not sure i did NVQ's first 2 then 3 not going for level 4 yet

I'm doing NVQ3 ccld, chose this as I thought having a general early years qualification would be better than a childminder specific one as tbh I don't plan on being a childminder forever. CCLD is a good qualification for a range of childcare jobs.

Depends why you want to do it and how you like to work I guess.
