I am a childcare student in CACHE level 2 and I am just about to finish my first placement off my course. I have loved every moment of it and it always makes a big impact on me. Yes I will probably cry after I have gotten to know them all so very well.
I don't want to just leave the nursery without making the children feel abandoned (lets be honest some of their Dads have already done that). I would like the children to have had a bigger impact with me guiding them through their development stages. So could you please land some suggestions on what would you think nursery children between the ages of 2-3 yrs would love to have in a nursery.
What about making a book of photos of them doing things.... (Jayden is climbing....Lily-Mae is drinking.....Mohammed is sleeping..... Amelia is riding a bike..... etc.,etc.) - great for language development. Children nearly always like to look at themselves in photos. It will be something the Nursery can look at over time and remember that childcarestudent1 made it for them..
<Obvs with the Nursery camera and running the idea past your mentor first as you will need to print out all the photos in Nursery and follow all sfaeguarding rules>
