Name: Karla Andrews


Position: Nursery nurse at Wainscot House Day Nursery in St Albans, Hertfordshire.

Why did you make the move from working as a nanny to a nursery nurse?

I found working as a nanny quite lonely at times and missed being part of a team. My job as a nursery nurse is a lot more challenging and rewarding.

How long have you worked at the nursery?

I've been at Wainscot House Day Nursery as a nursery nurse for five months now. Working at the nursery is very different to being a nanny, as every day is planned and structured in advance, whereas as a nanny I did my planning on a day-to-day basis.

What are your future plans?

I hope to continue working at the nursery and eventually become a room leader. In the next few years I want to train to be a special educational needs co-ordinator.
