Welcome to Week 2 of our Men in Childcare campaign, focusing on how colleagues can take their next step into this exciting world of opportunities. This week we hear from Daniel Berry from Cheltenham Nursery who talks about the variety of his role and why he loves working in the world of Childcare.
We hope you enjoyed watching the update from colleague Julie Coote, last week who has now started a new journey from Food to Childcare – Congratulations Julie and good luck in your new role!
We are now recruiting and we have some exciting opportunities for our colleagues;
