How to become a nursery school teacher watch

Announcements

    Hi,

    I am 19 years old and am qualified to be a Personal Assistant/Secretary...what I would really love to do is work with young children, perhaps special needs as I have worked in a Centre which helps mainly Autistic children. Does anybody have any idea how I could do this?

    Thanks in advance

    my sister is a studying to be a nursery nurse. if you ask around nurseries then some of them do courses in the nursery to train and get a qualification. warning in advance though: the hours are long and the pay is crap but if that's wot u wanna do go 4 it!

    i think you would need a NVQ II and III in child care and education.

    try googling if no one else can help

    yeah google is really useful as well

    My mum is a Nursery Nurse and specialises in helping those with special needs; such as autism, epilepsy and growth disorders etc.

    I believe she did a Cashe diploma in Child Care and Development which accounted for 4 A-levels somehow.

    If you have any more questions, just ask and I'll ask my mum.

    You could qualify as a teacher (nursery age group).That would be better paid than being a nursery nurse. If you already have A levels it should be no problem, but I think because of the shortage of teachers now you might be able to train anyway.
