Students on Placement or Work Experience at Busy Kids

We recognise the value of students coming to Busy Kids for work placements. Work placements provides the student with an opportunity to participate in working as part of a team, share experiences with the staff team, and develop skills, confidence and competency in caring for children and to ask questions and use the resources available to reinforce the theory learned as part of their course.

Creche Work Placement also benefit us, as it keeps the staff up to date with new developments in childcare training and allows us to showcase the quality of the service we provide.

From time to time Busy Kids will offer work experience placements to students. Student must be 18 years or over and should apply for work experience as soon as their college or agency provides the dates.
