stirling council's early years officer, lAURA MCcALLUM, TELLS US WHY YOUNG PEOPLE SHOULD CONSIDER A ROLE IN EARLY lEARNING & cHILDCARE.
Working within early learning and childcare truly is a privilege! Children are amazing and you can learn as much from them as they do from you.
Having spent 17 years in nurseries I can’t think of a more rewarding and fulfilling career. For me, it wasn’t the first path I took after school and I’m happy to share that, looking back, its OK to do that. If your decisions mean that everything doesn’t fall into place first time, try again or try another route.
