    hey i have done it and its great from a job point of view but the company is shocking you will make great friends and have amazing stories and opportunities but you will often work 13 days straight with no day off doing about 10 hours paid work a day personally i would suggest doing it for 6 months getting the nvq and all the other qualifications then moving on to another company or opearing (looking after kids) would recommend just for the experience but few things to know after rent and food has come out you will have about 300 ish to play with and depending on center you will probably be sharing a room with 3 other people, the food is good but usually most of your money will be spent on buying more food cause the portions are so small but overall if you love kids and working outdoors then its good i would suggest starting in march ish time so you get all the summer it is horrendous belaying in winter
    hope that helped
