Currently I am studying Level 2 in Early Years Childcare and have volunteered at the nursery for 7 months now, but I feel like I would be more suited to being a teaching assistant more than a trainee nursery nurse. You get less money being a TA rather than a nursery nurse, but I don't know which to go for. I want to be helpful and make a difference and I do want to become a reception teacher myself one day. I also dont really want to deal with changing nappies everyday for children so I would prefer to deal children a bit older than them because I get along with them better than the younger ones . Any advice would be appreciated

Do you think you would enjoy being a TA more, and could you get by on the reduced salary? If so then I think you should go for that; it certainly sounds more aligned to your interests from what you've said here!

You would get more money as a ta and is better for the long run. I have worked in nurseries and every time it has been minimum wage.

Honestly, teaching assistant jobs pay is way more than a nursery nurse! Nursery job is rewarding! And you won't always be changing nappies all the time as you are helping the babies grown and develop into toilet training in the future.
