Now, in Fudia’s own words, she wants to send a message to others that if you want something, you can make it happen:
“Prior to becoming an apprentice I was a stay at home mum. It was when the children went to school that I thought it was time to do something with my life.
I decided to approach my local nursery, MerryKidz Childcare, to see if they had any job opportunities, and they did. They took me on and it wasn’t long after that my manager asked me to do my Level 3 Childcare Qualification with Realise.
As an Early Years Practitioner Apprentice at MerryKidz Childcare, I help improve children’s development in every area of their lives, which includes cognitive, language and better school readiness. I also allow parents to have time to rest, go to work or study, whilst being safe in the knowledge that their little ones are being safely looked after.
I love absolutely everything about my job – especially watching the children grow to their full potential. When I am having a deep conversation with the children, they never fail to make me laugh!
