fun and chaos of the playground! As a result of those fond memories, many people are drawn towards working with children and enabling the next generation to access brighter futures.

There is a wide range of careers available in the childcare sector, from working in a nursery setting with babies and toddlers to teaching teenagers in a school, with progression to further education often encouraged. If you are passionate about helping children, patient, caring and hardworking, then this may well be a path you wish to follow.

A career in childcare will provide you with the privilege of watching children grow and turn their dreams into realities. Those who work in childcare often say that the favourite part of their job is allowing children to just be themselves. You will also experience that unique feeling of having contributed to that individual child’s education and development.

You will get to spend your days with children of all backgrounds and abilities � teaching them, playing games to improve their social skills, and entertaining them through stories. Many practitioners in this field also enjoy the benefits of running their own business and being able to provide a service that suits the needs of both children and their parents.
