Hi LittleAntics, and welcome to the forum xD

 

I had hoped to complete the mandatory units by now, but running my own nursery, doing advisory work, and helping to run the forum has prevented me from doing so! :o

 

However, I closed down my nursery in July, and have made plans to resume the writing. I'll set about completing the mandatory units over the next few months. Which one are you working on at the moment?

 

Many thanks for your kind comments :(

I've been telling everyone I'm now a lady of leisure, but Steve has other ideas, I think! I'll still be involved in County stuff hopefully, and might venture into lecturing at some time in the future. And, of course, I have these two lovely forums to keep me occupied! :o

Hi Wolfie,

I don't think it'll hit me until the children go back on Thursday! It took a long time to make the decision, but I really feel it's the right one. I've never done anything for as long as ten years, so it was a record for me! We now have three more rooms to play with, and a garden that doesn't have toddler toys in it anymore xD (chickens instead, though) I'm really excited about the future now...with all the EYPS agenda, I think they'll be opportunities opening up for me to think about.

 

Hali,

I spent the last week of term crying :o Definitely no mascara that week! I'd been running the nursery with the same person, Mandy, for the whole time, and the staff team remained consistent so I was incredibly lucky.

 

Sadie,

Lots of reasons, really. One of them being our children are now 14 and 11, and we never use the nursery rooms out of hours, anymore. When they were little, we used them for after school playing, parties, etc. So, we thought we'd like our house back! I'm not sure what you mean by assessor sites, though?

Ah right, now I've got the idea. I was thinking more about University lecturing, not assessing, sorry. We have a great department at the University of Brighton for early years and teacher training and I've quite fancied having a go at that! If I come across anything useful for assessors, I will certainly let you know. :o

Hi trixybelle

Welcome to the forum.

Just to let you know that Helen is on holiday at the moment so won't reply for a while. I am sure she will catch up with this as soon as she returns.

There will be more, but quite when I don't know. Perhaps Helen will enlighten us when she returns from holiday. :o

 

In the meantime, have a really good look round the forum as there is a lot of useful advice and resources to be found here already. If there is something in particular you are not sure about then feel free to ask. :(

 

Good luck!

Hi Trixybelle,

Thanks for your kind comments xD

Well.... the plan was to write one every couple of months but that doesn't seem to happen for some reason! I will continue from September and try to keep to the plan :o
