Five reasons to choose a career in Early Years

Are you looking for a career with a purpose which gives you a true sense of achievement at the end of the day? If your answer is yes, then a career in Early Years is for you!

Here are five reasons why you should choose a career in Early Years.

No two days are the same

It sounds cliché, but honestly no two days will ever be the same when working in a childcare setting. If you are looking for a career with variety, working in childcare could be the career for you!

It's lots of fun!

Working in childcare allows you to view the world through the curious eyes of a child. You will be planning fun, engaging, and stimulating learning opportunities and experiences for the children to enjoy. If you love getting messy and having lots of fun, a career in Early Years might be the one for you.

Sought after

There is a lot of demand in the Early Years sector for dedicated, hardworking individuals who are passionate about helping children learn and develop.  Unlike other industries there are no shortage of vacancies for both apprentices and qualified Early Years Practitioners. Across our nurseries we have a range of vacancies at varying levels of seniority.

Great career development and progression opportunities

There are numerous progression opportunities available to help you progress along your chosen career path. The Ashbourne Day Nurseries careers page, Day Nurseries and the Government’s ‘Find a Job Service’ are great places to start the search for available positions.
