    I am currently doing work experience twice a week in a nursery. I have done work experience in 3 other nursery since year 10 and I loved all of them and I would do one or two weeks and from 9-3, and one of them I worked there Friday after school 1-3 for a year and a half.
    However at my new work experience I hate it! They make me bring them their tea and lunch even though they are in the kitchen and they can walk perfectly fine. Also I'm not qualified to change nappies yet they make me do them, I was told I would be playing and working with the children but all I do is clean. The nursery is in a hall and so we have to take everything out of the cupboards in the morning and put everything back at 1 when they finish. However because they have so much junk I spend hours cleaning everything away, and it's not that I can't be bothered to clean it all, but this isn't working with children and I fee like they're using me to just do jobs they don't want to do. I have 3 weeks left and a block week where I have to go in everyday and I'm dreading it.

    Should I change or stick it out?

    If I were you, I would just stick with it. I understand that you had it enough but you can just hold on another one month.
