|Course:||Children's Play, Learning and Development (Level 2 Diploma)|
I came to The Henley College from Icknield Community College. I wanted to study the diploma course as I've always wanted to work with children. Ever since I was little I have always been interested to know how children develop and the different stages of growth they go through.
The part of the course I enjoyed the most was the craft activities. I was able to see how the children learnt from them and how they develop new skills out of play.
I've enjoyed doing placements, I liked going to a different school or nursery to see how the different ages of children learn and develop. I was also able to gain experience by observing and planning activities for the children. I am hoping to get a job in a school or a nursery and gain further qualifications after leaving college.
