Q&A with Olivia Horton – National Apprenticeship Week 2019

As part of National Apprenticeship Week, some of our current apprentices took part in a Q&A to share their experiences of studying with Aspire Training Team at Tops Day Nurseries.

Olivia is currently undertaking a level 2 apprenticeship at Tops Day Nurseries Havant.

Can you tell us a bit about your role? 

Tops Havant is part of the Tops Day Nurseries family, who have 27 nurseries across the South Coast. My job role is to provide a safe and caring environment around the nursery and to go about the daily routine for children in the nursery.

Why did you decide to apply for an apprenticeship?

I decided to do a childcare apprenticeship because I love to be able to see how the children develop over time and see how they grow and the way their demeanour changes.

What do you plan to do after your apprenticeship?

I hope to complete my level 3 and become either a room manager or a teaching assistant.

What advice would you give to others thinking about completing an apprenticeship? 

I would say do it, this is an opportunity to go to work and love your job be happy to see how the children develop and there faces just make you smile each day.
